It was a very special weekend for Summer Walker: in addition to headlining “A Hot Summer Night in LA” Friday at the Crypto.com Arena featuring Jazmine Sullivan and Ari Lennox, she also revealed she’s pregnant.

Numerous fans asked if the “No Love” singer was expecting after she posted photos on Instagram Friday night in which she appeared to have a small baby bump. Saturday she made it official during an Instagram Live video.

“People asking me if I’m pregnant … I am and you know I’m very, very, very, very, happy about it,” the 26-year-old entertainer said. “I’m very, very excited because it’s going to be different from how it was before. It’s really peaceful, really happy, lots of help, lots of love.”

Summer, who has a 15-month-old daughter named Bubbles, says she made sure she announced her pregnancy this time after being angry about how her first pregnancy became public.

“Last time I felt very disrespected that people didn’t let me tell that myself,” she commented. “People were taking pictures of me in the store — I know it kind of comes with the job … [but] people took pictures of me and sent it to The Shade Room before I could even announce my pregnancy. I thought that was very disrespectful and it made me very, very, very, very, very upset.”

Walker is performing Saturday, July 2, at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, and she is one of the Essence June digital cover stars. Monday afternoon, she also announced two new shows on The Summer Walker Series Part II tour. The Billboard Women in Music award winner will perform August 6 in New York City and August 17 in Detroit. The tour wraps up September 2 in Las Vegas.
