In recent developments, reports circulating online strongly suggest that Ashanti might be expecting her first child with Nelly. The rumors gained traction after Us Weekly cited a reliable source claiming, “Nelly and Ashanti are welcoming their first baby together.”
This potential addition to their family would mark Ashanti’s first child, while Nelly, already a parent to two adults from a previous relationship, would be expanding his fatherhood journey.
Despite the buzz surrounding this news, Ashanti’s camp has not responded to our request for comment as of now.
The speculation about Ashanti’s pregnancy intensified following a series of public displays of affection between the couple. Their most recent outing was at the “Country Grammar” rapper’s 11th Black and White Ball hosted at the Four Seasons Hotel, marking the event’s return to St. Louis after a seven-year hiatus.
During the event, Nelly and Ashanti, dressed to the nines, seemed to playfully fuel the pregnancy rumors. On stage, the superstar couple shared a lighthearted moment where Ashanti placed her hands on her stomach, prompting Nelly to do the same, resulting in shared laughter between the two.
