Keyshia Cole is expecting her second child, and first with boyfriend Niko Khale.

The 37-year-old singer announced her pregnancy on Instagram Friday (May 3), captioning a photo of her burgeoning belly: "Went to Catalina island Last weekend. Had such a good time!!!! Surrounded by Loooooooooove❤️ Just enjoying good times and GREAT VIBES 🤰🏽 I have a few shows coming up next weekend, DETROIT, MIAMI, 🥰 #MOTHERSDay is coming 🤔 I’m ready for ALL THE Love and GREAT ENERGY 🥰."

While Keyshia's nonchalant post made no mention of her pregnancy, in the photo Keyshia is shown with her hand on her protruding baby bump. The post also included two other pictures that showed her smiling and laughing with Niko.

The R&B singer and the 23-year-old rapper's new addition will join Keyshia's nine-year-old son Daniel, who she shares with her ex-husband DanielBoobieGibson. Keyshia and the basketball player wed in May 2011. While they split less than three years later in March 2014, the former couple's divorce has yet to be finalized.

As fans know, Keyshia's pregnancy announcement comes nearly a year after she trolled fans saying she was expecting in an attempt to hit back at critics who have body-shamed her. "I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was ##Preggo !!!!," she wrote on Instagram in July. ""Buuuuuuut y’all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I’m PREGNANT EVERY OTHER DAY."

Keyshia and Niko have been dating since 2018.
