Page Six says that Kelis is pregnant! All that coronavirus lockdown sex is starting to come to fruition, eh? Lots of people are probably knocked up right now, but they won’t get to announce like Kelis did. No, she didn’t turn her pregnancy announcement into a theatrical event like others have done. She went a different route and got herself some sponsored Instagram content. I mean, hey, why not get paid to piss on a stick?
40-year-old Kelis married 41-year-old Mike Mora in secret back in 2014. Mike is not a famous type, and apparently the two of them are living a simple life on a farm in Temecula, CA. Apart from raising chickens, cows, and goats or whatever else farmers raise, Kelis and Mike are also raising children. She and Mike have a 4-year-old son, Shepherd and she also has an 11-year-old son, Knight, from her marriage to Nas. Add another to the list, because Kelis and Mike made a new baby. She announced the pregnancy saying, “Table for 5 please.”
And her picture included her actual First Response pregnancy test. Kelis says she partnered with First Response because they are “committed to supporting healthy, equitable pregnancy journeys and understand the importance of a nurturing environment for black women and mothers.”

Chef Kelis – table for 5 please. We’re adding one more! 🤰🏾🖤 Happy to announce that I’m expecting and I’m partnering with @firstresponsepregnancy, as they are committed to supporting healthy, equitable pregnancy journeys and understand the importance of a nurturing environment for black women and mothers. #Ad #BlackMamasMatter #Motherhood As a Black mother, there are so many things to consider during this time in your life, especially during the crazy times that we live in — from what we eat, to how we live and love. This is the time we must take for ourselves without apologies, especially when we still live in a country where Black women historically have had the highest maternal mortality rates. So for me, self-care has become paramount, particularly in the beginning stages. Knowing your body and what it needs, being able to be still and quiet enough to hear what it tells you. That’s why I used a First Response Early Result test as it can tell you if you’re pregnant 6 days sooner than your missed period.* Don’t be afraid to look for a team that looks like you and can relate with a level of care that will make you feel your most comfortable. It’s your right. It’s our right. And we must demand not only what’s best for us, but for our community. So, I’m so grateful to be able to work with First Response and to announce that a charitable donation to @blackmamasmatter will be made on my behalf. @blackmamasmatter is an organization that’s working to ensure Black mamas have the rights, respect, resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy. Together we can change these statistics, one woman at a time. *Early Result Pregnancy Test detected the pregnancy hormone levels in 76% of pregnant women 5 days before their expected period.
After coming out about getting stiffed out of the money made on her first two albums, I’m glad that Kelis’ pregnancy piss is bringing all the money to the yard. And she isn’t the first one to team up with a pregnancy test brand for her pregnancy announcement. But let’s just hope that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian don’t learn that they can make money off of pissing on sticks for Instagram, because nobody needs to see that.
