Congratulations are in order for Kelis, who is now a mother of three!
The Grammy-nominated singer announced in a Saturday Instagram post that she delivered her new baby girl a week ago.
Kelis, who welcomes her first daughter and second child with husband Mike Mora, described the experience as “intense.” Her eldest child is her 11-year-old son from her marriage with rap superstar Nas.
The “Milkshake” singer took to her IG to invite her fans to witness her health journey back to pre-pregnancy form.
“I’m going to bring you guys in as much as I can on my plan to get back to myself,” she wrote in the caption.
Unable to exercise for six weeks, Kelis intends to lose weight with a special diet plan.
“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and, you know, I’m generally a really private person with my personal life, but I wanted to kind of like bring my fam in, bring you guys in, to sort of like talk about all of these women’s things that we go through that no one really tells us about,” she said in the video explaining her steps to pull it back together, what she calls “my snap back.”
“I want to show you, kind of, how I plan on getting back into my high-waist jeans, which you know I love so much, with just food,” Kelis said in the video. “Like, no exercise, because I can’t yet, and with just food.”
As an accomplished chef and food entrepreneur, she is offering a sale of her “Gold Mine” boxes, containing a collection of sauces and seasonings. She sells her boxes and food prep items via her website bountyandfull.com.
The “Bossy” singer said that she’s “50 to 60” pounds away from her goal.
“I’m going to run a little sale to start because I want to show you what I’m eating, and I want you to be able to get them all and be able to enjoy them with me while I’m going through this process,” she continued.
“I’ll show you what I’m eating daily, and what I’m not eating and when I’m eating it and all that stuff so you can sort of see, like, what it is I’m doing, and we can do it together.”
Kelis says her methods and food choices during the six-week period are “anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising” and will aid in “joint and gut health” as well as “SKIN AND HAIR.”
Her cooking web series “Cooked with Kelis” is available on her YouTube channel.
