Intentional or not, rapper Lil Kim has remained out of the public eye since announcing her pregnancy. Recently, she came out of maternity hiding showing up to a private event. Wearing a fitted black dress and sleeve-less fur, she posed with Big Fendi, CEO of Dirty Money Records and a friend.
In February, the 39-year-old announced her pregnancy, by showing up to New York Fashion Week, with a huge bump. She later told Us Weekly:
I’m so excited! I’m a few months along, I can’t wait to be a mom!
She added that fans shouldn’t expected time off.
I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!
During her first public appearance as an expecting mom, she took to the stage at The Blonds Fashion Week after-party telling the audience
I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!
Initially, Kim kept the identity of the child’s father under wraps. Her boyfriend, aspiring rapper Mr. Papers later confirmed that he was the father. On Valentine’s day, Mr. Papers called the Rickey Morning Smiley Show, confirming the great news. He shared that the couple are expecting a boy, but remained tight-lipped about baby names. He said:
Yeah, that’s my baby…I don’t really wanna give that to the world yet, but we gon’ let y’all know soon though. Word. You know what I mean? We ain’t gon’ hold it too long…He gon’ be a Gemini though. Youknow what I mean? But I don’t really wanna give you all that information.
Anywho, we’ll keep our eyes and ears open for more Ovary Hustlin’ Spottings.
