Ashanti, 43, is pregnant and expecting her first baby with her rapper boyfriend Nelly, 49.

The ‘Foolish’ songstress first sparked pregnancy rumours over the weekend after she was spotted putting her hand on her stomach when she attended Nelly’s Black and White Ball in St. Louis, while her partner did the same, hinting at a little one on the way.

A source has now told Us Weekly: “Nelly and Ashanti are welcoming their first baby together.”

This comes just months after Nelly and Ashanti rekindled their romance ten years after ending their decade-long relationship.

The artists first met at the Grammys in 2003 but called things off in 2013.

However, twenty years on from their initial romance, they got back together and have been more loved-up than ever in recent months.

It’s unclear how far along Ashanti is in her pregnancy at this stage as she’s yet to officially confirm that she’s expecting.

This will be the ‘Only U’ singer’s first baby, while Nelly shares two children with ex Channetta Valentine.

The ‘Just A Dream’ star has a 29-year-old daughter named Chanelle and 24-year-old son named Cornell Haynes III.

Congrats to Ashanti and Nelly!
