TIP DECLARES IT THE 'VERY LAST HARRIS BABY SHOWER'
Singer/Songwriter Tameka "Tiny" Harris was surrounded by friends and family as she celebrated the arrival of a seventh 'Harris' child to her family with husband, rapper/actor Clifford "Tip" Harris. The Atlanta couple arrived at the celebration with their six older children who all seemed to share in their parents excitement.
"We want to thank you all for joining us for the very last Harris Family baby shower," T.I. said jokingly to the roomful of well-wishers. "And for those of you who missed the first four, five, however many there were, I promise you this will be the last one and we're going out with a bang."
Atlanta event space Le Fais Do-Do was transformed into the "Harris Royal Palace" to fit the "Royal Affair" theme of the shower, complete with crowns and tiaras of all sizes, a palace-shaped cake and thrones for mommy and daddy.
In addition to traditional shower games, adapted to provide all-ages fun, guests also commemorated the event with photo-booth fun.

Following the shower, Tiny spoke exclusively with Entertainment Tonight, revealing new details about her third pregnancy and sharing that T.I. is much more hands on this time around. "I think it's because it's a girl," Tiny explained. "His protective nature is already coming out."
Tiny's baby girl, due in April, will be welcomed by oldest sister Zonnique Pullins, Tiny's daughter from a previous relationship; T.I.'s sons and daughter Messiah, Domani and Deyjah Harris, also from previous relationships; and the couples' two young sons together, King and Major Harris.
The family is currently filming the sixth season of their popular VH1 reality show The Family Hustle. T.I. is also currently completing a Vegas residency at Drai's Nightclub at The Cromwell Hotel.
