She got it goin’ on, wha wha. Get it, “Big Momma Thang”?
Anywho, Lil Kim stepped out of the house for the first time since introducing her baby bump to the world when she met up with friends back in March. She snapped pics with friend Big Fend, who is reportedly the CEO of Dirty Money Records, and he was super excited about seeing her with child. As you can see, there was a lot of belly rubbing going on, and Fend captioned the pictures, “Im gonna be a uncle,” and “Kim Let Us Rub The Baby … Yaaaaaaa Excited For Her HOPE ITS LIL BIGGIE IN THERE.” No comment on that last statement though…
Of course, Kim announced her pregnancy on Feb 12 during The Blondes Fashion Week show, and at the time, she claimed she was only a few months along.
“I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
The 39-year-old mommy-to-be is said to be pregnant with the child of her on-again, off-again boyfriend, rapper Mr. Papers. At least, that’s what he was telling folks soon after Kim’s announcement:
“We together, brotha. Everything is good. You know how they like to talk. Ain’t nothing. We together, that’s my wife, and that’s my baby.”
Not sure when Lil Kim is set to give birth, but she looks pretty excited about motherhood, and she’s glowing. Congrats again!
Many celebrities make a trip to the plastic surgeon to have work done at some point in their career. However, sometimes these celebs get a little too carried away trying to enhance one part of their body, like “the girls.”
Naya Rivera currently stars on the hit show “Glee” and is engaged to rapper Big Sean but last week she made headlines for a totally different reason. Pictures surfaced of the “Glee” star with her breasts remarkably bigger than they were before. However, Rivera has denied getting a boob job even though it appears she’s gone up at least two cup sizes.
“I Don’t Regret Anything In My Life:” Lil’ Kim Opens Up About Surprise Pregnancy And 2005 Incarceration
Back in February fans were shocked to learn that Brooklyn rapper Lil’ Kim is pregnant with her first child. Kim recently opened up about working through her pregnancy and how the baby pretty much dictates when she works and when she doesn’t.
“The baby dictates what days I go to the studio. I did work in the earlier stages of [my pregnancy]. My belly is pretty out there right now, but, I’m still working,” the 39-year-old mom-to-be told Billboard.
Kim also briefly discussed being incarcerated back in 2005.
“I don’t regret anything in my life. There’s things I wish I would have done differently but I don’t regret how I handled the situation. I don’t regret it. Being who I am, is who I am. At the end of the day, my character is my character. I’m not going to change that for nobody.”
As for the advice she received from the Notorious B.I.G.:
“B.I.G. was sure I was good long-term. He wanted me to be the top b**** in the game. He named me Queen B***h. In the studio he’d show me things about rapping and music. He knew that I idolized him and he’s who I wanted to be. I would watch him in awe. He was so amazing to me to watch: His energy and they way he moved as a big guy. He was very smart; His mom being a teacher probably had something to do with that. B.I.G. is B.I.G.”

Okay so what do you get when you mix Lil’ Kim, Yandy Smith and a brand spankin’ new health care law together? The #GetCovered tour! The expectant rapper and the Love & Hip Hop reality TV star — plus a slew of other celebrities — are taking the Affordable Care Act on the road tomorrow in New York City to get the public psyched to get covered by Obamacare. Schedule provided here.
For Yandy, the #GetCovered tour is quite personal — she stresses that Obamacare helped provide Amir, her son, cost-effective health insurance for his kidney complications:
“It’s no secret that my son was born with a preexisting kidney condition and as a mom, my first priority was to put his health first” she said in a press statement. “However, when I discovered my health insurance had been cancelled, I immediately went into panic mode to find the best solution. The Affordable Care Act provided my family and, most importantly my son, affordable coverage we could count on.”
Joining the Lil Kim and Yandy Smith, the headliners for the tour are Dipset’s Juelz Santana, Basketball Wives’ Jennifer Williams, GlobalGrind’s president Michael Skolnik, WEEN’s co-founder and CEO Valeisha Butterfield Jones, and more! It’s a star-studded one-day tour to encourage the uninsured to shake off the passivity and #GetCovered by Obamacare.
This united day of celebrities and community leaders comes on the heels of the announcement of another delay on the Obamacare deadline. All uninsured Americans were once required to be signed up by March 31. Now the POTUS has extended that to mid-April because some Americans “are not educated on how to use the Internet,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
On Wednesday, at a press conference defending the Obamacare extension, Reid added: “There are some people who are not like my grandchildren who can handle everything so easily on the Internet, and these people need a little extra time.”
