After rekindling their relationship earlier this year, singers Ashanti and Nelly have sparked pregnancy rumours in a new loved-up video.
Ashanti, 43, attended Nelly’s star-studded Black and White Ball at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis on Sunday, 3 December, and she packed on the PDA with beau Nelly, 49, in front of guests at the bash.
In a clip obtained by TMZ, the couple could be seen standing on stage together and they looked to share a private joke. Ashanti then placed her hand on her stomach with Nelly copying the action, prompting the pair to both begin laughing.
A source has since claimed the pair are expecting their first baby, telling US Weekly: “Nelly and Ashanti are welcoming their first baby together."
If the speculation is correct, the baby will be Ashanti’s first child and Nelly's third. The 49 year old shares daughter Chanelle, 29, and son Cornell Haynes III, 24, with ex Channetta Valentine.
Fans gushed over the couple on social media as the pregnancy rumours swirled. One person wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: "OMGGG I'm so happy for them," while a second fan said: "Congratulations to Ashanti and Nelly."
"Ahe waited for the right time with the right one soooo happy for ashanti and nelly!" a third person wrote.
Ashanti and Nelly first dated on and off from 2003 until 2013 after meeting during a Grammy Awards press conference. In April 2023 – 10 years after they broke up – the pair sparked reconcilation rumours after being spotted holding hands at a boxing match in Las Vegas.
It wasn't until September that Nelly confirmed his romance with Ashanti. In a clip from Philo TV’s Boss Moves with Rasheeda, Nelly said: “Yeah, we cool again.” He went on to admit that the rekindled romance “surprised both of us though,” before adding: “It wasn’t anything that I don’t think was planned.”
In October, Ashanti and Nelly finally went Instagram official with their relationship, with Nelly gushing over his girlfriend on her birthday. The singer penned: ay. “One time for the birthday girl. Such a beautiful, an incredible person inside and out and one of the hardest working women. I know.. @ashanti Enjoy your day Ma you look awesome!!!! Happy Birthday Love ya!!!!"
The following month, Ashanti pulled out all of the stops for her beau's 49th birthday and presented him with a new car on his big day, leaving him in disbelief.
He shared a photo of the vehicle on social media and hinted at beginning a family with Ashanti. A fan said: "get her pregnant @nelly," to which he responded: "I'm on it."
