Congrats to Lil Kim: The 39-year-old rapper is pregnant with her first child.

Lil Kim showed up at New York Fashion Week in a figure-hugging gown that prominently confirmed the existence of Even Li’ler Kim. As to her baby’s father though, she’s keeping mum for now.

Whether she’s a single mom or just keeping her relationship quiet, she has no plans to slow down. ”I’m still going to work,” she told Us Weekly. “I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”

Lil Kim was at Fashion Week to perform at an afterparty. She announced her pregnancy onstage before launching into her act. She’s also planning for her baby to take his or her place in the hip-hop world — before launching into “Lighters Up,” she told the crowd, ”It’s also going to be Biggie’s birthday and the anniversary of his death soon, so we [as she pointed to her belly] love you.”

This might make it slightly less appealing for Lil Kim’s friend and fan Miley Cyrus to dress up as her, as she did last Halloween. Then again, a sexy baby bump might be right up Miley’s alley.
