The talk of New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was Lil’ Kim showing up to The Blonds show on Feb. 12 with a growing baby bump. Sources tell me she is about four and a half months along.

She told the crowd: “I’m a mom, but I can still turn it up a little. I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast.”
