Kelis is having another baby!
The 40-year-old singer and chef announced on Wednesday (August 5) that she expecting her third child.
“Chef Kelis – table for 5 please. We’re adding one more! 🤰🏾🖤,” Kelis wrote on Instagram along with the below photo. “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.”
This will be the second child for Kelis and husband Mike Mora. They are already parents to 4-year-old son Shepherd and she shares 11-year-old son Knight with ex Nas.
Along with her post, Kelis discussed the significance of being a black mother in today’s social climate.
“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,” Kelis added. “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.”
Kelis continued, “Black mamas have the rights, respect, resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy. Together we can change these statistics, one woman at a time.”
