AceShowbiz - Keyshia Cole is going to be a mother of two. The 37-year-old singer announced that she's expecting her second child on Instagram on Friday, May 3, showing off her burgeoning belly.
In her photo, the pixie-haired singer donned an all-black outfit including a jacket which featured a tile detailing. Sporting a pair of black sunglasses, Keyshia posed against a beautiful scenery of Catalina Island while cradding her baby bump.
Other photos saw her cuddling up to her boyfriend Niki Khale, who opted for a casual look in a navy jacket. The happy couple was snapped smiling and laughing as they shared the exciting news.
"Went to Catalina island Last weekend. Had such a good time!!!! Surrounded by Loooooooooove," so she wrote in the caption. "Just enjoying good times and GREAT VIBES I have a few shows coming up next weekend, DETROIT, MIAMI, 🥰 #MOTHERSDay is coming I'm ready for ALL THE Love and GREAT ENERGY."
Niko took to the comment section to express his feeling as he's about to enter parenthood with his singer girlfriend. "Excited to take on this journey with you baby... What a blessing. I love you," he wrote.
A lot of fellow celebrities and fans showered the couple with congratulatory messages. Among the well-wishers were "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes and Tiny a.k.a. Tameka Cottle. The TV star wrote, "Congrats sis," while the Xscape singer commented, "I fukn knew it!! Congratulations sis! So happy for u."
The unborn baby will be Keyshia's second child, joining nine-year-old son Daniel. Meanwhile, it will be the R&B singer and her 23-year-old rapper's first child together after they started dating in 2018. Keyshia shares Daniel with ex-husband Daniel "Boobie" Gibson, whom she married in May 2011. The two went separate ways three years after their marriage, though their divorce has yet to be finalized.
Last year, Keyshia trolled fans by saying she was expecting in an attempt to slam critics who body-shamed her. "I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y'all I was ##Preggo !!!!," she wrote on Instagram in July 2018. ""Buuuuuuut y'all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I'm PREGNANT EVERY OTHER DAY."
