Wanna bumble with the Bee? Then you have to be royalty yourself, so it’s fitting that rapper Lil Kim named her Royal Reign. The baby girl was born at 9:58 a.m. on Monday, June 9.
Born at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, Royal weighed in at 6 lbs., 5 oz., and measured 19½ inches long.
Lil’ Kim, 39, debuted her bump in February 2014, when she attended The Blonds Fashion Week after-party rocking a black form-fitting gown and cradling her belly. She told the audience, “I’m a mom but I can turn it up a little!” Just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean Kim is going to slow down any. “”I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast,” the emcee told Us Weekly.
The baby’s father is Mr. Papers. Rapper Papers spent all day February 13, 2014 retweeting fans’ congratulations on Kim’s pregnancy and then finally tweeted an Instagram photo of himself with the message, “I hear everybody’s looking for me??”
In April, the mom-to-be sent out a ‘Save the Date’ card for her royal baby bash – and announced she was expecting a girl.
The following month, she hinted at her daughter’s regal name while Tweeting about her baby shower, which was thrown by fabulous event planner David Tutera. “Can’t wait for my NYC Royal Baby Shower,” she wrote on May 8, adding the hashtags #royalbabyshower and #queenbeelilbee.
