The Pretty Girls hitmaker has been dating Jourdan on and off since she featured in his music video for his 2010 song Diary, and now it appears the couple is set to welcome a baby.

Jourdan's sister has been sharing photos of the model's growing baby bump on her social media pages, but the parents-to-be have yet to officially comment on the news.

Wale is known for keeping his personal life private, but last year (15), he opened up about an ex-girlfriend who suffered a miscarriage during their relationship, which caused him to fall into a depression.

He also touched on the tough subject in his Usher collaboration The Matrimony, but he didn't name the former lover in question.

"The girl I was with, we tried for a long time to have a child," he told Billboard magazine. "And when she finally did (fall pregnant), she miscarried at 10 or 11 weeks."

Wale admitted the tragic loss hit him hard as he had already started imagining life with his own kid: "I was visualising my child's face. We gave it a name and everything. All of that went away."
