Lil' Kim revealed this week that she's pregnant—but she hasn't said who the father is, so let the speculation begin. A New York musician who goes by "Mr. Papers" is implying he's the dad—he's been saying for a while that he and the rapper are a couple, and has tweeted pictures of them together. (They were first linked in June 2012, E! reports.) After news of the pregnancy broke, he began retweeting tweets pinning him as the dad. But sources tell the New York Daily News Lil' Kim has also been involved with boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., and many think he's the most likely dad—though he's engaged to another woman.

Kim has been visiting Mayweather in Las Vegas, and her 4.5-month pregnancy apparently fits in with the timeline of her visits. But she says they're just best friends. One source says the father will be revealed on Kim's reality show, which starts taping in March, and an insider thinks the rapper is just using the mystery to promote the show and her upcoming album (More Lil' Kim stories.)
