Rumors Summer Walker was pregnant started to surface online on Saturday (June 25) after she shared a pair of Instagram photos of herself in a bikini. Many fans of Walker’s immediately wondered if that was her way of announcing her pregnancy. Rather than let the chatter continue, Walker ultimately decided to confirm the pregnancy in an Instagram Live video.
“People asking me if I’m pregnant,” she said. “I am! And, you know, I’m very very very happy about it, very excited about it. It’s just, you know, really peaceful, really happy. Lots of help, lots of love, and the only reason I’m even saying anything is because, you know, last time … I felt very disrespected that people didn’t let me tell that myself.”

Summer Walker already shares a child with producer London On Da Track and this will be her first with current boyfriend LVRD Pharoh. But her co-parenting relationship with London has been rocky at best. Earlier this month, the R&B singer blasted him for his alleged inability to be a good father.
“I literally have the worst bd on the face of the planet lol I can’t wait till I can just get some peace,” she wrote in a since-deleted post. “It’s okay tho I have the most perfect bundle of joy in the world. Wouldn’t change anything about my past if I could.”
For Mother’s Day in May, London On Da Track attempted to show his appreciation for the mother of his child by buying her a bouquet of flowers, but Walker rejected the offer, telling her fans she threw them in the dumpster. As for her current pregnancy, Walker didn’t reveal her due date, but the baby is likely to arrive before 2022 is up.
