Lil Nas X has announced he’s expecting, complete with a pregnancy photo shoot featuring a very real-looking baby bump, white gown, a crown of flowers and even an ultrasound pic!
“SURPRISE!” he posted on Twitter, referring to his debut album, not an actually baby, that is.
“I can’t believe I’m finally announcing this. My little bundle of joy “MONTERO” is due September 17, 2021.”

In an interview with People, the “Industry Baby” rapper describes the album as a reflection of the “places I’ve been to places I want to go.”
“You’re getting a lot of stories about me. You’re getting a lot of stories about my past and where I want to be in my love life. But they’re also a bop. I feel like I finally found a great balance between being as real as possible within my music and making a hit song,” he tells the publication.
Earlier, he shared on Twitter how this album has been like “therapy” for him:
“I’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who I am, what I can do, and where I will be. I’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”
The album features collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion, Elton John, Miley Cyrus and more.
Like he said, his due date is in just a few weeks – September 17!
