Lil' Kim has revealed she is expecting her first child, but has decided to keep the father's identity a secret for now.

The 39-year-old star revealed she was pregnant when she turned up at New York Fashion Week yesterday (Feb 12) sporting a huge baby bump beneath her clingy dress.

She also told Us Weekly magazine: ''I'm so excited! I'm a few months along. I can't wait to be a mum!' 'I'm still going to work. I'm still going to be hardcore, the baby has made me even more of a beast!''

Lil' Kim also attended the Blonds Fashion Week after party in New York where she performed Lighters Up and dedicated it to the late Notorious B.I.G.

She told the crowd: ''It's also going to be Biggie's birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we [as she points to her belly] love you.''

Lil' Kim has decided to keep the identity of her child's father private at this time, but she was last romantically linked to professional boxer Floyd Mayweather, 36, and the pair were still dating last September.
