Elaborate shoots have been the go-to way for celebrities to announce their pregnancy to fans, particularly after Beyonce’s floral images to reveal her pregnancy with twins in 2017 went viral.

Young Lyric is the latest artist to follow in Queen B’s footsteps in a shoot with her baby daddy Shakur Stevenson, donning a pink floral bra and underwear set with huge peach fluffy angel wings.

The rapper has been in the spotlight since she was a child in 2010, when she uploaded her cover of Young Jeezy’s Lose My Mind and went viral after WorldStarHipHop reposted it.

Ten years later, the star is expecting, leaving fans wondering how old she is now.

Age and career explored

Young Lyric hails from Houston, Texas, and was born 30 July 2000, making her 21 years old.

She garnered attention aged ten after posting her own remix covers to her YouTube channel. Her earliest videos were made at home with her friends as back-up dancers, while Young Lyric took centre stage with her rapping talent.

They were adorable and you knew she was was destined for big things.

Young Lyric released her first original tracks in 2015 – 2Fresh2Fly and That’s All Folks. Her latest drop, Big Racks, is a lot more professional, obviously.

Young Lyric, real name Lyric Michelle Ragston, was destined for music stardom as she grew up in the studio thanks to her father and uncle.

“They were always writing and recording, and I always felt I would grow up and be a rapper too,” she said.

Ragston took home the 2018 Female Hip Hop Artist Of The Year award at the GO-DJ Awards and the Broadcast Houston Awards.

The 21-year-old also appeared on Queen Latifah and Jermaine Dupri’s reality show The Rap Game in 2016.

Since then, they’ve been flaunting their love on social media as they jet around the country.
