Congratulations are in order — for real this time — for singer Keyshia Cole and her boyfriend Niko Hale. The couple is expecting their first child together, announcing the news on Friday morning. Cole posted a picture of herself touching her growing baby bump and said that with Mother’s Day coming, she’s “ready for ALL THE Love and GREAT ENERGY.”

This will be the star’s second child, as she shares 9-year-old son DJ with estranged husband Daniel Gibson. Cole, 37, has been dating 23-year-old Niko Hale, a singer, since 2017.

Just last year the singer fooled everyone into thinking that she was expecting to teach people a lesson about body shaming.

“I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was #PREGGO,” she said last July. “Y’all need to stop body shaming me and sayin I’m PREGNANT EVERY OTHER DAY !!!! Like seriously, it hurts my feelings.”

Well this time, it’s true, and the singer is feeling everything but hurt feelings, and we’re happy for her.

She also joins a growing list of stars who are expecting right now. Hit the flip to see who else is bumpin’ around currently:
