Ashanti, 43, Expecting Her 1st Baby With Boyfriend Nelly, 49


Ashanti and boyfriend Nelly are expecting first child together, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. The baby will be Ashanti’s first child, while Nelly, 49, shares daughter Chanelle, 29, and son Cornell Haynes III, 24, with ex Channetta Valentine.

Nelly also adopted two children from his stepsister Jaqueline Donahue who died in 2005 from cancer.

Last month, it was reported that Nelly and Ashanti were trying to start a family together. Some fans scoffed at the idea of two middle-aged people trying to start a family.

But others defended the couple, saying it’s never too late to have children.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, a fan on social media urged Nelly to impregnate Ashanti, and he responded, “I’m on it.”

Ashanti, 43, sparked pregnancy rumors over the weekend when she attended Nelly’s Black and White Ball in St. Louis. During the event, the “Only U” singer put her hand on her stomach while Nelly did the same. They both laughed out loud as if they were only joking.

Ashanti surprised Nelly with his “dream car,” a $150,000 vintage 1962 Chevy Impala, at his Halloween/birthday party in Fairburn, Georgia on Oct. 31. Nelly turned 49 on Nov. 2nd.

“Ashanti couldn’t wait to give Nelly the car for his birthday,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. “She had been planning this surprise for months and it was such a hard secret to keep. But seeing his reaction made it all worthwhile.”
