Lil' Kim's going to have a lil' girl!

The pregnant rapper announced her baby-to-be's gender reveal on Easter Sunday, Instagramming a Save the Date for her May 10 baby shower.

"Happy Easter everyone !!!!" Kim wrote alongside the "It's a Girl" royal-themed graphic with a jeweled crown, Hello Kitty cat and plenty of pink. "What a perfect day to share this wonderful news with U. The fab @davidtutera (event planner) is throwing my royal baby shower for my lil' princess 5/10/14!!!"

The 39-year-old self-proclaimed "Queen of Rap" first announced her pregnancy news in February at a MAC Cosmetics afterparty during New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, telling E! News, "My little boo boo is coming! My little baby boo, my sunshine!"


And while Lil' Kim has yet to officially confirm her baby daddy's identity, New York-based rapper Mr. Papers is taking all the credit! He's been romantically linked to Lil' Kim off and on since June 2012, and within hours of her baby news reveal, he tweeted coyly, "I heard everybody looking for me ?????????????????"

Since then, though, mama Kim's remained silent, but Mr. Papers has been retweeting stories being the father, and the maybe-baby daddy has granted interviews confirming his paternity status.

In any case, we're excited for Lil' Kim and her lil' princess-in-the-making!
