Here’s everything we know about the Netflix star’s first pregnancy and her current boyfriend

Kelly Mi Li is starting an exciting new chapter—as a mother.

After her love life was left hanging in the third season of Netflix’s Bling Empire, the reality television star and entrepreneur has announced that she is pregnant with her first child.

Mi Li took to Instagram to break the good news. In a paid partnership post featuring Clearblue’s pregnancy test, she wrote: “Well, the mystery to why I’ve been craving sweets and not just spicy food is finally solved! We’re so beyond grateful and excited to be starting this chapter in our lives.”

For the rest of us, there is another mystery to solve: who’s the daddy?

In late October, Mi Li shared that she was seeing someone through an Instagram post. “They say when you meet the right person, you will just know,” she wrote. “I never understood the depth of this quote until he walked [into] my life. I have never felt so supported, loved, fulfilled and cared for, nor did I know this kind of love was even possible. Happy anniversary to my best friend and partner in life.”

While Mi Li did not reveal the identity of her new boyfriend, she did confirm that he is the father of her baby in an interview with People.

“When we found out, it was actually kind of shocking,” said Mi Li. “We talked about having kids earlier but we were going to start trying [at] the end of the year… We just really didn’t think it was going to happen so fast because I’m a little worried because I’m 36, I just turned 37.”

Things are certainly looking optimistic for Mi Li, which may come as a relief for Bling Empire fans. On the latest season of the show, which was released on October, Mi Li was seen going on a series of dates although she didn’t end up in a relationship with any one of them. The show also featured the return of her abusive ex-boyfriend, Andrew Gray, but Mi Li ultimately chose not to get back together with him.

According to her interview with People, Mi Li had already found her current partner when the season aired on Netflix.

“When we filmed the season, it takes a while to come out,” she said. “So it’s funny when the season came out, we actually already celebrated our anniversary, our one-year anniversary.”

We might get a glimpse of Mi Li’s mystery man (and even her baby!) on season four of Bling Empire, which is expected to drop in 2023. For now, though, we’re keeping our eyes on her Instagram.
