The answer is a resounding YES! Lil’ Kim is indeed pregnant! According to ABC News, the 39-year-old rapper publicly announced the surprising revelation last night at New York Fashion Week.
The former first lady of Bad Boy made an appearance at the The Blonds Fashion Week after-party hosted by Mac in New York City flaunting an evident baby bump and the media immediately went into a frenzy. With all of the media attention surrounding the unanswered question, she decided to confirm the news.
She took the stage, and made the big announcement. “I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!” she said as she rubbed her baby bump.
The congratulatory messages began pouring in. Perez Hilton posted a picture of she and Lil’ Kim via Instagram shortly after the announcement. The picture’s caption read, “Me and a very PREGNANT #LilKim at #TheBlonds show. Congrats, boo!!! #NYFW.”
Love and War singer Tamar Braxton also congratulated her via Twitter. The reality TV starlet tweeted, “”Awwwww congrats @LilKim on your little one.”

Then, the “No Time” rapper spoke exclusively with US Weekly to share her excitement about the pregnancy and her anticipation of embracing motherhood.
“I’m so excited! I’m a few months along, I can’t wait to be a mom!” She continued, “I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!… I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
Then, of course, Kim did what she does best. She took the stage performing her 2005 hit single “Lighters Up.”
Now, with the official pregnancy confirmation, there’s still one burning question: Who is the child’s father? Well, fans will just have to wait it out! Lil’ Kim has opted to keep the identity of her child’s father private for now. Only time will tell!
