Less than a week after revealing she’s expecting a child with her boyfriend Niko Khale, Keyshia Cole tells fans she’s “about to pop” and shares a picture to prove it.
Last Friday, the R&B singer posted the first picture of her baby bump, and now, it appears she waited till the very end to share her good news with the world.
In a recent photo shared to her Instagram Stories, Cole, 37, put her massive bump on display and wrote:
“About to pop”
The Shade Room reposted the picture, prompting shocking comments from fans.
Cole’s son, Daniel “DJ” Gibson Jr., also seems to be pretty excited about getting a sibling and dropped a hint about the baby’s gender
“I didn't even know she was pregnant,” remarked one Instagram user.
“This pregnancy was a SECRET secret,” chimed in another.
A third user joked about Cole not wanting the public to keep tabs on her pregnancy progress.
“You people always be talking bout people pregnant for 2 years and Keyshia wasn't about to have that.”

Cole and Khale, 23, who have been dating for over a year now, seem to be more in love than ever with the impending arrival of their child.
The “Heaven Sent” singer already has a nine-year-old son with her estranged husband, NBA player Daniel Gibson, but this will likely be the first child for Khale.
Cole first went public with news of her second baby on May 3rd by sharing the first image of her baby bump alongside loved-up photos of herself and Khale.
“Went to Catalina island Last weekend. Had such a good time!!!! Surrounded by Loooooooooove,” she captioned the post while avoiding a direct reference to her pregnancy. “Just enjoying good times and GREAT VIBES.”
The “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” alum added:
“I have a few shows coming up next weekend, DETROIT, MIAMI, #MOTHERSDay is coming I’m ready for ALL THE Love and GREAT ENERGY.”
Khale, a budding music artist, reposted the photo of his girlfriend’s bump while praising her as a “strong, beautiful, independent woman.”
“Every day you inspire me,” he continued. “Blessed to have you as a partner in life as well as the mother of my child. God is great.”
Cole’s son, Daniel “DJ” Gibson Jr., also seems to be pretty excited about getting a sibling and dropped a hint about the baby’s gender in a comment on the singer’s post.
“I’m sooooo excited [to] have my baby brother on the way, mommy!!! Yaaaaay!!!!!!” DJ gushed.
Whenever Cole eventually welcomes her baby, one thing is sure: that little one already has a lot of love to feed off.
