Maybe it’s because she celebrated a milestone birthday today (July 11), but Lil’ Kim was in a giving mood. On the afternoon of her 40th, the diminutive diva shared the first pic of her newborn “princess,” Royal Reign.
Born on June 9, the adorable rap scion was photographed while swathed in white blankets and a matching knit cap. A clearly emotional Kim first hashtagged her fan army by their various Killer Bee handles, thanking them for the born-day wishes, before gushing about her little bundle.
“On my Birthday I want to share something special with U all…. The greatest gift I have ever received. My princess, Royal !!!!! This is her first picture on the day she was born,” she wrote on her Instagram. “It was life changing and I want to share a small piece of my pride and joy with U.”
Royal Reign is Kim’s first child. The Bed-Stuy spitter and her boyfriend, New York-based rapper Mr. Papers, welcomed her into the world just over a month ago with a name only a Queen B could come up with.
