Lil Kim, who was born Kimberly Denise Jones, confirmed the her pregnancy again in an interview with Us Weekly, telling the magazine, "I'm so excited! I'm a few months along, I can't wait to be a mom!"

"I'm a mom, but I can turn it up a little!" she added. "I'm still going to work. I'm still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!"

The Brooklyn-born Queen Bee, as she is known in the hip-hop world, was true to her word as she didn’t allow her baby bump stop her from performing her hit single "Lighters Up" later that night at the show.

During the performance, Lil Kim pointed to her belly and told the audience, "It's also going to be Biggie's birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we love you," Us Weekly reported.

Lil Kim, who is single and has no other children, has yet to say who the father is.

In response to the revelation, R&B singer Tamar Braxton congratulated Lil Kim on Twitter writing, "Awwwww congrats @LilKim on your little one," while celebrity blogger Perez Hilton posted a photo of himself with the rapper on Instagram with the caption, "Me and a very PREGNANT #LilKim at #TheBlonds show. Congrats, boo!!! #NYFW."

Having sold more than 11 million albums worldwide during her 20-year career, the Grammy Award-winning Lil Kim earned a spot on VH1’s "100 Greatest Women in Music" list in 2008.

Lil Kim’s hit singles, such as "No Time", "Big Momma Thang," and "Ladies Night," were also listed on Complex Magazine's "The 50 Best Rap Songs By Women," while the rap songs "It's All About the Benjamins" and "Money, Power, Respect" were featured on VH1's "The 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs" list.
