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.

Happy Valentines Day from Rocko, Romelo and Laiyah!
Singer Monica just posted Valentine’s Day pics of her adorable family on Instagram and we have to say this will probably be the cutest thing you see all day. Writing, “God is Love is They are ❤My Everything Happy Valentines Day from Rocko❤ Romelo ❤and Laiyah❤,” Monica posted the picture above, before her hubby had a chance to do the same thing with this precious mother-daughter shot:
The 28-year-old San Antonio Spurs player wrote “Happy Birthday to my loves!” as his caption and Monica reposted it, on her IG account, writing:
We Love you too…#MommyAndLaiyah She is such a girly girl already she keeps one hand up as if she’s holding a purse#LordHelpMe
Of course it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without some grown folk’s loving, but Monica already took care of that, posting this throwback pic of her and Shannon which is oh so appropriate on the day the world celebrates love, writing. Monica wrote: “Everyday is Valentines Day over this way❤ #FlashBackFriday #MyDailyCrush #MyHusband #GodsLoveBlessedOurLove @l_s_brown.”
OK girl, we hear you! Aren’t they the cutest?
Sometimes you know within a matter of minutes if the person you just met is your soulmate and partner for life. That appears to be the case with these celebrity couples who wasted no time moving from dating to engaged within a matter of months or even days.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera
Rapper Big Sean had a longtime girlfriend back when he signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Even though she was there for much of his success, the couple parted ways in 2013 and soon after that the Detroit rapper was in the arms of another woman. Big Sean met actress Naya Rivera on Twitter first before taking their romance offline and into the real world. After dating for just six months, Sean popped the question this past October.

Sweet Love: Monica And Shannon Brown Celebrate Three Years Of Wedded Bliss With Vow Renewal Ceremony
A couple of months ago Monica and Shannon Brown welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. Now, they have one more thing to celebrate: their third wedding anniversary. The “Love All Over Me” singer shared a video to her Instagram page yesterday of herself and hubby, Shannon, exchanging rings in a beautiful, yet romantically simple vow renewal ceremony.
“Happy❤️Anniversary❤️SB❤️I am often times in awe of you!!! I fell in love with you the second our eyes met & everyday since I’ve thanked God for allowing me to experience a love that is of him,” Monica sweetly wrote.
“You have always put the children & I above all else & you constantly remind us we are not alone,” she continued.
“We love you endlessly @shannonbrown26 each day my heart smiles watching you effortlessly be a great father & husband❤️I Love You #ForeverAlways 11-22-10 #Wedding1 #NoOneKnewWeSaidIDO.”
They’re such a lovely couple. Back in 2011, the then-newlyweds told ESSENCE that they make their love work by never allowing their busy schedules to compromise family time.
“We’re together a lot because I think you make time for the things that are important and our marriage is important to us. So we make time, all the time. At a video shoot Shannon and I go in my dressing room and order the food we want and just spend time talking to each other and getting to know each other even more. Every day is a new day, so it never stops. You never stop learning each other. Sometimes the best moments are just the quiet ones,” Monica said.
Check out their sweet exchange below.

