NEWS: Lil Wayne Announces Son On The Way, Speculation On Mother Begins

Lil Wayne proved to be an even bigger winner than usual this past weekend at the taping of the 2008 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

According to MTV News, The rapper won the coveted “Lyricist of the Year” award and during his thank you speech announced he’s expecting a son. In just a couple of days. He didn’t say who the mother was.

Weezy was nominated for a whopping 12 awards. He’s had a huge 2008, from his album sales–which recently topped 2.5 million–to cementing his place among rap’s elite.

But news of his impending father may top all his musical feats. The rapper is already parent to a daughter, whom he had as a teen with a former girlfriend.

However, speculation is swirling on the identity of his new child. Nivea, who the rapper once dated and was believed to have an on-again/off-again relationship, is rumored to be the mother. As is Karrine “Superhead” Stephens. Wayne, in interviews, has professed his love for the video dancer turned bestselling author.

And Stephens, in a video blog on her site, while she didn’t confirm being pregnant, she did speak on her weight gain.

“If I look fat, it’s because I am, so leave me alone,” she said in an October 11 posting. “I’ve been living good and eating good.”

In the September issue of XXL, both parties–Wayne and Stephens–spoke on their feelings for each other. Wayne, for his part, seemed to be past his dealings with her. Stephens detailed parts of their relationship in a written piece titled “Playing With Fire.”

No comment by either woman has been made as of press time–Anthony Thomas
