Danity Kane is down another member. Aundrea Fimbres announced she's engaged and leaving the group to start a family during their kick-off #DKNoFilterTour concert in San Francisco, Calif., May 16.

"I do have to say one thing, if you guys don't know: I just recently got engaged," the pop star told the audience. "I can tell you that two dreams of mine [have] been to be a singer and be on stage like this and to have a family. Well, in a couple months, that's all coming true. I'm about to get married and I have this beautiful new little girl with me," Fimbres said before introducing her future stepdaughter.

"I've gotten to do some amazing things with Danity Kane," Fimbres continued, "but it's time for me to start the next chapter in my life. So I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart...I love you so much. And I just wanted you guys to know from me." Referring to Danity Kane's Shannon Bex, Aubrey O'Day and Dawn Richard, Fimbres said, "They are going to kill it for you while I go and have some babies."

Prior to the performance, many people speculated that Fimbres had quit after the "Lemonade (feat. Tyga)" cover art was released. The photo shows three young girls, who are presumably imitating Bex, O'Day and Richard, working at a lemonade stand, leaving an empty space where Fimbres should be.

Last year, four of the five original announced they would reunite without the involvement of Diddy, who assembled the girl group on MTV's Making the Band. Danity Kane's fifth member, D. Woods, declined to return in order to focus on her solo career, but she later claimed she wasn't invited back.

Danity Kane's 13-date U.S. tour resumes May 18 and continues through early June.
