“I had no idea he was going to be there. I haven’t seen him or spoken to him since we broke up. I don’t know if it’s six years or something, so I didn’t know what to expect”. She continued, “That’s the crazy thing, wasn’t nothing said. I seen him walking, his eyes got big, I didn’t know what to expect. It was positive.”

Having an open heart and being positive is always great. Congratulations Ashanti and Nelly on your engagement as well as expecting your first child together. Ashanti you look absolutely beautiful, you are glowing and pregnancy looks great on you. Wishing you two the very best on this next chapter in your lives.
