Earlier this year, Malika Haqq had the most lavish and beautiful baby shower to celebrate her coming bundle of joy. She also shocked fans with the news that the father of her child, was none other than her ex-boyfriend, O.T. Genasis. While she had waited to reveal the identity of the baby’s father, Haqq does not regret her decision.
In regards to sharing the news, a source close to Haqq told HollywoodLife that, “Malika is really happy she made the decision to reveal to everyone that Odis is the father of her baby.”
“It just makes things easier all around, because she no longer feels the need to hide any aspect of her pregnancy. It takes a big weight off her shoulders,” the source said. The also added that the two are on a “very health path toward co-parenting” regardless of the fact that they broke up more than 8 months ago. Despite the split, Haqq and her ex appear to be on great terms as they prepare for their little boy to make his arrival.
Earlier in February, Haqq took to her Instagram story to discuss the relationship with her ex. She wrote, “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…OT and I have attended every doctors apt and overall loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival.”
While Haqq is thankful to have the support of her former partner, the source noted that she would have been ok even if she didn’t.
The source noted that Haqq had, “tons of love and support from everyone in her life.”
“Malika’s thrilled that her ex wanted to step up to the plate and be a dad, but she was fine either way. With or without him, she feels incredibly blessed and totally ready to be a mom,” the source stated.
Of course, a lot of that love and support comes from Haqq’s longtime best friend, Khloe Kardashian. The source said that Kardashian has been Haqq’s ride or die throughout the entire pregnancy, and that she cannot wait to see her bestie become a mom.
“Khloe’s right there [with Malika] every step of the way. She’s so thoughtful and sweet. She sends [Malika] flowers and sweet little gifts, like her favorite cookies,” the source explained.
While Haqq and O.T. Gensasis may not be linked romantically any longer, the two are providing the public with a shining example of what healthy co-parenting can look like. While Haqq’s friends and fans cannot wait to meet her little boy, they are taking advantage of all of the beautiful Instagram posts of her pregnant belly in the meantime.
