Unless you've been living under a Safaree-sized rock, you know that Love & Hip Hop Hollywood couple Lyrica and A1 are expecting a baby boy.

And despite all the on-camera drama surrounding Lyrica’s reported hook-up with her husband’s former best bud Safaree Samuels (and the ensuing whispers questioning who the unborn child’s father really is), the duo are sticking together. 

“Lyrica is distraught that people are saying Safaree is the father of her unborn child, this is the most beautiful moment in her life and people are trying to tear her down, it’s sickening to her,” a source already shared.

“It’s also causing a lot of tension between her and A1, they’ve been fighting a lot again over whether she did or did not sleep with Safaree. Lyrica is still sticking to her story and swears she didn’t sleep with Safaree but there are definitely some huge questions. She’s most likely going do a DNA test once her baby is born just to shut everyone up and end all these dumb questions.”

Plotline-boosting antics or real-life drama? Who even knows?

Besides, A1 and Lyrica made it clear that they indeed had a paternity test, which confirmed A1 is the father, during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show

“I knew it,” A1 explained to Wendy. “But things happen you know.”

Lyrica then jumped in to note, “Listen Wendy, I did this for him. … I wanted him to feel comfortable. I felt like since I was the one getting badge with the rumors he was owed that. I always knew.”

“What happens is, he thinks I’m just going to sit at home and watch the baby,” she also said. “We’re both musicians. We’re both songwriters. No, we’re going to take turns.”

How exciting!

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood stars #Lyrica and #A1 talk about the #Safaree cheating rumors, reveal if A1 is really the father of Lyrica’s baby, thoughts on #KMichelle and announce the gender of the baby.

Lyrica and A-1 both recently spoke up about their mutual transgressions in their marriage.

Safaree once told the world that he “didn’t mean for it to happen” but was never really upfront about clarifying what he was referring to. Plus, Ray J kind of tricked him into this admission.

Lyrica’s shutting this down though.

“I never slept with Safaree, I’ve bever been alone with Safaree.I don’t know what crazy girl is talking about, I don’t know what droopy booty is on. I have had no relations with that man.  Safaree claims that he said a joke to her [K. Michelle]—and she took it ran with it,” she told The Breakfast Club.

She also danced around a question about whether Safaree’s package is bigger than A-1’s, but made it a point to insist that they are just friends, saying, “I mean I saw it but I don’t want Safaree. He’s literally the homie—he was the homie.”

Charlamagne then asked, “Who’d you cheat with, Lyrica?” She then replied, “It’s nobody that y’all know. […] This is my husband’s baby, we’re having a boy.”

Now, they are celebrating by showing off Lyrica's growing bump with plenty of social media snaps. Including one in which they are adorned in coordinating track suits. Aw. 

Well, good for them. Hope that can clear up any last-minute marital messiness before the little one arrives.
