40 years old, ‘Milkshake’ song fame singer Kelis has made her pregnancy public by posting an Instagram post. She is holding a positive pregnancy test in the picture. The caption for the post reads- “Chef Kelis – table for 5 please, We’re adding one more!”
Kelis married her husband Mike Mora in 2014 and this is their second child. They have a 4-year-old son named Shepard. The singer also has an eleven years old son named Knight from her previous marriage to rap icon Nas.
In her post Kelis sent out a message to Black mothers who like here are also pregnant amid the coronavirus pandemic. She wrote that there are many things to consider during this crazy time including the food consumed. We need to pay attention to how we live and love. She pointed out that they live in a country where Black women historically have had the highest maternal mortality rates so they need to take themselves without being apologetic about anything.
She further added that Black mothers have the rights, respect, resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy and together the statistics can be changed- one woman at a time.
Kelis has been nominated twice for Grammy awards. She had recently announced 20 newly rescheduled European dates for her anniversary tour ‘Kaleidoscope’ that had to be canceled due to the pandemic.
