Ryan, Black Ink Chicago, Baby Mama

Black Ink Crew Chicago is back and better than ever!

Ryan Henry's baby mama is his ex-girlfriend, Rachel Leigh.  The couple sadly broke up after she gave birth to their adorable son Mason.  After her relationship with Ryan ended she had another son with singer, Jeremih.  Rachel and Jeremih were in a relationship from 2011-2012 but then they broke up.  Rachel is the mother of Jeremih's son, Grey.

Jeremih and Rachel had a horrible custody battle that started in 2014.  Rachel called Jeremih a deadbeat explaining that Ryan was Grey's father figure.  We saw Ryan and Grey's relationship on the first season of Black Ink Crew Chicago.  Jeremih's career recently took off.  As a result, the signer has been busy and if Rachel wasn't willing to work with his schedule it would be difficult for him to spend time with his son.

Rachel and Ryan made it obvious that they were still in love throughout the show's first season.  That's most likely why Ryan doesn't mind being Grey's father figure.  Ryan has seen it all.  He grew up on the streets of Chicago where his sister and niece were murdered.  His sister, Nova Henry and her infant daughter, Ava were both shot to death by former Chicago attorney Frederick Goings.

Nova was the ex-girlfriend of former NBA basketball player, Eddy Curry and Ava was their daughter together.  Nova hired Frederick to handle her child support case against Curry but later fired Frederick.

In the season 2 premiere "The Nicki Minaj of 9Mag" we see Ryan step up after his staff begins taking advantage of him.  When you have been through as much as Ryan being disrespected can be really frustrating.  Don't miss the next episode of Black Ink Chicago!
