Malika Haqq is just weeks away from giving birth to her baby boy with O.T. Genasis, and though the two have kept their relationship status a secret for the past couple of months, we finally know where they stand with one another.
When the TV personality first announced her pregnancy in September, she never shared the identity of her baby’s father, but given that she had recently split from O.T. at the time, fans were quick to believe that he was the dad.
The main reason why she appeared to have refrained from addressing the elephant in the room was for the simple fact that she was no longer in a relationship with the “CoCo” hitmaker. The pair had split months prior to Malika’s announcement.
And the actress continued to remain silent on matters concerning her baby’s father identity up until her baby shower on Feb. 8 when she thanked O.T. – real name Odis Flores – for being so supportive throughout her pregnancy.
“I’m incredibly thankful to Odis Flores for my little boy,” she said of her ex-boyfriend.
And while fans were happy to see the pair share such a flourishing friendship with one another, Malika has made it clear that she’s not looking to reconcile with her ex-boyfriend.
In a lengthy statement on Instagram, the TV star shared: “Relationships don’t always work out the way we would hope but between love & friendship we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon.”
She at that point continued to address the gossipy tidbits that had coursed on the web while she stayed quiet on issues concerning her baby’s father.
Malika proceeded: “I’ve been single the last 8 months but I am in no way alone. OT and I have attended every doctor apt and overall loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival.
“My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child. Out baby would not be who he is without his father.”
So, while it doesn’t look as if there’ll be a reconciliation between Malika and O.T. Genasis, the two have managed to form a friendship, and fans can only hope that their close bond remains that way.
But as Malika already mentioned, O.T. has been supporting her throughout her pregnancy and that’s despite the fact that they were no longer seeing one another.
Not to mention that O.T. also attended his ex’s baby shower earlier this month, where Haqq had given a heartfelt speech mentioning how she’d always wanted to be a mother and that Flores had provided her with the biggest blessing.
Malika’s baby shower was reportedly filmed for upcoming episodes of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which returns with season 18 in March.
