Oakland songstress Kehlani recently surprised fans with her pregnancy announcement, revealing her baby bump for the first time on Instagram.
In a lengthy note sharing the news with fans, the “Crazy” singer confirms that she’s 4 months along and couldn’t be happier becoming a new mom. She also thanked her child’s father without revealing his identity.
“If you know me, you know i’ve dreamt about motherhood since i was very young. when asked what my goals are, it’s always the idea of a big healthy happy family & whatever comes along is a plus . i am so honored to be given this gift by spirit, creator, and an amazing partner whom i trust with my body and life after a very traumatic experience that had me afraid of interacting with men as a whole for what i was sure would be forever (i’ll tell that story when it’s time).
“I knew sharing something so personal and precious could bring stress into my world but there isn’t a word anyone would say my way that could take away from this.”
Kehlani went on to share she’s having a baby girl.
“Dearest little girl, i am so proud to be your mommy. i am so proud to have received you. i cannot wait to meet you, i know you will be 50,000 times more special than i can even imagine at this moment.”
