The Queen Bee is a soon-to-be mommy. Lil' Kim announced she is pregnant yesterday by debuting her baby bump at Fashion Week.

"I'm so excited! I'm a few months along, I can't wait to be a mom!" Lil' Kim exclusively told Us Weekly. The 39-year-old rapper is not planning on ditching her hardcore ways any time soon despite her bun in the oven. "I'm a mom, but I can turn it up a little!" she said as she rubbed her belly, adding, "I'm still going to work. I'm still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!"  

Lil Kim planned to release a new mixtape Hard Core 2K13, an update of her classic debut, last year.
