The Queen Bee Lil Kim Is Pregnant — Tha Wire
Congrats to the Queen Bee. Lil Kim made her rounds during New York Fashion Week and to everyone’s surprise was visibly pregnant.
The Brooklyn femcee was sporting a baby bump under her designer dress when she arrived at The Blonds fashion show. No word on how many months or who the father is, but the 39-year-old rapper mommy-to-be glowed as she sat on the front row as the fashion event Wednesday night (Feb. 12).
Celeb blogger Perez Hilton was one of the first to reveal Lil Kim’s good news. He posed in an Instagram pic with Kim captioned, "Me and a very PREGNANT #LilKim at #TheBlonds show. Congrats, boo!!! #NYFW."
At last word, Lil Kim is single as she and her boyfriend Mr. Papers supposedly called it quits a few months ago. Either way the rapper doesn’t appear to have to far to go in her pregnancy and we wish her well.
