Pregnant rapper Lil Kim's longtime boyfriend Mr. Papers has identified himself as the father of her unborn baby by poking fun at reports speculating about the child's paternity.
The Lighters Up hitmaker stunned fans and onlookers on Wednesday (12Feb14) after showing off her growing baby bump while attending New York Fashion Week.
She confirmed her exciting news to UsMagazine.com, revealing she was "a few months along", but failed to name the tot's father - leaving many wondering who the baby's daddy was.
But aspiring rapper/producer Mr. Papers, who has been dating Kim on and off for the past few years, has made light of the 'mystery' on his Twitter.com blog, sharing a photo of himself with his cap pulled down low alongside the caption, "I heard everybody looking for me (sic)?????????????????".
He has also changed his Twitter name to "Daddy" and retweeted a string of congratulatory messages from fans and friends, including one from a photographer pal named Donte, who wrote, "Heard All LiL Kim Fans are Looking For My Dawg @Mr_Papers LoL (laugh out loud) Congratz Homie!!! ...#KnewAbout3MonthsAgo #HelditDown (sic)".
Responding to another note about the "royal baby", he jokes, "royal is a good name for the lil homie (sic)".
Kim has also been flaunting their relationship online, sharing photos of herself with Mr. Papers on her various social networking blogs.
