Simmons and his family “believe in the celebration of life in death.”
(September 28, 2006)

*Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons released a statement Tuesday regarding the death of his newborn daughter, Victoria Anne. 

“On Sept. 26, 2006, Victoria Anne Simmons for some unknown reason chose to come early and unfortunately did not survive,” his statement said. “We must accept whatever is there and once you accept unconditionally, then everything is beautiful. Every pain has a purifying effect. So whatever comes your way, just be thankful. We see life in death and believe in the celebration of life in death.”

Run’s wife Justine was pregnant with Victoria throughout much of their MTV reality show “Run’s House” last season. The sex of the baby was left as a cliffhanger on the season finale. 

Run was with Justine when doctors at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood New Jersey delivered the baby via c-section. According to TMZ, Victoria was born with her organs outside of her body. She died a short time later.

TMZ has learned that MTV cameras were inside the hospital at the time of the birth, but it is unclear if they were in the delivery room. 

Run, the brother of Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons, was a member of rap group Run DMC. He has five children.
