Featuring a cake topped with a gold crown, pink roses and crown-decorated donuts, Jessica and Shawne clearly spared no expense for their baby. The parents wore matching white outfits, with Jessica clad in a satin, spaghetti strap dress that showed off her growing bump.

Earlier this month, fans were looking for her pregnant belly. Though Jessica and Shawne took a pregnancy test on a recent episode of LHHATL, that footage was filmed some time last year (2017). This means that the future mom should be about seven months into her pregnancy. However, her various social media profiles didn’t reflect that of a mommy-to-be. With no baby bump in sight, fans had begun to wonder if she was still pregnant. After these photos though, there’s no doubt.

The star, who is pregnant with her first child, posted shots from a sweet maternity shoot earlier today (April 9). Wearing nude undergarments, the “Hustle” artist is covered in flowers whole holding her belly.

“I think I’m tearing up!# I’m so happy for her!She is beautiful!#CONGRATS,” wrote a fan on Instagram. “CONGRATS SWEETIE!! God bless you and that bundle of joy,” commented another.

One Instagram user posted, “Bad b**ch got a luhh queen coming.”

“Nauseous” and “Tired”

After weeks of being “nauseous” and “tired,” the rapper said she began to have a “good feeling” she was carrying a baby. So, she took an at-home pregnancy test, sitting on the sofa with Shawne as she waited for the results.

“This test needs to hurry up because I need to know right now,” she told her fiance. “I think I am. I feel just bloated, I’m just tired, my br**sts just feel sore.”

While the couple waited, they talked about Jessica’s “complicated” relationship with her mother. After revealing that her mom sent her to a juvenile detention center at a young age and “judged” her “like crazy” when she was dancing, the “Hustle” artist said that she didn’t plan on speaking to her mother.

“When it come to my mama… It’s just me dealing with her and her attitude,” Jessica said. “My mama is not finna stress me out, especially if I’m pregnant. But it’s like… I know at this point and time, if I am pregnant, I’m gonna need my mother.”

In response, Shawne joked that the mommy-to-be will need a “village” during her pregnancy. In combination with carrying and preparing for a child, the 32-year-old will be planning a wedding while working on her music career.

Gone

Shawne, who “was a first round pick when he joined the league back in 2016” but hasn’t played a professional game in nearly two years, will be busy working throughout the bulk of her pregnancy. According to Jessica, “He had some stumbles, but now he’s making a run to get back in the game.”

“You finna be gone. I’m finna have to finish planning the wedding by myself. I got a lotta music I gotta put out, I got a lotta videos I gotta put out. It’s a lot,” she vented. Before the star could stress too much, Shawne checked the at-home test, only to find that the two are indeed expecting a new edition to their family. “I knew it,” Jessica said smiling, going in to hug her Shawne.
