July 6 (UPI) -- "Love" singer Keyshia Cole is actually not going to be a mom of two, despite suggesting on Instagram this week that she is pregnant.

"I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y'all I was ##Preggo !!!! Buuuuuuut y'all need to stop body shamming me and sayin I'm PREGNANT EVERY OTHER DAY !!!! Like seriously, it hurts my feelings HEY @fashionnova thought it was sweet that you all were excited about the news tho," she wrote in a social media post Friday.


An image of Cole laughing accompanies the message.

The 36-year-old recording artist shared a photo of herself wearing a snakeskin-print outfit Thursday.

"#PreggoInMyFashionNovaFit #CongradulationsAreInOrder @fashionnova," the star wrote.

Cole is the mother of 8-year-old Daniel Hiram with her ex-husband, former NBA player Daniel Gibson. She spent the Fourth of July holiday with her son and new boyfriend, rapper Niko Khale.

"Happy 4th yalll! We lightin up the sky tonight," Khale captioned a photo with Cole and her son Wednesday.

Cole was first linked to Khale in February, and confirmed her relationship with the rapper the next month. The couple got close in a photo Khale shared on his Instagram account in May.

"She's a winner, She's the universe," he wrote at the time.

Cole last released the album 11:11 Reset in October. She is also known for starring in Season 4 of the VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.

Correction: A previous version of this article, which referenced an Instagram photo from Cole's account, said the musician was pregnant. She has since said she was joking.
