Veteran hip hop recording artist Lil Kim recently confirmed her pregnancy during a New York City performance after photos of her bump Wednesday, February 12 at The Blonds’ New York City fashion week runway show took Twitter by storm.
At a M.A.C. cosmetics-hosted after party for that show at the Gilded Lily, Kim confirmed the news on stage announcing to the crowd while rubbing her belly “I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!”
She later told US Weekly
“I’m still going to work,”adding, “I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
The Magic Stick singer who has had on-again-off-again beefs with successor Nicki Minaj, also revealed that she is only a few months along though many people had speculated that she may be in her later stages of pregnancy. Every woman advances differently as we know.
Blogger Necole Bitchie reminds us that on an episode of VH1‘s Driven, Kim confessed that she was once pregnant with the late rapper Biggie Smalls (a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G.‘s) baby but miscarried. She mentioned him in the above performance and said “we” all miss him pointing to herself and her belly when telling the audience to remember the anniversary of his violent shooting death was coming up again.
Even though she told US Weekly that she had no plans to reveal the baby’s father, he reportedly stepped up and outed himself.
Twenty-something rapper Mr. Papers, her boyfriend, who was linked to her back in 2012 but was recently reported as having broken up, has come forward on social media.
After Kim’s announcement, he tweeted “Congratz on the royal baby!” and said thank you to a person who congratulated him on the baby news.
Congrats on the impending arrival. Babies are blessings!
