The "Yummy" artist, who is one of Essence's digital cover stars this month, went on to say that it was important for her to take control over sharing the news this time around – something she wasn't able to do with her first baby, 1-year-old daughter Bubbles, whom she shares with producer London on Da Track.

Added Walker: "People were taking pictures of me in the store — I know it kind of comes with the job –… [but] people took pictures of me and sent it to The Shade Room before I could even announce my pregnancy. I thought that was very disrespectful and it made me very, very, very, very, very upset."

The star also shared a post celebrating her body on Saturday afternoon. It drew support from the likes of Ciara and Erykah Badu.

Walker – who has been romantically linked to LVRD Pharaoh since at least November – revealed that she and the rapper, whose real name is Larry, got each other's names tattooed on their faces in an Instagram post, which she simply captioned, "Bestfriend."

Before getting together with Pharaoh, Walker was in an on-and-off relationship with London on Da Track, per Complex. However, in late October, the "Playing Games" artist had revealed that she was "officially single" on her Instagram Stories, according to Hot New Hip Hop.
