Kelis Welcomes Baby Girl After ‘Intense’ Labor
Congratulations to singer Kelis, who welcomed her baby girl!
She shared the news on Instagram Friday (Sept. 11th) and said the labor was nothing short of “intense.”
“Hey, so I’ve been kind of MIA…but for a really good reason cause I just had my baby. And it was intense. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I’m generally a really private person, with my personal life, but I wanted to kind of bring my fam in, bring you guys in, to sort of talk about all of these women’s things we go through that no one really tells us about.”
She continued and said that she’s been focused on getting her body back.
“So I had my baby a week ago and I had a girl by the way – so I’m very excited about that – it’s my first girl!… I wanted to bring you into my process. I can’t work out for the next six weeks and if I don’t want to resort to wearing spandex for the rest of my life… I want to show you how I plan on getting back into my high-waisted jeans…with just food. No exercise…”
