Kehlani Ashley Parrish

Kehlani and the New Generation of 20-Something Expectant Moms

Motherhood isn’t just for thirty something celebs you know. Then 19-year old Kylie Jenner, 22-year old Slick Woods and more recently 23-year-old singer Kehlani (full name Kehlani Ashley Parrish) are starting their families super early.

It’s a flip on the usual narrative about older celeb women having babies in their advanced years of late 30s to 40s and even 50s in the case of Janet Jackson and 54-year old Brigitte Nelson.

Kehlani announced her news by posting a a photo with a lengthy letter to her fans in the caption sharing the news earlier this month . It was followed by a series of endearing photos showing off her baby bump.

The Oakland-native didn’t share who her child’s dad is but otherwise she was pretty candid:

“I’ve always been very open with you all about my personal adventures & accomplishments… this was the HARDEST to hide,” the 23-year old shared about concealing her pregnancy. “[]If you know me, you know I’ve dreamt about motherhood since I was very young.:

She continued: “when asked what my goals are, it’s always the idea of a big healthy happy family & whatever comes along is a plus . i am so honored to be given this gift by spirit, creator, and an amazing partner whom i trust with my body and life. i knew sharing something so personal and precious could bring stress into my world but there isn’t a word anyone would say my way that could take away from this. dearest little girl, i am so proud to be your mommy. i am so proud to have received you. i cannot wait to meet you, i know you will be 50,000 times more special than i can even imagine at this moment. i am happy to document this journey and feel the freedom any pregnant person should. i’m looking forward to sharing my little world with you all… my partnership with my very best friend and lover, our journey of conception, my choice for a natural home birth with my AMAZING midwives at @parteramidwifery and eventually… the little pumpkin! i am now a HOME. 4 months and counting with you, angel of mine. SHE DONT WANNN HIDE NO MO ??? we’re so ready for you mija!
