Rapper Iggy Azalea is a mom! The Aussie artist, 30, welcomed her first child with boyfriend Playboi Carti, 23, earlier this year, and she finally confirmed the news on June 10. She shared the exciting announcement on her Instagram Story. “I have a son,” she wrote. “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.”
She added, “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 did not expand on the situation, or reveal her son’s name. Throughout Iggy’s entire pregnancy, she never confirmed that she was expecting. However, fans began speculating that she had a baby on the way back in December 2019. Rumors first surfaced that Iggy had given birth at the end of April.
Despite the pregnancy rumors last year, though, the rapper continued to share photos of herself without any sign of a baby bump. On Dec. 20, she took to Instagram to post a picture of herself lounging poolside during the holidays. Though fans had speculated she was expecting, it looked as though Iggy was pleasantly putting her toned abs on display for the world to see — sans baby bump. “Hard to believe it’s almost Christmas with weather like this,” the rapper captioned the image during her tropical getaway in Indonesia.
Just a few weeks after the baby was rumored to have been born, Iggy returned to social media after a four-month hiatus. She began posting photos of her toned stomach once again, leaving fans wondering whether she had actually given birth or not. Now, we finally know the truth!
However, this happy moment came in the wake of a difficult circumstance for Iggy and Playboi. On April 2, Playboi was arrested on drug and traffic charges. She has not commented on the arrest. Playboi and Iggy were first linked after they were spotted dining out to dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills in September 2017. Since that time, the pair have kept a low-profile but have been spotted showing off their PDA in the past. Congrats to the new parents!
