The happy news comes 14 months after the 39-year-old welcomed daughter Gianna in January, 2019. The couple is also parents to Walker's daughter Madison, 7, from his previous marriage.

Luckett and Walker were married in a lavish ceremony at Villa Antonia in Austin, Texas in December, 2017.

The singer joined up with Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and LaTavia Roberson to form Destiny’s Child in 1993, but she and Roberson were replaced by new members Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin after they expressed interest in hiring their own manager, outside of Beyonce's controlling father Mathew Knowles, in 2000.

In an Instagram Live after the video's release, Katy told fans that the baby is due this summer.

"There's a lot that will be happening this summer," she grinned. "Not only will I be giving birth, literally, but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for. So let's just call it a double whammy. It's a two-for.

Katy added that she's been struggling with pregnancy cravings, and carries a bottle of hot sauce around with her wherever she goes. She also admitted she's been eating "the same burrito for weeks on end."

Katy and Orlando plan a June wedding. According to the New York Post's Page Six gossip column, the pair hopes to exchange vows in Japan - a country they both love. However, their dream may not be able to become reality due to the coronavirus spread halting airline travel to Asia.

After announcing her pregnancy, Katy took to Twitter to tell her fans she was "so glad" she didn't have to "suck in" her bump any more, adding: "or carry around a big purse lol."

The couple's pregnancy news comes after they celebrated the one-year anniversary of their engagement on Valentine's Day last month.

Cardi B's alleged attack on two sisters who were bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York in 2018 was orchestrated by her bestie Star Brim, feds say.

On Tuesday, federal prosecutors charged Brim with racketeering and illegal gang activities for allegedly heading a notorious NY street gang.

Feds reportedly gave Brim, who is 9 months pregnant, one month to turn herself in after giving birth. The baby is due this month (Feb).

The first-time mom proudly posed with her baby daddy, an alleged Crips gang member, at her baby shower last month.

Brim captioned an Instagram image: "THE PARENTS... HAVEN'T PARTIED FOR 8 MONTHS HAD TO TURN UP".
 

Also attending the baby shower was her bestie Cardi B, actress LaLa Anthony, and rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed in a home invasion early Wednesday in California.

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, the rapper's best friend ordered the 5-9 Brims gang members to target two sisters and deliver a savage beatdown without killing them.

After a gang member sent her video of the first assault on the sisters, Brim, whose real name is Yonette Respass, didn't think the first assault was "vicious" enough, court documents claim. So she ordered gang members to attack the women again.

Prosecutors unsealed federal indictments against the "Bodak Yellow" rapper's alleged "muscle" Jeffrey Bush, 35, and her close pal Brim, 28, on racketeering conspiracy charges for their alleged involvement with the 5-9 Brims, a chapter of the notorious Bloods gang.

Brim, who is allegedly the gangs' 'godmother' or highest-ranking female member, apparently ordered a beatdown on the sisters for showing disrespect to Cardi, prosecutors allege.

One of the sisters was accused of sleeping with Cardi's promiscuous husband, rapper Offset of Migos. Brim (left) and Cardi are pictured at a Queens, NY courthouse, where Cardi faces trial on assault charges.

"I want hands put on them. I don't even want no talking," Brim ordered the gang, according to court papers.

Bush and three other female gang members then arrived at the Angels strip club on August 15, where they grabbed one of the bartenders by the hair, dragged her across the bar and punched her in the head.

Bush recorded the entire incident on his cell phone and sent the footage to Brim, who was doing time in prison for assault.

"Dissatisfied with the first attack, defendant Respass continued communicating with other enterprise members about the assault, and discussed whether the assault was vicious enough or if 5-9 Brims needed to attack the victim again," a detention memo alleges.
 

Bush and Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, still have assault charges pending against them in Queens Supreme Court for the second incident. Cardi, who was present but did not participate in the assaults, has pleaded not guilty on the assault charges.

Karrine Steffans, aka Superhead, claims she was knocked up by "serial entrepreneur" Everett Taylor - and now he's threatening suicide.

Taylor, a 31-year-old tech wizard who founded the marketing software PopSocial, took to Instagram to threaten suicide after Steffans claimed she is pregnant with his baby.

Taylor described Steffans as an "evil" person who "has been a huge trigger for my depression, anxiety and just overall struggles with my mental health."

Taylor said Steffans threatened to destroy his career whenever he tried to leave her.

"For years I would do whatever she said, and give her anything she needed. If I did not, she would threaten to ruin my career."

He said her constant threats sent him to a "darker place," and when he reached out to another male friend of Steffans', the man advised Taylor to cut off all communications with her.

Some people say Taylor's lengthy suicide note is a cry for help. One friend assured Taylor's social media followers that he is fine.

Steffans made her mark in the literary world with the release of her first book, Confessions of a Video Vixen (2005). In the sensational book, she described her brief oral fixations with bold name rappers and athletes, including Jay Z and Shaquille O'Neal.

Read Taylor's suicide note below.

Racism is everywhere, but British-born actress Jodie Turner-Smith and her husband, Joshua Jackson, are contemplating raising their child outside of the U.S. because of white supremacy.

"The racial dynamics over here are fraught," Turner-Smith told People.com. "White supremacy is overt. It's the reason I don't want to raise my kids here. I don't want my kids to grow up doing active shooter drills at school."

The 'Queen & Slim' star, 33, is expecting her first child with Jackson, 41. She said she has felt hostile reactions from the Black community over being an interracial couple.