Isn’t this the most adorable mother-daughter preciousness you’ve seen in a long time?
Well you should thank Monica for it because she’s the proud mother behind this photo. Taking to Instagram, the singer uploaded her very first pic with her baby girl, writing:
Of course this isn’t the first time we’ve seen little Laiyah Brown. On September 3, the day she was born, proud papa Shannon Brown posted a pic of him with his baby girl, saying: I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!! And not too long after that, Monica’s girl Tiny, posted her own Instagram pic with the little cutie who happens to be her god-daughter.
Laiyah is Monica and Shannon’s first child together and Monica’s third. She has two boys with rapper Rocco and they seem to be doing a great job as big brothers. In another pic of Monica’s she showed her sons, Rocko and Romelo, with Laiyah and wrote: “Everyday I wake up I feel inspired, encouraged & motivated to be the best person I can be because of these three. My heart beats for My Children.. #RockoLaiyahRomelo #OutsideEnjoyingNature”
Looks like all is well in the Brown household. Congrats again!
Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris just released a picture of her god-daughter, Laiyah, who happens to be the baby girl of singer Monica and NBA player Shannon Brown. When Laiyah was born, Brown tweeted:
I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!! http://t.co/75mbNQ7bh9
— Shannon Brown (@ShannonBrown) September 6, 2013
Mommy Monica hasn’t tweeted or uploaded any pictures of Laiyah but we are sure she is adjusting to being a mother of three now!
Congratulations to Monica and Shannon, again! We’re excited to see more pictures of Laiyah!
It’s a girl!
OK we already knew that from the pink pony theme at Monica’s baby shower a couple of weeks ago. The real news is the baby girl is here!
Vanessa Bryant broke the news on Instagram late last night with the message below.
Proud father Shannon Brown also shared the news on his own Instagram page with the adorable photo below, saying: I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!!
So far, Monica hasn’t tweeted or Instgramed any details yet, but we imagine she’s busy adjusting to life as a mother of three now, with her other two boys Rocko and Romelo.
Congrats to the couple! We can’t wait to see this cutie’s face.
On Saturday, Monica and her NBA baller husband Shannon Brown hosted a baby shower for their new baby girl. The shower, which took place at Jermaine Dupri’s Atlanta home, had a pink and ponies theme and it was pretty adorable.
On the very pink invitations Monica sent out she said no children and no cameras. But it’s hard to stop a grown man from snapping at pic or two in his own house…or posting a professional one on his Instagram. So we have a little sneak peek for you all today.
And it seems like it’s already been confirmed by Monica’s Instagram bio that the little girl’s name will be Laiyah. Allegedly, Tiny gave the couple the name. Little Laiyah will be the second child for Shannon, third for Monica and the first girl for both of them.
Check out some adorable pics from Monica’s baby shower on the following pages.
If what we’re hearing is true, Monica might be a really excited woman!
We know that when women are pregnant, one of the things they wish for the most is a healthy baby. But when you’ve got a house full of boys like singer Monica, it would be nice if your next bundle of joy could be a little girl.
Luckily for her, that looks to be the case! Sandra Rose is reporting that sources have told her that Monica and husband Shannon Brown are expecting the first little this fall. Monica has two sons from a previous relationship and Shannon has a son from his previous relationship. This little lady will sure be surrounded by a lot of security guards (better known as her brothers and her dad)!
Rose also revealed that Baby Brown’s name will be Laiyah and the couple will be having a baby shower later this month.
Looks like one of Monica and Shannon’s friends just couldn’t keep their mouths closed! But we know all of Monica’s fans are excited because ever since we found out the Browns were expecting, the constant sentiment was, “Congrats, I hope she has a girl this time!”
How exciting for the entire family!
While we’ve shown off different celebrities showcasing their abs and taut frames for the camera for swimsuit season, we thought we’d share this very cute photo of singer Monica showing off her own summertime preggers body and adorable ruffled one-piece as she enjoys the sun with child. The singer, who is married to Phoenix Sun baller Shannon Brown, is about six months pregnant with her third child, but her first with Brown (his second, and they both have all boys). Looking very pregnant but very cute, she posed in her swimsuit in the pool and smiled super wide for the camera. Monica captioned the photo saying, “#WeAlmostThere #IMustSwimBeforeSummerEnds LOL, not gonna give up!! Baby B & I will be at it again tomorrow!!”
For Father’s Day this past Sunday, Monica sent a message out to her husband via Instagram where she thanked him for being a nurturing and supportive partner, as well as father to her children (and child on the way):
“Happy Fathers Day to my amazing husband @shannonbrown26 U love, nurture, support & stand by me. As we await the arrival of our child I thank u for the nights that you’ve held me, rubbed my aching back, been a listening ear, made dr’s visits and comforted me.. Our child is blessed to have a Father like U, Happy Father’s Day”
So happy for the singer and her handsome hubby. Doesn’t she look great!?
