Lil' Kim is pregnant with her first child and while she is very excited about the notion of becoming a mom, she still won't divulge who the baby's father is. The 39-year-old announced her pregnancy Wednesday night at The Blonds Fashion Week after-party hosted by Mac in New York City. She even rubbed her baby bump as she made her announcement.

"I'm so excited! I'm a few months along, I can't wait to be a mom!" she said. "I'm a mom, but I can turn it up a little!"

It's uncertain exactly how far along Lil' Kim is, but it's more than obvious she's pregnant. She plans to keep working and has no intentions of slowing down during her pregnancy--at least not yet.

"I'm still going to work," she says. "I'm still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!"

Despite her pregnancy, it definitely sounds like the after party Lil' Kim attended when she made her big announcement was quite the high profile--and maybe even crazy--event.

Lil' Kim made certain to honor the late Notorious B.I.G. at the after party on Wednesday night.

"It's also going to be Biggie's birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we [as she points to her belly] love you," she told the crowd before breaking into her performance of Lighters Up.

How do you think Lil' Kim will take to motherhood? Her life hasn't exactly seemed conducive to raising a family, but people grow up and change and their morals and values can shift. Hopefully that's the case here and the rapper, her unnamed baby daddy, and their baby will enjoy a happy and healthy life together.
