For the past few months, fans of female rap artist, Iggy Azalea, talked about her being pregnant. Rumors flew all around about her pregnancy. However, she would never admit that she was. Until yesterday when she confirmed the birth of her first child with her rapper boyfriend, Playboi Carti.
That’s right! The rumors that Iggy refused to admit to were true the whole time, but she kept her pregnancy a secret from everyone. Until yesterday, June 10, when she posted about the birth of their first-born child on her Instagram story.
According to the female rapper, she said on her Instagram story, “I have a son. 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.”
Although the news is out about the baby now, Azalea made it perfectly clear that she would not be putting her child in the spotlight. He will live a very private life.
She said, “I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words.”
Although she did let her fans know that she gave birth, she hasn’t revealed his name yet or even when he was born. In fact, her most recent post before this one was when she was celebrating her birthday on June 7.
The pregnancy rumors started all the way back in December 2019. But, she quickly shot those rumors down by posting a picture of herself wearing a red bikini. She definitely wasn’t pregnant back then. So, fans are left in the dark about when the baby was born and what his name is for now.
Iggy and Carti met overseas while she was touring and started dating in 2018. During the summer of 2019, Carti revealed that he had moved in with Azalea in December 2018, which was just a few months after they started dating.
Carti said, “Once I started talking to her, I just cut off everybody. It was over with.”
There is an age gap between the two, as well. Azalea is 30 and Carti is 23.
Since they have a baby together, will they get married soon?
Not only were there rumors swirling around about Iggy being pregnant, there have also been rumors going around about the couple being engaged. The reason for these rumors though, is because of Iggy showing off a huge diamond ring she was wearing on Instagram.
One of her fans asked her, “Playboi put a ring on it? Or are you spoiling yourself?”
With her showing the ring off again, this time during an appearance on a show in the UK called The X Change Rate it seems they may be engaged but she just won’t admit it.
During her appearance on this show, she showed off the huge diamond ring which she was wearing on her left ring finger. She was asked during the show if she was single and she said, while waving hr hand up showing the ring, “No, I’m not. I’m not.” However, she still doesn’t admit the couple is engaged.
She is keeping her relationship with Carti very private. She was previously linked to NBA star, Nick Young but the relationship was over once she found out he had cheated on her.
