Yandy Smith is focused on family

    As one of the breakout stars of "Love & Hip-Hop" season 2, Yandy Smith was known for her success driven, paper chasin’ side until she parted ways as rapper Jim Jones’ manager, but this season she’s showing a softer side.

    This season, fans will see Yandy as a new mom to her beautiful son Omere, and viewers will get to see more of her personal life.

    "Last season I was completely closed and I didn’t want any of my personal life (no mom, no dad, no man, nothing) on the show," she told TheYBF.com. "I wanted season 2 to be focused on my business."

    When Yandy started filming season 3, she was eight months pregnant, and she said compared to the previous season, there was no way not to include her on-again, off-again boyfriend of six years, Mandeecees.

    "This season you see more of my family and what we go through being in the business and all that stuff," she said.

    Even though Mandeecees has a son from a previous relationship, Yandy said the biggest change she’s seen in him since she had their son is that he’s a great dad.

    "Baby Omere has just gotten us so much closer because I see how much he loves him and how much he wants to protect him, and that just makes me love him more," she said.

    Mandeecees chimed in to say that he enjoys being a dad and he likes watching Yandy.

    "It’s kind of weird now that Yandy’s a mother, and I’m so used to seeing her as the working lady. A working woman that’s always chasing checks and now she’s always holding a bottle and rocking a baby, and doing motherly things. It’s a big change, but it’s cool," he said.