"There was this wave of people who were upset that I was possibly married to a white man," she said. "In America interracial dating or marriage is not something that is as accepted. Certain people feel strongly against it, in both communities. I felt it from the Black community. It is so complicated. I don't want to give it too much energy."

She said she was initially excited to move to America and meet other Black people, but it felt like a "huge culture shock" because she claims she was "rejected by the Black community."

Turner-Smith and other British actors were criticized by the Black community for taking acting roles away from American-born Black actors.

Chloe Sevigny is pregnant with her first child at age 45. The former model and actress who starred in American Horror Story is expecting a child with boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic.

Sevigny showed off her baby bump at the Karma art gallery on Monday. In pictures published by TMZ, she shared a kiss with Mackovic, while cradling her bump.

Sevigny is the latest celebrity over 35 to fall pregnant or hire a surrogate to carry their IVF babies.

She previously said not having kids has kept her skin looking youthful.

"I think the baby wear and tear and stress on your body is part of the reason why people say, 'Why do you still look so young?' I think that [pregnancy] unfortunately ages women, especially when they have children in their 30s, not in their 20s. So I think, first and foremost, it's that and genetics."

Atlanta power couple Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are expecting their first child in 2020, according to sources close to the couple.

A source on daytime talk show The Real claims Jeannie is pregnant with rapper Jeezy's baby.

The source claims Jeannie is "eating for two" and that camera crews are under strict orders to shoot her from an angle to hide her growing baby bump.

"We've been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer," the source tells MTO News. "Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there's really no need to make her slimmer."

The source added: "Then we were told that they expect her to gain weight, and they wanted to try and hide it from the cameras.

The 40-year-old television personality is desperate for a baby of her own now that she's approaching middle age.

Her unwillingness to have children led to the collapse of her 10-year marriage to Freddy Harteis.

"My own standards were low," she told co-hosts Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry about her failed marriage.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum."

But Jeannie is not putting all the blame on Freddy. "I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," she said. "When [Freddy] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, 'That's great, he supports me!' That to me is my standard of support."

She broke down in tears as she recalled realizing she deserved more when she started dating Jeezy, and he was so attentive to her.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic... I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport. He was like, 'are you kidding? I want to see you off,'" she said.

Back in July, video surfaced online that showed singer Keke Wyatt rubbing her pregnant belly. In the video, Keke performed her hit song "My First Love," while caressing her belly bump.

As if her pregnancy wasn't already obvious for months, the Indiana native just confirmed her pregnancy again.

On Tuesday, the 37-year-old reality TV star shared a portrait on Instagram.com in which she cradles her huge belly bump while immersed in a bathtub filled with milk and rose petals.

She captioned the image:

"My husband Zackariah Darring and I are so happy to announce that we are expecting our new bundle of joy! We are excited to welcome the 10th addition to our beautiful family. Stay tuned for the release date & information for my new YouTube Series “The Keke Show” where you will see me balancing Wife, Mommy and Artist!!! Trust me.. it’s never a dull moment with my family. Love ya sugars".

In September Keke showed off her growing baby bump at the Black Music Honors in Atlanta. She was rudely attacked online for daring to procreate for the 10th time.

Keke's fans rushed to defend her decision to fall pregnant even though she is past the safe age of egg viability.

"Whether she's pregnant or not... she still look good. Plus she's MARRIED and if they want 20 kids then that’s their business," one Instagram user wrote.

Keke, who welcomed her 9th child in 2017, was 18 years old when she married her road manager, Rahmat Morton. She allegedly stabbed Morton with a kitchen knife in 2001. They divorced in 2009 after years of domestic violence incidents.

Keke relocated her three children from Kentucky to Atlanta, where she starred in the reality TV show R&B Divas. She was pregnant with her 4th child at the time, but she suffered a miscarriage. The TV series helped her pay her bills after she married Michael Jamar, an unemployed ordained minister.

Keke and Jamar welcomed two more children and he brought a daughter from a previous relationship into their marriage. The couple divorced in 2018 when she was eight months pregnant with her 9th child, Zachariah.

Black Twitter is buzzing about Nicki Minaj's ex-boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, who dropped a baby off in Erica Mena, but left Nicki childless.

Safaree and Nicki were high school sweethearts. They dated for years before she rose to fame as one of the nation's top female rappers.

Splash News

He contributed to Nicki's career. He is even credited as co-executive producer on Nicki Minaj's album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

Safaree, 38, and Nicki, 36, broke up after 12 years. Now comes word that he is engaged to reality TV star Erica Mena and she is knocked up with his seed.

Ethan Miller/Getty Images

Safaree is set to wed rapper Bow Wow's ex-fiancee, Erica, on October 7, after Safaree proposed to the reality TV star on Christmas Eve last year.

The pair revealed they are expecting their first child together a week before their big day.

"It’s a big deal, a very big deal, I didn't think I was capable of doing this," he said in a YouTube video. "I am excited, nervous, in shock, in disbelief."

Erica, 31, already has a son, King Conde, from a previous relationship. She didn't disclose how far along she is, but the couple revealed their baby is due in early 2020.

Erica appeared on the VH1 show Love & Hip Hop New York before moving on to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. She was previously involved in a made-for-TV relationship with reality TV star Cyn Santana.

That sham relationship led to speculation that her relationship with Safaree is also fake.

Safaree began appearing on the reality show following his split from Nicki in 2014.
