Lauryn Hill recently announced that she is expecting her sixth child.

She made her comments at the end of a concert at Detroit's Chene Park on Saturday.

"I'm going to be taking time off to give birth," Hill told the crowd, Rolling Stone reported. Hill is reportedly in her second trimester and previously hinted at the pregnancy during a show at Los Angeles' Club Nokia in April.

"I keep having these children," Hill said at the time. "I don't know if I'm the most fertile woman in America. I've got five big children, you believe that? If you ask anybody I went to high school with, they'd be puzzled. Wait till you hear the big secret though."

There is no word on what the "big secret" is yet. The former Fugees singer has five children with Rohan Marley, 39, a son of reggae legend Bob Marley, who was married at the time they met in 1996.

Hill rose to fame as a member of the Fugees. In 1998, she launched her solo career with "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," which earned the singer five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist.

Hill, 35, and Marley's relationship status is unknown as the singer has avoided publicity since dropping out of public view in 2002, following the success of her first album. The couple have five children together, Zion David-Nesta Marley, 13, Selah Marley, 12, Joshua Marley, 9, John Marley, 8 and Sarah Marley, 3.

Hill is slated to headline the Rock the Bells tour this summer with rapper Nas. Other acts include Erykah Badu, Cypress Hill and Black Star.
