Love & Hip-Hop star/rapper Gunplay and his fiancée, Vonshae, have terrible news for their fans.
According to the newly engaged couple, their newborn baby was born with a rare heart condition called “Supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venus Return.” As devastating as the situation is, the couple claims they don’t have the financial capability to fund the necessary medication the condition comes with.
So they have set up a GoFundMe account hoping to raise $50K to pay for the early surgeries the infant needs to survive. With over 500 donations, the couple has raised over $18K since they created the account 2 days ago.
Gunplay has not commented publicly even after his fans are helping raise the money.

Media Take Out has some pretty sobering news today. Gunplay, a popular rapper who also starred in the hit reality show Love & Hip Hop Miami recently had a child, who was born with a pretty serious heart condition.
Lat month, Gunplay announced that he’s getting married to his gorgeous babys mother, Vonshee.
But the couple is going through it, Media Take Out has learned.
Gunplay’s new fiance told his fans, “February 15, 2023 will be a day our family will never forget. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl weighing 5 Ibs and 5 oz. Per protocol, my family was sent to postpartum care in the Maternity Ward for two days.”
“Upon being discharged our daughter’s oxygen stats were off and a cardiologist was called. Unfortunately, the doctors discovered a rare heart defect called “Supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venus Return”. This affects 1 out of 10,000 babies born. As of now, there is no explanation as to how and why this defect occurs,” she added.
And the story gets even more harrowing, Gunplay’s fiance continued, “At three days old our daughter was immediately transported to a children’s hospital that had a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) to be stabilized and scheduled for open heart surgery on February 24, 2023.”
“Upon completing the surgery the surgeon ran into a pulmonary hypertension issue with her lungs which has now left her chest open while sedated while they determine if a second surgery is needed.”
Then she asked Gunplay’s fans for help.
“As you can imagine, medical bills are at an all-time high even with insurance coverage. On top of basic living expenses and now her aftercare that will need to be managed for the rest of her life. We are asking for donations and prayers for our princess.”
We wish the young lad all the best and hope he pulls through safely! Here is a LINK to the GoFundMe account.
