Bishop T.D. Jakes and First Lady Serita Jakes are going to be grandparents again.
Their daughter, Sarah Jakes Roberts and her new husband, Pastor Touré Roberts, are expecting their first bundle of joy together.
The two shared their happy news Sunday with their One Church LA family.
“For Touré and I, having a child together is the organic overflow of the love that we have been so blessed to share,” the glowing mom-to-be told ESSENCE in a statement.
She continued, “When I initially found out that I was pregnant, I was overwhelmed with surprise, excitement, and joy. Each of our children offer a special flavor to the blend that is our family.”

This is the second marriage for each who, combined, have five children from previous relationships. This makes baby number six.
“While we are ecstatic to know that our baby will represent a piece of each of us, we look forward to the unique individuality and impact our new addition is sure to bring to our family,” said Jakes Roberts.
Last November, Pastor Roberts told One Church congregants, “We have an incredible blended family and blended means we’ve become one.”
No due date has yet been shared.
Congrats to the happy couple!
