Deejay Spice, at more than five months pregnant, is glowingly anticipating the birth of her second child with fiancé Nicholas Lall.
Speaking with THE WEEKEND STAR, the deejay said her second pregnancy was an unexpected one. She said, "it wasn't planned but I'm happy. Pregnancy is a gift from God, I didn't think I'd have any kids and here I am. This time around I'm keeping the sex of the baby as a surprise for us, its always fun to be guessing and having everyone guess what its going to be."
Already sharing a son, three-year old Nicholas Lall Jr, both Spice, real name Grace Hamilton, and her fiancee are hoping for a girl. Having recently shot the video for her single Jim Screechy while four months pregnant, not much suspicion was raised, and so Spice decided to keep her pregnancy out of the spotlight for as long as possible.
"Basically I'm trying to keep my private life on the low. The Jim Screechy song had just gotten out there and people were talking about it so I didn't want my pregnant to overshadow Spice as the artiste. Now people have been calling me saying they've been hearing the pregnancy rumours and I don't want to keep my fans in the dark any longer," she explained.
While Spice worked right through her first pregnancy, this time around she plans to 'take it easy'. She will not be taking any shows and will be missing events such as Sting in December. For the deejay, she will miss being on stage but is still as motivated as ever to not only achieve more success as a deejay but in her businesses like her store Spicey Couture, her Spicey Salon and her bar 8 Ball.
Having a lot on the table, Spice says its with the support of her fiancee and family that she manages to juggle it all. She said, "I have a really good support system, my fiancee is fabulous in terms of taking care of Nicholas (Jr). My sister and mom is always there as well."
As for plans for her wedding, Spice says that will have to wait until next year after the birth of her baby. "My fiancee he can't wait for it to happen more than ever but I insist on waiting till after the birth of this child," she said. The two have been together for four years and got officially engaged last year.
As for rumours that the two have been on rocky terms she said, "people say we're apart cause of a crazy comment I made on Facebook but yuh know every relationship has its ups and downs, but yes we're happy. The good thing is that when we have our differences we mend it easily, we can't live widdout each other."
Coming soon for Spice are singles such as Tell Me Why and Official Girl with rapper Jay Young.
