TLC's Chilli is taking on a new role soon, as the singer will become a grandmother for the first time at the age of 52.

Chilli, whose real name is Rozonda Thomas, is entering a new phase of her life as her son, Tron Austin, 26, and his wife, Jeong Ah Wang, are expecting their first child.

Austin announced the news on Instagram with a photo featuring a board reading, "Hello @Baby Luna due March 2024 xo," above a box with an ultrasound photo and a note in Korean that said, "Thank you for coming to Mom and Dad."

The board was also surrounded by a bunch of needles and vials as well as a baby onesie that read, "Made with a lot of faith & a little science," with the positive pregnancy test placed on top.
