Keyshia Cole Expecting First Child
R&B singer Keyshia Cole may have been doing a little more than just taking time off during her time out of the spotlight, according to the rumor mill the 28-year-old is pregnant. Speculation that Cole and her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, were expecting arose after photos of the singer sporting a baby bump hit the Net. Although neither of the two have confirmed or denied the reports, a source “close” to Cole confirmed the news to Sister 2 Sister magazine. The source also claims the Oakland, Calif. native is due in March of next year and currently has no plans to marry Gibson.
Cole starred in her own reality show ‘Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is’ which premiered on BET in 2007. By season two she earned the cable channel its highest series premiere ratings of 2.9 million viewers. Despite a successful third season, Cole never signed on for a fourth. Her company Imani Entertainment produces a spin-off of the show ‘Frankie & Neffe,’ featuring her mother and sister, which premiered on BET earlier this year.
The Grammy nominated singer released her third album ‘A Different Me,’ in 2008 debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 charts. She is said to be working on her fourth studio album.
