Nas and Kelis Expecting a Son

He earlier this month confirmed that he’s an expectant father, and in a new blog entry to GlobalGrind.com rapper Nas, 35, reveals that baby-on-the-way is a boy. Writing that “life is good,” Nas adds, “I’m sure that y’all heard K is expecting…The internet seems to be more excited than I am.”

“It’s crazy! I got too much to think about, and I didn’t wanna leave all my fans out [of] the loop. But I wanted to let ya’ll know from me personally that I’m having my first SON!!!!!”

Baby boy will be the first child for Nas’ wife Kelis, 29, whom he married in 2005, and will join Nas’ 15-year-old daughter Destiny from a previous relationship.

let the tearing apart begin. i know some of the women here will rip apart his statement about the internet being more excited, but i don’t think he meant it in an uncaring way. he already has a child from another and maybe that situation didn’t go over too well. sometimes people get so brought down by former situations that they’re a little apprehensive about it when it’s actually good! i feel him on it. i want to have more children, but i don’t know if i’ll be as excited as how i was with my daughter because of the ordeal that followed.

Yeah, I’m so excited for them.

hcecilia- I think he’s referring to the eager baby watch. I’ve been on two other sites looking to see if they’d put out any updates as to the baby’s sex…between Kelis’ pregnancy, Jill Scott & T. Martin’s, I’m overly excited.

I personally don’t think he meant anything by it except, that Nas is known as a hip hop legend and fans are now excited that he will hopefully be able to pass the torch onto his son. The same way fans see CJ Wallace.

yeah, i think he means his fans are HELLA excited… like this baby is going to be an heir to a hip hop royalty… the only hip hop baby i can anticipate being more exciting is jay and bey’s…
