Lil Kim wants her baby to have ''everything''.

The 40-year-old rapper - who gave birth to her first child, Royal Reign, in June this year - has revealed that she wants the best for her five-month-old daughter.

She told HipHollywood: ''After I had my baby, I was like, 'I have to get right to it ...

''I have to make sure that that baby has everything and doesn't want for nothing.'''

Royal's father, rapper Mr. Papers, shared a cute picture of his baby girl not long after she was born, captioning it: ''Everybody say hi to my beautiful a** daughter Miss Royal ... #LilPapers my lil Scooby snack. [sic]''

The 'Thug' hitmaker also recently dubbed pregnancy as ''expensive'' but ''beautiful''.

She said: ''[Pregnancy] is the most expensive gift God has ever given me and the most beautiful gift God has ever given me.''

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old rapper has spoken out about reuniting with her fellow 'Not Tonight' singers, Missy Elliot and Da Brat, as they prepare to hit the stage together for the first time since 1998.

The three girls will perform the hit song at the Soul Train Awards, which will take place in Las Vegas on November 30th.

Lil Kim said: ''I'm just really excited to see my friends.

''Missy Elliot is my sister. She's a longterm friend and just someone that I love dearly.''
