Nelly and Ashanti Expecting First Child Together: Exciting Moments at Black & White Charity Ball 2023

Numerous clips capturing special moments from Nelly’s Black & White Charity Ball 2023 in St. Louis have gone viral, featuring a heartwarming scene with the spotlight on Ashanti. During their on-stage appearance, fans observed Ashanti placing her hand affectionately on her stomach, a gesture reciprocated by Nelly. The couple burst into laughter, sparking speculation among attendees that they are on the verge of expanding their family.

This romantic journey traces back to their initial connection in 2003, culminating in a breakup in 2013. However, fate intervened, and their paths crossed again during Fat Joe and Ja Rule’s Verzuz battle in 2021, reigniting the flame between the two talented musicians. Prior to officially confirming their rekindled romance in September, the pair was frequently spotted together at various events.

In an exclusive report by US Weekly, inside sources have confirmed the exciting news: “Nelly and Ashanti are joyfully anticipating the arrival of their first child together.” This upcoming addition to the family will be Ashanti’s first child, while Nelly, 49, already has a 29-year-old daughter, Chanelle, and a 24-year-old son, Cornell Haynes III, from his previous relationship with ex Channetta Valentine. The couple's announcement has stirred a wave of anticipation and happiness among their fans, eagerly awaiting the next chapter in their love story.
