Their representatives did not immediately respond to Page Six's requests for comment.

The “Rock Wit U (Awww Baby)” singer, 43, announced in April that she and the “Hot in Herre” hitmaker, 49, are engaged.

She also confirmed her pregnancy after months of speculation.

“This new year of my life is a blessing filled with love, hope and anticipation,” she told Essence at the time.

“Motherhood is something I've been looking forward to, and sharing that with my family, my fiancé, and loyal fans — who have been so supportive of my career — is an amazing experience.”

Ashanti went on to post a video on Instagram in which her mother appears asking if she is ready to go on stage for a show.

“I need about nine months,” Ashanti replied when she showed her mother the result of the positive pregnancy test.

The video ended with the words “To be continued…”

The “Foolish” singer made sure to tag Nelly, captioning the post, “Baby baby baby baby…. ❤️🙏🏽😆.”

After dating for a decade, they split in 2013, with Ashanti later explaining that the Dilemma-topping star had “betrayed” her.

However, in April 2023, the musicians sparked reconciliation rumors while sitting ringside at a boxing match in Las Vegas.

After secretly dating for several months, Nelly revealed in September 2023 that he and Ashanti were officially back together.

At the time, he admitted that the re-coupling “surprised” both of them.

The rapper is already a father to daughter Chanel Hines, 30, and son Cornell Hines III, 25, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Shanita Valentine.

Nelly also adopted his late sister's two children – Sean Thomas and Sydney Thomas – after she died of leukemia in 2005.
