Ashanti & Nelly Expecting First Child, Confirm Engagement

Things are heating up pretty fast between the rapper Nelly and his lover Ashanti. What had passed as mere speculation about their relationship has finally been confirmed: They are engaged.

The couple shared this information, as well as dwelled on other areas of their relationship, during an interview with Essence magazine on Wednesday.

It was a big deal not just to them but to their fans as well, as most of them turned up on social media to celebrate the fact they have shown greater commitment to their relationship by getting engaged.

During the interview, Ashanti observed in part: “This new year of my life is such a blessing full of love, hope, and anticipation.”

By the way, beyond the engagement confirmation, there is something even bigger: The two of them are expecting their first child together.

Ashanti and Nelly have an interesting relationship dating as far back as 2003. You heard that right. That was official when they began dating. In 2013, though, things fell apart and they broke up.

End of story, right? Well, not really. They would link up and become lovers once again. This time, they are stronger in their commitment to each other, something they recently amplified with their engagement confirmation
