Lemonon then revealed that she is pregnant with a baby boy by giving a glimpse of her child’s gender-reveal party, as well as Mercado kissing her baby bump, as seen on her Instagram page, also yesterday.

“Our baby boy #KingZ. I’ve always imagined myself having a little baby boy, for it to actually happen is a surreal feeling,” she admitted. “[Sol Mercado] you are an amazing [life partner, friend and] now papa, thank you for another priceless gift in helping me become a mama.”
