Kevin Gates and his wife Dreka Gates are expanding their family!

The NOLA native made the baby announcement in a touching video of him and his lady love he posted to Instagram last night (December 29). “What’s meant to be is meant be,” Kevin wrote in the caption, hinting at the news with the hashtag “InDaSlowCooker.” In the clip itself, the musician hugs his wife, who appears in laid-back leisure attire, before bending down to plant a kiss on her baby bump, jokingly teasing that she has “something in the slow cooker.”

Check out the adorable announcement clip down below.

The “2 Phones” star wed his longtime girlfriend in October 2015. For the married couple, their newest member of Kevin and Dreka’s family will make baby number three. As fans know, he has two known children with Dreka including daughter Islah Koren Gates and son Khaza Kamil Gates. 

In 2013, the emcee reportedly alluded to having children by other women in an interview with Complex. “I got some children. I'm real, real close with them. I lay in the bed with them, hold them, love on them,” he said at the time. It really doesn't make sense to say [how many kids I have]. Not in a bad way, but it's not like the public will ever get to see my children, and if they do see them, they aren't going to know they're mine."

Congrats to the happy couple!
