The baby will be the U.S. recording artist's first with professional basketball player Shannon Brown, whom she married in 2010.

"5 months & counting," Monica tweeted in response to Niecy Nash's weekend "Happy Mother's Day" message to her.

"Excited."

The 32-year-old R&B singer didn't reveal her baby's gender. She has two sons -- ages 7 and 5 -- with her ex-fiance, rapper Rodney "Rocko" Hill, UsMagazine.com said.

Brown, 27, has a son from a previous relationship, as well.
