Lil’ Kim throws baby shower

Lil’ Kim is preparing for her lil’ one in a big way.

Born Kimberly Jones, the rapper, who is pregnant with a baby girl, had one majorly over-the-top baby shower in New York this weekend.

The Grammy winner, 39, raised eyebrows when she got her fans in on the action, sending out information about her high-priced baby registries. </p>

According to Us Weekly, her assistant put a photo on Instagram with information on where the gifts could be purchased and where they should be sent, and a note to check gifts off from the registry.

Kim is registered under her birth name at Tiffany & Co., Petit Tresor, Buy Buy Baby, Bel Bambini and Babies ‘R’ Us. Her lists include two $7,899 strollers in different colors.

The star may be in need of a shopping trip, however, as the large majority of her items still remain unfulfilled on her registries.
