In the blink of an eye, Remy Ma and Papoose went from receiving the best news ever, that they were expecting a baby, to devastation after learning they lost the baby and Remy would not be able to carry her own child.
At the top of the episode, they shared their joy when Remy surprised Pap with the news of her pregnancy. After a year of marriage and nagging his wife to slow down and make a baby, Papoose was overjoyed that Remy was carrying their child.
So often on Love & Hip Hop, pregnancies are a surprise, and in this case, it was the best kind of surprise, despite being intensely thought out.
But at the end of the episode came the life-changing news that Remy was having an ectopic pregnancy and the fetus needed to be removed, but worse still, she learned that she can’t have any more pregnancies. It’s a devastating blow to their family, as Remy explains, “I promised my husband that I would give him the child that he’s been asking me for since almost the day he met me and I can’t do that any more.” Ever since they arrived on the show, we know how much it meant to them to have a child, and to receive news like this is a blow.
Papoose explains that watching his wife break down makes him break down too, but he has to be strong for her. “I have to be the rock for her… We’re gonna get through it, we’ve just got to take it one day at a time. Regardless of what we have to do, we’re gonna get through it together.”
Our hearts broke a million times over watching this. We can only imagine how they must have felt.
