Singer Kelis — expecting a son on July 21st — covers her bump in style, matching her dress to her purse – and her hair! – at the eighth annual Four Seasons of Hope Gala at New York City’s Cipriani Wall Street on Tuesday.

Kelis, 29, recently opened up about the tough final weeks of pregnancy, saying, “My rib cage is being attacked by my stomach which is annihilating my lungs. I want this little martian now! I can’t wait — the suspense is crazy.”

Baby boy will be the singer’s first child. Dad is estranged husband Nas.

I miss being pregnant:( I remember feeling like it would never end, and now I miss it. My son just turned 2 and my daughter is almost 6 months so it will be a looong time before I have another!

Maybe her baby boy’s aura is coming out with all this blue she has been wearing!!!!

Something about her is very beautiful in this picture. Even with the blue hair. Maybe it is her glowing face, but she looks radiant.

I hope the rest of her pregnancy goes smoother than as of late.

Poor girl, she looks so ready to pop! But you can totally tell that she is ALL belly and will be one of those people that are back into their pre-baby jeans the next week!

Really? Nobody’s going to say it? I have to be the one?
*big sigh*
That’s a horrible dress. I love her hair, I love her smile, I love her bump. But that dress has to go. There are so many pretty, flattering maternity dresses to choose from. Why this one?

I love her dress! She has an edgy style that only someone really sassy could pull off…

LOL- I didn’t think the dress was so bad, I just felt she could’ve used a more supportive bra. The hair is cute, but i dunno she used to have the most outrageously thick/beautiful hair. I don’t know what happened to it. Maybe its the cut? Shes a very attractive women, regardless.
