Sexyy Red gagged fans in October when she announced her pregnancy. At the time, sis made it clear she was “tired of fakin.” Now, it turns out she wasn’t just keeping fans out of her womb business but tour production and her staff too!
In a sit-down with Billboard, Sexyy Red opened up about hiding her pregnancy and the literal pain it caused her!
Sexyy explained that when “no one knew” she was baby bumpin’, she’d be hiding from staff trying to “suck [her] stomach in.” She confirmed that she was pregnant while touring with Drake and also Moneybagg Yo.
To keep the bump hidden, she intentionally wore clothes that didn’t frame the bump and practiced hiding it on stage.
“And I’d have to practice my breathing, like before I go on stage” Sexyy Red shared. “I’d have to hold my stomach in and look at myself and be like, ‘Can they tell.’ And then, once, I just like ‘Okay, I can’t keep hiding it’ cause it hurt to just be on stage on all day holding that stomach in.”
That pain led her to just “forget about it” and let everyone in on the news. The “only reason” she hid the pregnancy was to have that private experience with her close family and friends.
