There were rumors running rampant for months suggesting Iggy Azalea was pregnant with Playboi Carti’s child, but nothing was ever confirmed — until now. The Aussie rapper finally confessed she indeed was pregnant and is now the proud mother of a baby boy.
“I have a son,” she wrote in her Instagram Stories. “I kept waiting for the right time to say something but it feels like the more time passes the more I realize I’m always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world. I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret and I love him beyond words.”
Iggy, who was previously engaged to NBA star Nick Young, reportedly started dating Carti in 2018. Last December, she apologized to her fans in one of her Instagram Stories for insinuating they’d broken up.
“I need to make an apology,” she wrote. “It’s not my character to put out whatever business I go through in my private life on the internet for the world to comment on. I felt very upset and I made an impulse choice I immediately regretted, but it was too late to undo.”
The statuesque mother of one perhaps took a note from Drake who was accused of hiding his son in the Pusha T diss track “Story Of Adidon.” The big reveal caused a slew of controversy and put Drake in the hot seat.
After opening up about his child on the 2018 Scorpion album, he has since warmed up to talking about his son Adonis on social media. In March, he shared the first few photos of Adonis to his Instagram page.
Iggy has yet to confirm who the father of her son is.
