Later this year, Lil’ Kim is about to have a lil’ baby of her own.

The rapper confirmed to “Us Weekly” that she is pregnant with her first child, and she prefers to keep the father’s name a secret at this time.

“I’m so excited!” she told “Us.” “I can’t wait to be a mom.”

Kim, who has mostly stayed out of the limelight in recent years, added that she still plans to work on new material.

“I’m going to work,” she said. “I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast.”

The performer first shared the news during Fashion Week in New York on Wednesday night, taking the stage at an after-party to show off her baby belly.

The singer, who is known for her collaboration with Christina Aguilera, Pink and Mya on “Lady Marmalade,” was released from jail in 2006 after nearly a year in prison after being convicted for lying about a shootout at a Manhattan radio station a few years before that.
