Despite rumors swirling about the couple expecting a baby, Ashanti revealed to ET that neither she nor her partner were aware of her pregnancy at the time, chalking it up to a mere coincidence.

“When he blurted that out on the stage, we actually did not know. I hadn’t even taken a test at that time,” she reveals. She goes on to explain that there was no showing belly that she placed her hands on, she was just trying to adjust the pendant on her black dress.
