After growing speculation, hip-hop artist Mr. Papers has come forward to speak out on being the man responsible for getting fellow rapper Lil' Kim pregnant.
According to Papers, they are expecting to welcome a baby boy into the world later this year.
In an interview with "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show," her baby daddy, Mr. Papers, revealed the baby's gender and shot down rumors that he and Kim are no longer a couple. "We're together. Everything good," he said. "That's my wife. That's my baby." Kim is around six months pregnant and the baby is due in May/June. "He gon' be a Gemini," said Papers, who has a four-year-old son from a previous relationship. The couple has yet to announce a name for their baby boy. "We gon' let ya'll know soon though," he said.

Earlier in the week, Papers appeared to take responsibility for Kim's child.
Shortly after Kim's pregnancy made headlines, Mr. Papers posted a snap of himself on the photo-sharing site. "I heard everybody looking for me?????????????????" he wrote. Calling himself "Daddy" on Twitter, the New York-based rapper also retweeted news about Kim's pregnancy as well as congratulatory messages. "Congratz on the royal baby!" a tweet read, to which he answered, "Royal is a good name for the lil homie." He also thanked another person who congratulated him on the baby news. (Ace Showbiz)
Reports also claim the music duo have had an on-again, off-again relationship dating back two years ago.
She tweeted back in 2012 that she and Papers had broken up, thanking her fans for all their love and support and writing, "As of 2night me & Papers are officially over. No malice or bad blood. I'll see U guys soon. #12DaysofXmas." To which he replied, "@LilKim don't be so mad you fighting with ya self... Get ya facts str8 lol." But the couple obviously reconciled at some point: He collaborated on her remix of Rihanna's "Pour It Up" and starred with her in the music video that came out last March, and he once again was being referred to as her boyfriend.
