Malika Haqq is just weeks away from welcoming her baby boy, and while she hasn’t been shy to flaunt her growing baby bump on social media, fans had been left in the dark on details concerning the father of her child.
When the TV star announced her pregnancy in September 2019, Malika surprisingly made no mention of the baby’s father. But it didn’t take long for people to figure out who it may be seeing that Haqq had shared an on-again, off-again romance with rapper O.T. Genasis.
The couple had been together for almost two years before reports claimed in June 2019 that their relationship had fallen flat, with Malika and Genasis both coming to the agreement that they just needed some time apart from one another.
But it seemed as if the two weren’t aware at the time of their split that Malika was expecting her firstborn with the “CoCo” hitmaker. So when she finally shared the news about her pregnancy, Haqq chose to remain silent about anything relating to her baby’s dad.
And ever since, comments from eager fans have not stopped pouring in on Malka’s official Instagram page, with hundreds of people questioning the TV personality as to why she was keeping the identity of her child’s father out of the limelight.
Well, all of that changed on Feb. 8, when Malika brought up O.T. Genasis – real name Odis Flores – in a heartfelt speech in front of her closest friends and family members.
“Everything within this room basically knows my journey and how bad I wanted [this baby],” Malika expressed at the occurrence. “This is the reason why I didn’t want anyone else to speak because I knew I would cry if anyone else said to me what was on their heart.”
“Whether you brought me to lunch or called me or texted me… I’m incredibly thankful to Odis Flores for my little boy,” she continued while the likes of best friend Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner sat in attendance.
Malika’s sister, Khadijah, and Kris Jenner were also at the bash to celebrate.
This is the first time that Malika has publicly confirmed that O.T. Genasis is her baby’s father, and the lengthy delay to break the news so late had left a lot of people puzzled.
One user had taken to Malika’s official Instagram page, stressing: “Ummm, so why did you wait so long to share what most of us already knew anyway? You could’ve shared this with us months ago.”
Another fan continued: “Finally! I’m still trying to work out why you didn’t just say O.T. was the father, to begin with. You gave a lot of people doubt that it was someone else’s baby. Lol.”
Whatever the case may be, Malika Haqq is gearing up for the birth of her baby boy, who is due in just a few more weeks, according to sources.
