Even though singer Keyshia Cole’s newest baby boy, born August 1, is almost a month old, fans are still swooning over the BET reality TV star’s maternity photos.
The 4-time Grammy nominee reposted a photo taken by Los Angeles, California-based studio The Pod Photography on her Instagram though she’s since taken it down.
“Ok, I KNO BABY BOY IS HERE NOW!!!!! ???? But I just HAD TO POST THIS PIC!! It’s sooo dang on cute???❤️,” Cole captioned a photo of herself sitting on a throne, donning a Grecian crown and surrounded by ornate ornaments.
“Gonna bring baby boy there in a few weeks!!!! Maybe we could add him to one of the pictures we already took!!” she said of the glorious image which featured the “Love” singer wearing a brown sleveless ruffled empire waist top with sheer light brown organza draping over her bare bump while she sat barefoot in front of dark paneled room with red curtains.
The studio posted the images on their site including a photo of Cole and her boyfriend Niko “Khale” Hale and 10-year old son Daniel Gibson Jr., whom she shares with estranged husband and former Cleveland Cavaliers player Daniel Gibson.
Keyshia Cole is a mom for the second time! The “Love” singer and her boyfriend Niko Khale welcomed a baby boy on August 1 at 11:11pm…the same time mom was born! Cole and Khale made the joyous announcement on Instagram, sharing precious family moments leading up to the baby’s arrival.
“My beautiful family,” Khale wrote under a family portrait of himself, Cole and her son Daniel, Jr. “Baby boy almost here! I’m nervous, excited, & impatient. We welcome him to the world TOMORROW.” The mommy-to-be looked gorgeous and ready to pop in a mint green two-piece lace set with her baby bump on full display. The fellas look dapper in all white.
R&B singer Keyshia Cole welcomed the impending arrival of her second child this past Saturday at an indoor/outdoor baby shower in Los Angeles.
Cole and her partner, aspiring rapper Niko Khale, are expecting their first child together. The new baby will join Cole’s s 10-year old son, Daniel Gibson Jr., from another relationship.
From the looks of a blue floral wall and blue balloons it appears she is expecting another baby boy.
Cole, who starred in three reality TV show on the BET Network and is currently filming a baby special, wore a white gown and a crown of blue flowers for the special occasion.
Attendees included her controversial birth mom Frankie Lons, her adoptive mother Yvonne Cole, Love & Hip Hop Hollywood stars Zell Swag and Paris Phillips.
“4 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!! Omg!!!!!!! I soooo ready to meet my little munchkin #2 FAMILY AND FRIENDS CAME OUT YESTERDAY AND I WANT TO SAY …………. THANK U SOOOO FOR COMING AND TRAVELING,” she captioned a series of photos from the event.
Family and vendors shared photos from the event on the Gram. The fact she tagged BET has us thinking the network was probably filming for her upcoming special as well.
“Had an awesome time FIRST WEEK OF FILMING. KEYSHIA COLE IS COMING BACK TO BET!!!!!,” the singer captioned a recent series of Instagram photos of herself, including a couple with her 10-year old son Daniel Gibson Jr inside a baby store with cameras in tow. “But this time she’s bringing Something SPECIAL! A BABY SPECIAL.”
The former reality TV star was dressed in a bump bursting yellow top with distressed denim maternity jeans in the pics. She is expecting with boyfriend and aspiring rapper Niko Hale.
This would be Cole’s fourth foray into reality TV.
Her first was a hit for BET, Keyshia Cole:The Way It Is, which originally aired in 2006 and was one of the most watched shows and focused on her strained relationship with her biological mom, Frankie.
Keyshia Cole is embroiled in a slight controversy over a fake pregnancy announcement she made recently, she said in response to being body shamed.
The R&B singer, responsible for big hits like “Love” and “I Should Have Cheated,” told fans last week that she was expecting.
“PreggoInMyFashionNovaFit #CongratulationsAreInOrder,” she captioned an Instagram pic posing in a cute snakeskin number.
Then, a few days later, Cole, who is mom to one son, Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr., with ex-husband and former NBA star Daniel Gibson, fessed up and apologized for intentionally misleading fans.
The joke caused a lot of her fans to accuse the petite star of playing the prank for attention, but she flipped the outrage by pointing fingers at her social media fans for making her feel bad about weight gain.
“I kinda apologize for #trolling… telling y’all I was #preggo,” she explained in a follow-up Instagram post. “Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and saying I’m pregnant every other day.”
She claims the constant speculation “hurts my feelings,” adding, “thought it was sweet that you all were excited about the news tho.”
While some fans who have had fertility problems slammed her for making light of a serious matter, others stated they understood her frustration.
