'Big Momma Thang': Lil' Kim pregnant and not planning on slowing down

Hip-hop queen Lil’ Kim is going to be a mother. According to Us Weekly on Feb. 13, the rapper known for such hits as “No Time” and “Crush on You” is pregnant, but maintains that she won’t be slowing down.

The Brooklyn-born rapper expressed her excitement of the news, telling Us Weekly that she is a “few months along” and “can’t wait to be a mom.” At 39, Lil’ Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, says the pregnancy has made her even more upbeat about life.

“I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore,” she said. “The baby has made me even more of a beast!”

The expecting mother showed off her baby bump at the New York Fasion Week party. The identity of the father is still top secret, but motherhood should slow Lil’ Kim down even if she says it won’t.

Since making her big splash in 1996 with her debut album, “Hard Core”, the Grammy-winning rapper has been quiet the last few years except for a recent feud with rival artist Nicki Minaj. Another reason why Lil’ Kim has been out of the spotlight was because of time she spent in jail during the early part of the 00s. With all that behind her, the hip-hop queen is ready to welcome a child into the world.
