Kelis and husband Mike Mora recently welcomed their second child together.
In an Instagram video posted last week, the “Milkshake” singer revealed she delivered a baby girl the week before.
In addition to her and Mora’s 4½-year-old son Shepherd, the musician also shares 11-year-old son Knight with ex-husband Nas.
“Hey, so I’ve been kind of MIA, very MIA, but for a really good reason ’cause I just had my baby!” the 41-year-old revealed.
While noting that her labor was “intense,” Kelis told her fans, “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I’m generally a really private person with my personal life, but I wanted to kind of bring my fam in, bring you guys in.”
Though she “can’t work out for the next six weeks,” she plans on losing her baby weight through nutrition.
“I went from 236, my baby girl was a big baby, so I’ve got about 50 to 60 pounds left to lose to get back into my high-waisted jeans,” she said, adding, “It’s been a really intense week, but I made it and [my] baby’s good."
Over the weekend, Kelis gave fans a glimpse of her bundle of joy, who affectionally holds her mother’s thumb.
“She’s just the sweetest little thing,” Kelis captioned the sweet snap.
The songstress previously revealed her third pregnancy in August in an ad with First Response.
“Chef Kelis - table for 5 please. We’re adding one more!” she wrote at the time.
Congratulations to Kelis and Mike on their new addition!
