Still no official word about the baby's daddy, but read below for evidence linking her to New York rapper Mr. Papers. Congrats, Kim!!!
Original Story: The original Queen Bee will have an heir: Lil' Kim is pregnant! The veteran rapper revealed her baby bump at an after party for New York Fashion Week.
"I'm so excited," Kimmy Blanco told Us Weekly. "I'm a few months along, I can't wait to be a mom!"
But if you think impending motherhood will tone down the woman famous for raunchy jams like "How Many Licks," "Suck My D-ck" and "Magic Stick," well, think again. "I'm still going to be hardcore," she assured fans. "I'm still going to work. This baby has made me even more of a beast. I'm a mom, but I can turn it up a little."
Kim announced her bundle of joy onstage while performing at the Blonds Fashion Week after party. Before going into 2005 Top 40 hit "Lighters Up," the MC paid tribute to past lover/collaborator Notorious B.I.G. "It's also going to be Biggie's birthday and the anniversary of his death soon, so we love you," Kim said while pointing to her bump.
The 39-year-old is keeping the identity of the unborn baby's father private, but it appears New York rapper Mr. Papers might be the proud papa. The MC has been tweeting retweeting congratulation tweets along with photos of him and Kim.
