Rapper T.I. (real name Clifford Harris) and his on again, off again girlfriend Tameka "Tiny" Cottle of the '90s R&B group Xscape, are expecting another child together, the musician's rep confirms.
Cottle, 32, recently posted the news that the couple are expecting a baby boy on her personal Myspace page, which has garnered many congratulatory comments from friends and fans.
This will be the fifth child for T.I., 27, and his second with Cottle. The couple are already parents to son King Harris, 3.
News of the pregnancy comes in the middle of T.I.'s house arrest sentence in Georgia for illegal weapons charges. The rapper was arrested
last October for allegedly trying to buy machine guns and silencers. He was released on a $3 million bond until the outcome of his trial, which is still pending, but must be under home confinement.
