Did Ashanti’s bulging stomach confirm pregnancy with Nelly?
Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas, widely known by her stage name Ashanti, seems to be pulling a ‘Halle Bailey’ on her fans.
The couple piqued fans’ interest, fueling suspicions about her possible pregnancy at Nelly’s ‘Black and White’ Ball, which took place in St. Louis, Missouri, for its 11th commencement on Sunday, December 3.
After the stunning show, cameras captured Nelly happily cuddling Ashanti’s stomach as the MC instructed the crowd to yell, “Seal the deal!”
Nelly’s jaw dropped in amusement when Ashanti placed her hand over his before playfully slapping his hand away.
A recent video of Ashanti dancing on stage has sent the rumor mill into overdrive. Fans noticed that the Always On Time hitmaker appears to have gained some weight, especially around her tummy area, fuelling rumors of a baby bump.
Many could not miss the huge belt, which tried to unsuccessfully hide the cute bulge in her midsection as she proudly marched back and forth on stage.
After almost a decade of separation, Ashanti and Nelly rekindled their love earlier this year. The two Grammy-winning artists first got together in 2003 and broke it off in 2013 after a decade of a roller-coaster relationship.
Since their reconciliation, the lovebirds have been doting on each other, flaunting their adoration on social media. On Nelly’s birthday, Ashanti held three separate birthday celebrations, which climaxed with a luxurious, antique birthday present, allegedly the rapper’s childhood dream car.
For Ashanti’s birthday, the “Ride Wit Me” rapper presented his bae with two pieces of stunning diamond jewelry.