Speaker of the House John Boehner was unsurprisingly peeved about the delay. “What the hell is this, a joke?” he asked. Reid retorted that he didn’t hear a peep out of Boehner when former President Bush asked for a similar extension for Medicare Part D. “It really does appear extremely disingenuous that they oppose anything that’s good about Obamacare, anything good about anything this administration tries to do,” Reid added.
If you’re sans insurance, and you haven’t enrolled yet, this is great news! Had you failed to enroll in time, you’d either pay a $95 penalty or get one percent snatched right out of your income — whichever is higher. In order to qualify for an extension, however, you’ll have to check a blue box on HealthCare.gov to show that you at least tried to purchase Obamacare on the marketplace before the deadline.
“Although no one will be asked why they need an extension, the idea is to help people whose applications have been held up because of the Web site’s technical problems, or who haven’t been able to get the system to calculate subsidies to help them pay for coverage,” The Washington Post wrote.
As of March 17, about five million people have signed up for Obamacare – just one million short of their six million goal. (Update: The White House has just announced that they’ve reached the six million mark with four days to go until the deadline.) That’s why the #GetCovered tour is being organized on Friday, March 28 to get the uninsured insured! The event will kick off in New York City going through Brooklyn, Harlem, and the Bronx.
Following the tour, there will be a #GetCovered enrollment par-tay at 5pm ’til midnight. Everyone will have an opportunity to enroll on site. You won’t want to miss it!
In this day and age where a celebrity’s every move can be well chronicled, somehow these celebrities managed to surprise us all by popping up pregnant out of nowhere. No announcement, no save the date, just them, the red carpet, and a baby bump.
Lil Kim reigned as the Queen Bee of rap in the late 90’s. Although her career took a nosedive following a jail stint for lying under oath, the diminutive star still managed to release new music. She may not be the hottest female rapper around anymore but the Brooklyn emcee will have a new title to her name. Lil Kim popped up at an event during New York Fashion Week earlier this month with a big bun in the oven. She’s a few months into the pregnancy and her boyfriend and daddy to be Mr. Papers revealed she is having a baby boy.

Lil Kim is about to be a mother, and the fella claiming to be responsible for this new blessing in the Queen Bee’s life is a rapper named Mr. Papers. From what we can see so far, he’s clearly not as shy as she is about revealing the details of her pregnancy. We told you late last week that after news came out that Kim was pregnant (and she looks quite far along even though she said she was just a few months in), her on-again, off-again love, Mr. Papers, took to social media to retweet messages of congratulations and positivity from friends, and to basically say that he’s the daddy, even though Kim hasn’t said yes or no to any of this. He even went as far as to speak to the folks of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show recently to confirm that he’s the daddy (“They talkin’ about me, I heard, I heard…That’s my baby”), and to reveal a bit about himself and his child on the way with the petite lyricist (AND to also promote a new single…).
When asked what names he and Kim were considering (his real name is Peoples Hernandez by the way), he said that they didn’t have one particular name ready to go, but even if they did, they wouldn’t speak on that so soon. “I don’t know yet I don’t really want to give that to the world yet, you know what I mean? But we gon’ let ya’ll know soon. We not gon’ hold it for too long.”
He also revealed what we told you last week–this is not his first child. He’s already the father of an adorable little boy you can catch on his Instagram from time to time. “That’s my little prince! I got a little son. He’s four years old, and his name is Jeremiah.”
And he also touched on whether or not he still has a relationship with Lil Kim. He says that they’re a couple and he considers her more than just a girlfriend. “We together, brotha. Everything is good. You know how they like to talk. Ain’t nothing. We together, that’s my wife, and that’s my baby.”
He even spilled some beans on a possible birth date and gender, saying that the little one will be repping for the geminis out there, possibly making an entrance into this world in late May, or early June, meaning Kim is quite far along.
“He gon’ be a gemini though, know what I mean? But I don’t want to give you all that information, you know? But he gon’ be a gemini.”
Glad to see he’s so enthusiastic about fatherhood with Kim, but I would love to hear what she has to say about him sharing all this information on her behalf. We’ll have to wait and see. But check out his interview with the folks of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show below and share your thoughts.
It’s the news that came out of left field and shocked everyone: Lil Kim is pregnant! The 39-year-old, who will turn 40 in July, is expecting her first child. Now everyone is wondering who the father is. One fella, her most recent love, Mr. Papers, has stepped forward to say that it’s him on social media. He has retweeted congrats from friends and industry folks, retweeting stories about the pregnancy and even saying, “I heard everybody looking for me ?????????????????” earlier today. The two started dating in spring 2012, and it’s unclear if they’re back together after word was that they split late last year. Kim hasn’t let folks know whose baby she’s having, and dude could be looking for attention (he did Tweet out his email…), but we thought we’d give you a glimpse into the world of her on-again, off -again boo, Mr. Papers.
