Monica expecting a baby
Monica made a name for herself in the late 1990's with her hit single "The Boy is Mine" alongside Brandy, and now she's back in the news for having a boy (or a girl). BET reports the R&B singer, who is married to Phoenix Suns star Shannon Brown, announced her pregnancy on her social media page.
Monica not only let followers in on her and Brown's happy news, but gave fans a glimpse of her growing bump in her Instagram shot, which she also posted on Twitter. The photo was accompanied by a message letting her followers in on her little secret.
"5 months & counting," the singer simply stated.
Brown also expressed his overwhelming excitement, sharing another snapshot of him and Monica attending an event. The photo clearly shows off the singer's bump. The basketball player added his thoughts on the impending arrival, writing, "Hallelujah!!! Thank God!!! Thank you Jesus!!! I'm so Blessed!!!" on Instagram and Twitter.
According to BET, this will be the couple's first child together, though Monica has two sons, Romelo and Rocko with ex-love, rapper Rocko. Brown also has one child, son Shannon Christopher, from a previous relationship.
