Charmaine Walker is officially a mother!
On Saturday, the “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” star and husband Nick Bey welcomed their first child together, a girl named Nola Glenda Bey.
“SAFE DELIVERY!!!!!!!!!!! Head full of hair!!!!” the father exclaimed on Instagram.
The reality TV personality later posted photos of her bundle of joy, who weighed in at 6 lbs. 14 oz and measured 19.5 inches.
“Welcoming our daughter Nola Glenda Bey! Today is the best day if my life! Labor was LIT!” Walker said. “I would do it over n over again. Big thank you to my husband @neekbey for being my soldier through it all. So worth it!”
Nola’s middle name appears to pay homage to Walker’s late mother Glenda, who passed away last October at the age of 62.
Speaking of Glenda, Walker said she envisioned her mom while in labor.
“When I was pushing [Nola] out I had an image of my mom holding her and it was the most beautiful experience ever,” Walker remarked.
While announcing her pregnancy last December, Walker said her mom told her, “I still can’t believe my baby is having a baby!” the night before she unexpectedly died.

Shoutout to Momma Glenda. She was so excited 🦋 The night before she unexpectedly passed away she said “I still can’t believe my baby is having a baby!” I’ll never forget those words. This has been an emotional roller coaster but I’m blessed to be bringing life into this world. #BabyBey
A day after her baby news, Walker revealed she and Bey recently got married.
“My fiancé Nick is no longer my fiancé,” she told People TV’s “Reality Check” in December. “We didn’t break up, we actually got legally married.”
“We decided that we just wanted to be together,” Walker added. “It was just kind of like we’re already engaged, so we’re obviously going to get married. Why wait? You know, obviously the cameras play a big part in our lives, so we just wanted to do something for us.”