Rapper Kimberly “Lil’ Kim” Jones shocked the world when she showed up at The Blonds Fashion Week after-party in New York City sporting a huge baby bump last night! Yes, that’s right, the 39-year-old self-proclaimed Queen B is pregnant with her first child!
“I’m so excited! I’m a few months along, I can’t wait to be a mom!” she excitedly told Us Weekly.
The happy mom-to-be also took the stage to perform at the event and announced her über obvious pregnancy to partygoers.
“I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!” she reportedly said as she rubbed her belly.
During her performance, she also paid tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G.
“It’s also going to be Biggie’s birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we [as she points to her belly] love you.”
Though she’s expecting her little bundle in just a few short months, the Brooklyn native says that she doesn’t have plans of transforming her image or slowing down anytime soon.
“I’m still going to work,” she continued. “I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
So far there’s been no word on who the father of her unborn child is, as Kim is opting to keep his identity private at this time. This is major news that hardly anyone saw coming.
“I miss the old Kim” is a statement frequently made by 90s hip-hop lovers and most times, they aren’t just referring to her catchy hooks and feisty punchlines. Anyone with eyes assumed that she has had a bit of cosmetic work done on her face. Some would say that she’s barely recognizable. It’s unclear whether or not she has regrets about her drastic change in appearance, but it does seem to be a rather touchy subject for the Brooklyn rapper.
“No disrespect, no shade, but I’m not going to answer [that] question,” Kim when asked about the media’s fixation on her face during an interview wit Rolling Out. “I think that’s kinda corny. I don’t know how to answer that. That’s not a question I would answer,” she continued.
The pint-sized powerhouse added that the only thing she will say in response to questions about her appearance is that she’s “blessed.”
“I’m blessed. That’s all I can say. And I am who I am.”
What she was willing to discuss, however, was her current thoughts about finding love and possibly getting married.
“If it happens, it happens,” said Kim. “I’m not going to fight it. At the end of the day, I feel like I can have both.”
Do you think people should lay off discussing Kim’s appearance?
Growing up we did not have a Miley who twerked or a Nicki Minaj who dropped bars between her numerous alter egos. We had Kim, who will forever reign as the original Queen Bee. Lil Kim, as we affectionately remember her, took hip hop by storm with her ear-phone-wearing-when-parents-are-around lyrics and most importantly, frank sexuality. Never once did she apologize for her identity and in a recent interview with Rolling Out Magazine, Lil Kim reminds us she was always a star in her own lane therefore, igniting the blueprint many female MCs use today. Check out the highlights from her Q&A:
How she balances being an artist and businesswoman
“That’s something I was born with. When you’re born with talent, you also have the talent to conduct your own business. With me, that’s how it is. I just know how to turn it on and off. I just know what I want from myself. In my field, I am the blueprint of what I do. I’ve always starred in my own lane.”
What Her Legacy Means To Her
“No disrespect, no shade, but I’m not going to answer [that] question because I think that’s kinda corny,” she says adamantly. “I don’t know how to answer that.”
What she regrets about her career
“I’m pretty sure everybody in the industry — and in life, period — has things that they feel like they would do over, but I don’t really regret much in my life. There are certain things that I would do over — and certain things that I would do differently. [But] the things that I go through and the things that I’ve gone through have become a major part of who I am today.”
Fears about becoming stagnant in the music industry
“I’m a real artist. I [have] basically been in the game for a minute, [so it’s] where I feel like it’s time to go to [another] level in my career. I think every artist has that moment — if you’re a real artist. I care about what I do, so in different things [you’re] always concerned about your next step — but that doesn’t stop me from taking it.”
Her plans on creating new music
“I just think that my fans — not even just my fans, but even potentially new fans — are ready to hear some new Lil’ Kim music and everyone knows that … I put a lot of my reality into my music [that] people can identify with. People are ready to hear real rap — real s— coming from a female. Because I’ve always been different, no matter what. My music has always been very sexual and very pro-women. Now I get to do that through my new artists. I have my label coming out, which makes me very driven. “
If We will ever see her on reality television
“I never say ‘never,’ but I don’t look at television shows or reality shows and say ‘I want to be on this show,’ Not really. I’m more so into just watching them for entertainment purposes.”
Her relationship with Diddy
“Puffy called me one day and he tracked me down through some people I knew,” she says of how this latest endeavor together came about. “[He said] ‘No matter what, you’re going to always be my sister.’ We always go through things like that. At the end of the day, we’re tied to each other through B.I.G.’s estate and B.I.G.’s iconic, historic legacy.”
