The 30-year-old singer - who already has a five-year-old daughter called Royalty Brown with model Nia Amey - is expecting a child with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris, according to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column.

Chris has recently been hinting at his baby news on social media, even referring to Ammika as his "baby mama".

It's been reported, too, that Chris' relationship with Ammika - who he's not currently dating - played a role in his split from his most-recent girlfriend, Indyamarie.

Before becoming a father, Chris was also involved in a high-profile relationship with fellow pop star Rihanna.

However, in 2009, Chris assaulted his then-girlfriend in a car after a pre-Grammy's party, with Rihanna subsequently saying she had to "fend him off".

She said: "I fended him off with my feet. He had no soul in his eyes. Just blank. He was clearly blacked-out. There was no person when I looked at him. It was almost as if he had nothing to lose. He had so much to lose. It wasn't the same person that says I love you. It definitely wasn't those eyes.

"I was battered, I was bleeding, I was swollen in the face. So there was no way of me getting home, except ... to get out of the car and walk. Start walking in a gown, in a bloody face."

Chris - who also previously dated model Karrueche Tran - was sentenced to five years of probation, one year of domestic violence therapy, and six months of community service for the assault, which he completed in March 2015.
