The "Ring" singer announced on Twitter and Instagram Friday that she is pregnant with a baby girl. Kehlani revealed the news by posting photos on her social media accounts cradling her noticeable baby bump. Although the singer, who identifies as queer, didn't say who the father of the child is, the hip-hop star expressed that she is "so so so happy" about her pregnancy.
"i have a daughter. me. i. me! kehlani!" she wrote on Twitter. "i have a mini on the way. my partner is my best friend and quite frankly the only man on earth i trust. we are SO READY FOR U MIJA!!!!!!!!!"
"the decision to share this with the world was a tough one, but i really want to experience the freedom and joy any normal pregnant person feels," she continued. "i don't want to hide. i want to walk around belly out everywhere. ME AND MY SHORTY OUT HERE! SHE DONT WANNA HIDE NO MO!, this was so hard to contain. i'm so so so happy. the highest blessing one could receive. i love you already, mama. 4 months & so grateful."
"i've always been very open with you all about my personal adventures & accomplishments... this was the HARDEST to hide," Kehlani wrote in an Instagram caption. "if you know me, you know i've dreamt about motherhood since i was very young. when asked what my goals are, it's always the idea of a big healthy happy family & whatever comes along is a plus."
"i am so honored to be given this gift by spirit, creator, and an amazing partner whom i trust with my body and life," she continued. "after a very traumatic experience that had me afraid of interacting with men as a whole for what i was sure would be forever (i'll tell that story when it's time). i knew sharing something so personal and precious could bring stress into my world but there isn't a word anyone would say my way that could take away from this."
"dearest little girl, i am so proud to be your mommy," she concluded. "i am so proud to have received you. i cannot wait to meet you, i know you will be 50,000 times more special than i can even imagine at this moment. i am happy to document this journey and feel the freedom any pregnant person should. i'm looking forward to sharing my little world with you all... my partnership with my very best friend and lover, our journey of conception, my choice for a natural home birth with my AMAZING midwives at @parteramidwifery and eventually... the little pumpkin! i am now a HOME. 4 months and counting with you, angel of mine. SHE DONT WANNN HIDE NO MO 🌸🦋😍 we're so ready for you mija!"
