Update: Nas confirmed the news Sunday night at the Grammy Awards, saying, “I got another one coming in ’09, yeah!” The couple will discover the sex of the baby very soon, the rapper excitedly told MTV. “I find out what it’s gonna be next week, so I’m happy.”

Originally posted January 14th: Her milkshake may bring all the boys to the yard, but Kelis is ready to visit another kind of yard — the schoolyard! The singer and her husband, rapper Nas, are expecting their first child together, Us Weekly reports. “It’s all they are talking about. She is carrying hip-hop royalty!” a friend tells the magazine. “They are so excited.”

Kelis is reportedly in her first trimester, yet is sporting a “little bump.” This will be the first child for Kelis, 29, while Nas, 35, is father to a 15-year-old daughter, Destiny. Reps for the couple have yet to confirm the report.

That child is going to have the best name ever! Not to mention some serious style. Can’t wait!

Amber on

Can someone explain the hip hop royalty thing? I’ve only ever heard one of her songs, and I’ve never heard any of his on the radio nor do any of my students talk about listening to them. Perhaps I just live in the wrong part of the country?

Ariana on

Man, I love Kelis! Always have! Congrats!!
THAT KID IS GOING TO HAVE SOME SERIOUS STYLE!🙂

yes Amber, maybe you do live somewhere else. Kelis is very big in europe and she is known very much in the hip hop community for her collaborations. Nas is a legend in the hip hop community for his choice of topics and his word play.

OMG that baby will have the best shoe collection ever!

Amber, Nas is well respected within the hip-hop community. I wouldn’t say quite the same about Kelis, even though she is a good singer.
My personal Nas favorite which pumps me up everytime is his collaboration with diddy “do you hate me now”. Awesome rap!
