Singer Kelis has announced that she is expecting her third child.
She announced the happy news via her Instagram account.
“Chef Kelis – table for 5 please. We’re adding one more! 🤰🏾🖤 Happy to announce that I’m expecting and I’m partnering with @firstresponsepregnancy, as they are committed to supporting healthy, equitable pregnancy journeys and understand the importance of a nurturing environment for black women and mothers, “she wrote in the caption which featured a picture of her holding a positive pregnancy test.
Kelis and her husband Mike Mora share a 4-year-old son Shepherd. The pair have been married since 2014. She also an 11-year-old son, Knight, from her first marriage to rapper Nas.
Her post continued, “As a Black mother, there are so many things to consider during this time in your life, especially during the crazy times that we live in — from what we eat, to how we live and love. This is the time we must take for ourselves without apologies, especially when we still live in a country where Black women historically have had the highest maternal mortality rates.
“So for me, self-care has become paramount, particularly in the beginning stages. Knowing your body and what it needs, being able to be still and quiet enough to hear what it tells you. That’s why I used a First Response Early Result test as it can tell you if you’re pregnant 6 days sooner than your missed period.”
Congratulation to Kelis and her beautiful, growing family!
