Original Story: (Sep. 21, 2023): Congratulations are in order!

TLC’s Chilli and her family are surely happy and celebrating as her only son Tron Austin recently shared that he and his wife will welcome a baby girl early next year.

Yesterday (September 20th), Tron Austin took to social media, uploading a sonogram of his unborn baby along with a heartwarming post dedicated to his wife Jeong Ah Wang Austin, writing:


He continued:

“To my wife I am so proud of you witnessing you going through so much just to get our beautiful baby here I am in awe of your efforts and I am blessed and honored by Jesus himself to begin this journey with you I love you so much you are going to be the best mother EVER ! We came a long way 5 years later we are married and expecting our first child. loyalty goes a long way,”

The 26-year-old musician went on to reveal the intense process his partner endured while they attempted to conceive through IVF and even shared they suffered a miscarriage. He added:

“She went through: 2 HSG procedures, 1 hysteroscopy, removal of both tubes and scar tissue’s from hernia & appendicitis surgeries, 1 egg retrieval, 1 miscarriage And still stayed strong through the whole thing!#IVF has tested us and blessed us through a year and a half journey. We will be the best parents for our little one and we just cannot wait for her to be here.”

Tron’s coming baby marks Chilli’s first go at being a grandmother. The 52-year-old songstress, real name Rozonda Thomas, shares her only child with ex and fellow musician Dallas Austin. Neither has seemed to address their coming grandchild publicly at this time. However, seeing as though Chilli expressed her hopes of expanding her family with boyfriend Matthew Lawrence earlier this year, it seems safe to assume she’s ecstatic about the new addition.

If you recall back in March, the Grammy Award winner and the “Boy Meets World” star made headlines after separately dishing about their plans to have children together just a few months after going public with their relationship. Lawrence, 43, gushed about his new partner and admitted she’s absolutely someone he would like to experience parenthood with. The actor was previously married to dancer/model Cheryl Burke, but the former couple never conceived children together.

Speaking about having a family with Chilli and praising her relationship with Tron, Lawrence previously stated:

“She’s already a mother, she has an incredible son. I respect so much as to how she’s raised him…She’d be an incredible mother again and I’d be incredibly lucky but that’s way in the future.”

Congratulations again to the family!
