Yesterday, Lil’ Kim announced to the world that she is pregnant. The 39-year-old rapper who has a single called “Magic Stick” with explicit sexual content is pregnant with her first child. In response to this joyful news, here is a list of the top five most shocking baby announcements for celebrity pregnancies.
As mentioned above, Lil’ Kim is the first of the five surprise celebrity pregnancies, a 39-year-old rapper known for her explicit lyrics as well as her nearly nude outfit choices. She was at one time, the mistress of the late rapper Biggie Smalls. Also, she spent 10 months incarcerated for perjury for denying any knowledge of a shooting outside of a New York City radio station, for which, video cameras proved she was present. The benefit of this was prior to her sentence, she was the star of her own reality show “Lil’ Kim: Countdown to Lockdown” on BET. She said that she is “even more of a beast” after becoming pregnant. Watch out world.
Teen Mom 2 celebrity, Jenelle Evans, has been a mess since her debut on the show. She gave custody of her son to her mother before using heroin and checking herself into rehab. Then, she had a surprise wedding to a guy; they got in a domestic brawl and separated after eight weeks of marriage. After that she was arrested for possession of heroin and spent some time in jail. Now, Evans is pregnant with a new boyfriend’s baby, which at first she planned to abort. The 22-year-old seems to be in over her head with the new baby and health issues to boot.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
The third on the list of celebrity pregnancies list of top five most shocking baby announcements are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. West announced the pregnancy of girlfriend, Kardashian on stage at a concert without consulting her. The news stunned fans. West and Kardashian have now brought a son into the dysfunctional Kardashian clan, to be yet another star on “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” With West believing he is a “god” and a “genius,” and Kardashian, far from a genius, they certainly make an interesting pair of parents and a great recurring joke on Saturday Night Live.
No one saw this one coming. Nicole Polizzi, or better known as “Snooki” announced her pregnancy after fans watch her party harder than it was thought possible for years on the reality show, “The Jersey Shore.” She worried about how her drinking in the first month of her pregnancy affected the baby. No one saw her on “The Jersey Shore” and thought that she was ready to be a mom. She was known for being a ball of trouble. After her son, Lorenzo was born she had another crazy night of drinking that almost ruined her engagement with Jionni Lavalle, the father of her baby. Things seemed to have settled down since.
It has been a while since this one, but Britney Spears has given the world a lot of surprises and her pregnancies are one of them. She quickly married Kevin Federline and in five months was pregnant. Then, three months after she gave birth to her first child, she was pregnant with her second. Then, two months after she had her second child, she filed for divorce with Federline and went through a few turbulent years with a shaved head and meltdowns. For a good span of six or more years there she was nothing but surprises. While certainly not as audacious a beginning as some of these pregnancies, she still gets to make the top five most shocking baby announcements in celebrity pregnancies.
