If all goes well, the baby will be Lil Wayne's third son to be born in just over a year. He and actress Lauren London welcomed a baby boy last month, and in October of last year, while accepting a BET Hip-Hop Award, Wayne announced to the crowd he was expecting his first son in a matter of days.
Wayne did not provide many details about the impending birth in the BBC interview.
"Two girls pregnant at the same time?" Westwood said. "Congratulations."
Wayne responded "Three," before clarifying his remark for Westwood, who thought the rapper meant he'd gotten three women pregnant at the same time.
"I mean [I'll have] three sons," he explained.
When Wayne was asked if Nivea was expecting, he responded, "Yessir."
The casual announcement was similar to Wayne's confirmation of London's pregnancy, which he also revealed during a radio interview, with Los Angeles' Power 106.
Rumors of Nivea's pregnancy have been rampant for months (the singer and former husband The-Dream filed for separation in December of 2007), but no official comment emerged. In a recent clip that appeared online, a visibly pregnant Nivea participated in a baby shower — judging by appearances, the baby is due soon.
A representative for Lil Wayne had no comment when contacted by MTV News; a rep for Nivea was unable to be reached at press time.
The baby will be Lil Wayne's fourth child, although information about the children and their mothers is sparse.
In addition to his son with London and the son that was born last year (to an unidentified mother), the rapper has an older daughter, Reginae, with his ex-wife Antonia "Toya" Carter.
