Good news for Kevin Gates, who recently announced that he is expecting a baby with his wife, Dreka Gates.

The happy couple, who tied the knot back in 2015, already share a son named Khaza Kamil Gates and a daughter name Islah Koren Gates. 

In the video posted to Instagram, Kevin is seen rubbing Dreka's growing baby bump before he leans over to kiss it.

Kevin Gates has had a great year. Just two years ago, he was sentenced to 30 months in prison for a gun charge in Illinois stemming from a 2013 incident. The rapper was released early last year.

Kevin, who is a family man through and through, recently spoke about his motivations for creating a song for his daughter:

"My daughter be with me, and I talk to her like she's one of my little partners," he said on Everyday Struggle. "So I'm on the phone, and she hear me. I said, 'I don't know why dude got his pants sagging. Ain't nothing holding you down. If you don't got at least two under your belt, pull your pants up.' And she hearing me talk like this. 'Daddy, what are you talking about if he don't have two under his belt?' Man, that boy ain't got no bags. Why he sagging his pants? Ain't nothing weighing him down. I tell my daughter the truth. Your pants sagging you got a graveyard under your belt weighing you down."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
