Gospel star Kierra “KiKi” Sheard-Kelly has announced that she and her husband, Jordan Kelly, are expecting a baby.
After suffering two previous miscarriages, something that left the Grammy Award-nominated singer and actress suicidal, or as she puts it, “near death’s doors,” it appears Kierra is going to be a mother, she confirms to PEOPLE magazine.
“I am so excited and blessed to have this opportunity to carry, my prayer, and watch our baby grow,” Kierra said. “I’m most excited about raising a game changer, loving someone so deep, and having that same impact my mother had on me. I think I’ll be raising one of my best friends!”
Kierra, 35, and Jordan, 32, have been married since December 2020, and she has been praising him ever since. It was Jordan who gave her hope.
“God still showed me that He’s in charge, and to keep believing. I’ve been fearful and have worried, but God has sent me constant reminders and ways of affirmation. My husband’s faith and declarations have stood in place of my lack many times,” Kierra said.
Jordan was such a supportive husband during her difficult time that on Valentine’s Day, Kierra made a tribute post on Instagram.
“Mr. Kelly, wit’yo fiiiine self, I love you so much. Thank you for loving me like no other man has. You’ve restored me in so many ways and I’m excited to see what we’ll grow into,” Kierra wrote.
Kierra is celebrating a new milestone in addition to her expanding family – the release of her second book titled “The Vibes You Feel”. This book is geared towards young women and teenagers and focuses on the importance of listening to God’s voice, understanding intuition, and leading a life that reflects your heavenly truth. It’s an inspiring read that explores spiritual guidance in a relatable and practical way.
