Kelis is now a mom of three. On Friday, September 11th, the singer announced the arrival of her daughter, whom she gave birth to a week prior, in an Instagram post. "She's just the sweetest little thing," she wrote in the caption, alongside the cutest pic of her holding her new baby girl's hand.

The "Milkshake" singer shares her new baby and her 4-year-old son, Shepherd, with her husband, Mike Mora. Kelis also has an 11-year-old son named Knight, whom she shares with ex-husband Nas.

She partnered with First Response in her pregnancy announcement to promote self-care, especially being a Black mother.

"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," she wrote in August. "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."

Kelis also reached out to her fans and followers in a September 12th video in which she shared how she plans to "bounce back" from her pregnancy by simply eating right, noting that she won't be able to work out for at least 12 weeks.

"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, bring you guys in, to sort of talk about all of these women’s things we go through that no one really tells us about," Kelis added.

She also said in her video, "I had a girl by the way, so I'm very excited about that, it's my first girl."

Kelis has yet to drop the name of baby number three, so we'll be waiting anxiously to hear what she and Mora plan to call their daughter. You can follow along with Kelis's post-pregnancy health journey over on her Instagram.
