Back in December, former 3LW star Kiely Williams tied the knot with partner Brandon Cox. The nuptials came just a month after her former groupmate and fellow Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon said “I do” with Israel Houghton. Now it seems she’s taking a cue from her other former 3LW bandmate Naturi Naughton, who just gave birth in July. Less than a year after getting married in front of family and friends in a beautiful ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas, Williams has announced that she’s expecting a baby girl with Cox.

In an Instagram post featuring little pink baby shoes and Williams and Cox in the back sharing a kiss, the “Spectacular” singer shares the news that the couple’s child is due in March.
Cox and Williams reportedly dated for seven years before getting married at the end of 2016.
Months before the wedding, Williams joked about the conversations they have about race relations when she tests “BJ on racism” in their “mixed household.” Now they’ll have to have these types of conversations with their child in the future, and let’s hope they go well.
Congratulations to the happy couple on their growing family!
Before marriage and baby, we actually talked to Williams in 2012 about what she’d been doing since moving past her 3LW and Cheetah Girls days. At the time she was taking a break from music and developing other artists. She talked about how her former groups came together, who she still keeps in touch with, the backlash she received from doing her song “Spectacular” and what she hoped to do in the future. She definitely didn’t foresee being a wife and mom a few years later:
