Kelis confirms she’s given birth to third child after ‘intense’ labour

Kelis has given birth to her third child just a month after announcing her pregnancy, she confirmed on Instagram.

The Milkshake star, 41, took to Instagram to share the news with her followers, revealing: ‘Hey, so I’ve been kind of MIA, well very MIA, but for a really good reason cause I just had my baby.

‘And it was intense. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I’m generally a really private person with my personal life, but I wanted to kind of bring my fam in to sort of talk about all of these women’s things we go through that no one really tells us about.

‘So I had my baby a week ago and I had a girl by the way – so very excited about that – it’s my first girl!’

She showed off her post-baby body later in the video, telling her followers she wanted to share her ‘process’ for healthy and working out following the birth. 

Captioning the video, Kelis added: ‘I had a baby!!!!!!! I’m going to bring you guys with me as much as I can on my plan to get back to myself!

‘I want to Talk about all the things women go through often silently and how intense the process can be to regain the parts of your old self we value the most while embracing all that is new and beautiful.’

The singer already has 11-year-old son Knight from her first marriage to rapper Nas, as well as four-year-old son Shepherd and the new baby from her husband Mike Mora. 

Kelis only announced her pregnancy at the start of August, surprising fans with a picture of her holding up a positive pregnancy test. 

She wrote at the time: ‘Chef Kelis – table for 5 please. We’re adding one more! Happy to announce that I’m expecting and I’m partnering with @firstresponsepregnancy, as they are committed to supporting healthy, equitable pregnancy journeys and understand the importance of a nurturing environment for black women and mothers.’ 

Kelis continued: ‘As a Black mother, there are so many things to consider during this time in your life, especially during the crazy times that we live in — from what we eat, to how we live and love. 

‘This is the time we must take for ourselves without apologies, especially when we still live in a country where Black women historically have had the highest maternal mortality rates.

‘So for me, self-care has become paramount, particularly in the beginning stages. Knowing your body and what it needs, being able to be still and quiet enough to hear what it tells you.’
