FREEZING HER EGGS

Shantel edged into the subject by asking Nelly if he remembered her talking about a plan to harvest and freeze her eggs "just in case" she wanted a family later on, since she is now 35.

Shantel then snidely commented that her eggs were probably already old, to which a smiling Nelly replied:

"Your eggs ain't old!"

Shantel then moved the conversation up to the next level and asked Nelly the big question. She said:

"If I did want to move forward and freezing the eggs and having a baby, would you want the kid?"

At this question, Nelly looked a bit baffled, especially when Shantel explained that he would have to collect sperm "in a cup" for in vitro fertilization.

Nelly told Shantel that he is a "natural guy," and "if it happens it happens" but then he turned around. He said:

"It's your decision, I'm here to be supportive. Either way babe, I love you!"

WAITING FOR THE BIG NEWS

This conversation took place back in 2017, and fans of the couple have been eagerly waiting for news of a pregnancy, which has been slow in coming. Shantel has been embroiled in a pregnancy scandal by her old boyfriend, boxer Floyd Mayweather.

As a consequence of his accusation, Shantel, who revealed she had a traumatic miscarriage, filed a lawsuit against him for assault, battery, defamation, and invasion of privacy.

Mayweather countersued, accusing Shantel of illegally recording private conversations between them. In the countersuit Mayweather stated:

“Jackson intentionally used one or more recording devices to surreptitiously record conversations with Mayweather (...) without Mayweather's knowledge or consent.”

STANDING BY HER MAN

Nelly has stood by Shantel's side throughout it all, and she has stood by him too. When Nelly was accused of sexually assaulting a fan in Britain in October 2017, Shantel was supportive and publicly declared that she believed that he was innocent.

Before dating Shantel, Nelly had a long relationship with singer Ashanti. The two dated for 10 years, before quietly breaking up shortly before the rapper met Shantel. Ashanti exhibited some bitterness, saying:

"When people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I've been betrayed."

Ashanti never went into details about the "betrayal" or the incident that led to the breakup and kept the same discretion she exhibited throughout the relationship.
