Ashanti and Nelly Announce Engagement and Expecting Their First Child Together

Exciting news from the music world as Ashanti and Nelly have announced they are expecting their first child together and are now engaged!

In an exclusive interview with ESSENCE, Ashanti expressed her elation about entering motherhood and her engagement, highlighting this phase as a time filled with love, hope, and anticipation. “Motherhood has always been a dream of mine, and to experience this with my fiancé, family, and the support of my fans feels truly wonderful,” she shared.

Adding to their personal joy, the couple also revealed their joint business venture as co-owners of Proov, a diagnostics company founded by Amy Beckley, PhD. Proov specializes in affordable, medical-grade, at-home tests designed to assist individuals in conceiving more efficiently by identifying potential fertility issues. Notably, the company played a role in Ashanti’s pregnancy reveal, which was jointly shared by ESSENCE on social media.

This marks a significant life milestone for Ashanti as her first child, while Nelly will be welcoming his fifth. He is already a father to his daughter Chanelle, son Cornell Jr., and two adopted children, Shawn and Sydney Thomas, following the passing of his sister in 2005 due to leukemia.

The duo, who first sparked romance back in 2003, reconnected last year and have since been spotted at various events, displaying affection and collaborating professionally. Their rekindled relationship was confirmed by Nelly in an interview last fall with Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta stars Kirk and Rasheeda Frost, where he commented, “Yeah, we cool again. It wasn’t planned, it just happened naturally, which was a surprise to us both.”

Reflecting on their evolved relationship, Nelly emphasized the ease of their current dynamic, contrasting it with the past pressures of their public romantic life intertwined with their burgeoning music careers. “It’s no pressure this time around. We’re older, we’re doing things differently, and it’s just about us now,” he explained.

This new chapter in their lives promises joy and excitement not only for them but for their fans who have followed their careers and personal stories over the years. The public got a hint of their warming relationship during the Verzuz event between Fat Joe and Ja Rule, where Nelly’s unexpected hug to Ashanti caught everyone off guard, including her.

Stay tuned as this beloved couple embarks on this beautiful journey together, blending family, business, and love in a uniquely public yet personal way.
