The rapper's publicist C.J. Carter confirmed the news Thursday, a day after pictures of Kim's baby bump began to circulate via social media following her appearance at New York Fashion Week.
The 39-year-old "Lady Marmalade" singer's assistant Noel Perez says Kim is about five months along and due in May. No other details were available.
Lil' Kim, whose real name is Kim Jones, debuted her baby bump in a tight dress at The Blonds fashion show.
