Rapper Ludacris is reportedly expecting his first child with his new wife, Eudoxie Mbouguiengue.

The Area Codes hitmaker, real name Christopher Bridges, proposed to his longtime girlfriend on Christmas Eve (24Dec14) and they walked down the aisle just hours later.

Now reports suggest Eudoxie's pregnancy was the reason for the whirlwind engagement and wedding, according to Bossip.com. She is rumoured to be six months along and fuelled the claims during a dinner date in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday (13Feb15), when she was photographed in a restaurant with what appeared to be a baby belly.

Ludacris' wife was careful not to expose her bump earlier in the evening, when she posted a snap of herself wearing a loose-fitting white blouse and big grey coat on Instagram.com.

The couple has yet to comment on the pregnancy rumours, which come a month after Ludacris won primary custody of a baby girl he conceived with former lover Tamika Fuller.

He also has a teenage daughter, named Karma, from another previous relationship.
