Kelis has welcomed her third child.

The Milkshake hitmaker, 40, took to Instagram on Saturday to share the exciting news with her fans as she revealed she’d welcomed a baby girl following an ‘intense’ labour.

Kelis’ announcement came just over a month after she announced she was expected her third child, as she joking said she needed a ‘table for 5.’

In the video Kelis told her fans: ‘Hey, so I’ve been kind of MIA…but for a really good reason cause I just had my baby.

“And it was intense. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I’m generally a really private person, with my personal life, but I wanted to kind of bring my fam in to sort of talk about all of these women’s things we go through that no one really tells us about.

‘So I had my baby a week ago and I had a girl by the way – so very excited about that – it’s my first girl! I wanted to bring you into my process.’

In August Kelis announced that she was expecting her third child, in an Instagram post to promote a home pregnancy test brand.

‘Chef Kelis – table for 5 please. We’re adding one more!’ wrote the singer, songwriter and chef in the caption.

The Harlem-born artist continued, ‘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.’ 

Later in the caption, Kelis -whose full name is Kelis Rogers- cited her concerns that ‘we still live in a country where Black women historically have had the highest maternal mortality rates.’ 

The Grammy-nominated singer has two sons: Knight, eleven, with ex Nas, and Shepherd, four, with husband Mike Mora.

The singer also recently revealed that it was her children who convinced her to take part in The Masked Singer earlier this year.

She said: ‘They just thought that this is the best thing ever and said you should absolutely do this, they were all about it.’

The songstress was unmasked as the character of Daisy back in January after she lost out to Monster in the bottom two.
