Ashanti And Nelly engaged and expecting!

These names may be a blast from the past, but Ashanti and Nelly are all about their future after announcing two major life moves.

The singers spoke to Essense magazine exclusively to announce their engagement and to share that they are expecting their first child together.

“This new year of my life is such a blessing full of love, hope, and anticipation,” she says. “Motherhood is something that I have looked forward to, and sharing this with my family, fiancé, and loyal fans, who have been so supportive of my career, is an amazing experience.”

This is Ashanti’s first child and Nelly’s fifth. He has a daughter, Chanelle, a son, Cornell Jr., and adopted Shawn and Sydney Thomas, the two children of his sister, Jackie Donahue, after she died of leukemia in 2005.

Mazol to both of them!
