Congratulations to Sexyy Red, who is pregnant with her second child! The “Pound Town” rapper seemingly announced the news through a series of Instagram photos on Saturday (Oct. 14), showcasing her growing belly. In one snapshot, her “Rich Baby Daddy” collaborator, SZA is seen beside her, showing support and placing a hand gently below her stomach.
Accompanying the photos, Red pondered, “Team boy or Team girl.” She later shared another post, humorously captioned “Fat Ma,” as she indulged in some food.
Fans of the SkeeYee hitmaker were caught off guard by the revelation, with some expressing disbelief. “Is this some type of sick Joke?” One person commented. Another added, “Still don’t believe it, I need the ultrasound.”
Another person chimed in, “She gotta be trolling, ain’t no way [crying emoji].”
The following day, she confirmed the news with more post on her Instagram stories, revealing she’s been concealing the baby bump by sucking in her stomach.
“I was pregnant [as f-ck] on here [trying to] suck my belly in… I got tired of faking,” she captioned a recent photo of her. She also wrote “I couldn’t breave” alongside a photo of her at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
This will be Sexxy Red’s second child; she already has a four-year-old son, and his father is presently serving time in jail.
The pregnancy news comes about a week after a sexually explicit footage of her was accidentally leaked to her Instagram stories. In the clip, the St. Louis native is seen engaging in intercourse, and people began to question if she leaked the footage to distract from her earlier comments about Donald Trump, where she claimed the former U.S president is ‘loved in the hood.’
Sexxy Red addressed the incident, stating, “I’m so heartbroken, anybody that knows me knows I wouldn’t do no goofy sh-t like that.”
