Kelis is pregnant for the second time, and the 36-year-old showed off her very sizable baby bump while performing on stage at this year’s Afropunk Festival in New York. E! News reports that Kelis, who is said to be several months into her pregnancy, is “feeling great.”
An insider revealed, “She is really excited about her pregnancy,” adding that the “Milkshake” singer has received great support from friends and family. “She is in really amazing spirits.”
Kelis herself has since confirmed the exciting news to Us Weekly, joking about her cravings for tomatoes and how neighbors leave homegrown ones at her front door. She said that she devours them raw with just salt and pepper.
Kelis, who’s also a certified chef, already has a son, Knight, with her ex-husband and rapper, Nas. On her six-year-old, she added that he can’t wait to become an older brother. “My son is excited…and I’m thrilled. With my cookbook coming out and a new baby, it’s a really exciting time for us,” added the R&B crooner. Her book, My Life on a Plate, will come out next month.
Although there is no news on who the father is yet, he is assumed to be the same unknown man with whom Kelis was first seen last summer. Despite the Grammy-nominated singer trying to keep her love life under wraps, the chemistry between the two was unmistakable as they were spotted walking hand-in-hand along Venice Beach.
And with Kelis mentioning an undisclosed “him,” in her social media posts of food over the past little while, one can presumably say that he’s been around for a while now. Plus, in April 2014, she was asked on 106 & Park whether her references were for her son, and she coyly hinted at a relationship, saying, “Obviously I cook for my son all the time, but, ‘Things I make for him,’ is not [referring to] my son. And that’s that,” she added with a laugh.
It was also rumored that Kelis wed her beau in secret last Thanksgiving, but with no confirmation from her side, those rumors haven’t yet been validated.
