Keyshia Cole who is already a mom to an 8-year-old son, Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr. (DJ), whom she shares with her ex, NBA player Daniel Gibson, has announced that she is pregnant with her second child.
The 36-year-old singer who made the announcement on Instagram, also shared a photo of herself posing in a curve-hugging snakeskin ensemble.
“#preggoinmyFashionNovaFit,” she captioned the shot, adding, “#CongradulationsAreinOrder [sic].”
Keyshia Cole first got married to Gibson in May 2011 and they renewed their vows months later in a ceremony filmed for their BET reality show, Keyshia and Daniel: Family First. In 2014 however, Cole announced that she and Gibson had split. Though she has not yet revealed the father of her soon-to-be second child, it is on records that she has been dating Niko Khale.
The 22-year-old rapper took to Instagram to share several photos of himself celebrating the Fourth of July with Cole and her son, DJ.
“Happy 4th yalll! 🚤🚤🚤 We lightin up the sky tonight 💥💥💥💥,” he captioned a pic of the trio on jetskis.
She previously dated rapper Birdman, which led to a violent altercation in 2014 when the songstress found another woman in the 49-year-old’s home. Sabrina Mercadel accused Cole of assaulting her in September 2014, after the Incapable singer found her at the Leather So Soft singer’s home in Los Angeles. Mercadel sued Cole for $4 million, but was awarded $100,635, according to TMZ.
Born on October 24, 1981, in Oakland, California, Keyshia (KEE-sha) Cole was one of seven children born to a crack-addicted mother who turned to prostitution to support herself and was later imprisoned for three years. Cole’s mother said that her father was a white Italian-American named Sal. She was placed in foster care at age two and later adopted by her foster family. Cole’s biological mother, Frankie, was an inconsistent presence in her life, but Cole kept in touch with siblings who remained within her biological family.
