Cassie is going to be a mom.
Just eight months after calling it quits with her boyfriend of over a decade, Sean "Diddy" Combs, the 32-year-old singer announced that she's expecting her first child with her boyfriend Alex Fine.
"We couldn't be more excited and happy to have this little girl come into our lives," the couple said in a joint statement to E! News on Thursday (June 13). "We are so blessed."
With Cassie's pregnancy news coming less than a year after her split from Diddy, many wondered what the business mogul thought of the news. Well, wait no more because a source close to the music producer spilled all the tea to E! News.
"Diddy wants happiness for Cassie and her new chapter. He wants to be neutral with her, and she will always have a place in his heart," the insider told the entertainment news site following her announcement. "Diddy has changed his perspective on life since the passing of Kim Porter and truly wants everyone to be happy."
The sourced continued that while he "was not surprised" he "didn't think it would happen this fast." Adding, "Cassie always wanted to have kids, and adored Diddy's children like they were her own."
As fans know, Cassie began dating Alex shortly after her split from Diddy last year. The soon-to-be first-time parents became Instagram official in December after she shared a photo of the two enjoying the holidays with her family. In an Instagram post of what appeared to be a photo of a strip of pictures taken in a photo booth, Cassie and Alex were shown making out in a picture just below one featuring the two standing beside Cassie's mom.
