For some time now, fans suspected the Grammy Award-nominated artist was pregnant, and clearly their suspicions turned out to be true.

Cole and Khale have publicly been dating since early 2018 and appear to be madly in love. Their relationship formed nearly a year after she filed for divorce with estranged husband and former NBA player Daniel “Booby” Gibson, whom she shares 9-year-old son Daniel Gibson Jr. with. Their divorce has yet to officially be finalized.

Last year Cole actually announced she was pregnant, but admitted moments later in a now-deleted Instagram post that she lied due to the public body-shaming her.

For now, fans of the singer and her boyfriend couldn’t be happier that the two are expecting.

“I’m so happy for you this smile is the most beautiful thing you looking gooddddddd 😍.”

“Awwwwh that baby gonna be so cute☺️ Congratulations!!!!👶🏽@keyshiacole @nikokhale.”

“Omg 😮 🎉 😍 Congratulations 🎈 praying nothing but the best for you ❤️.”
