*Despite the rumors, R&B singer and newlywed Monica, is not getting ready to have a baby. She and her hubby, LA Lakers guard, Shannon Brown are content with the family they have now.

Although there’s no baby on the radar right now, they do look forward to expanding their family in the future.

When asked if she and Shannon would be having children together later she replied:

“Absolutely. I’m young, he’s young and we want to have that between the two of us. Right now we are enjoying the three that we have blended together.”

The rumor came from the singer’s appearance at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul 3rd Annual “Women Behind the Music” event where some thought she was concealing a baby bump.

Now that the rumor is cleared, her next album, “New Life,” is due out Feb. 21.
