It’s been months since we’ve seen Kelis in public or in the headlines, but this weekend the genre-bending singer made a shocking splash on the internet when she revealed that she’s pregnant with her second child.
Kelis was on stage at the AfroPunk festival in Brooklyn, NY this weekend in a bright pink, flowy sheer dress; fans excitedly snapped photos of the FOOD singer as her pregnant belly showed through the dress (see below).
Kelis has a son, Knight, with her ex-husband, Nas, but this will be her first child with her longtime boyfriend, Michael Mora.
And according to E! News, sources are saying Kelis is, of course, thrilled to be pregnant.
“She is really excited about her pregnancy,” the source said. “She has a great support system from her family and friends. She is in really amazing spirits.”
Another source added that “she is several months along and feeling great.” And although her pregnancy is far along, another source says Kelis doesn’t plan on slowing down her career.
“She had a great time at AfroPunk this weekend and will continue to perform as long as she feels good,” the source said.
Congratulations to Kelis and Mora!
