Iggy Azalea could not be more in love with her one and only son, Onyx Kelly, and she plans to prove that with a permanent print.
Azalea welcomed the bouncing baby boy on June 10, 2020. He is fathered by her estranged former lover and fellow rapper Playboy Carti.
The “Go Hard or Go Home” artist recently took to her social media with details of a tattoo ink inspiration for her son’s portrait, which she was about to get drawn!
Iggy Azalea Displays Realistic Tattoo Inspiration of Her Son’s Face
Azalea is about to have her baby with her no matter where she goes, as she teased an impending tattoo print of his sweet face on Friday, April 15.
“The New Classic” artist shared a monochrome image of a tattoo parlor on her Instagram Story. Next to a chair sat a frame of a picture that was about to be inked on her skin.
The photo depicted Onyx as an angel complete with the sash and read “Onyx Orion” in bold black calligraphy.
The loving mother could not wait to have her son’s likeness drawn on her body and admitted to her followers that the process she was about to embark on was “Long overdue!”
Azalea’s love for her toddler makes her very protective, especially of internet critics. Last year, she made it known she would not stand for any bullying directed toward him.
Last July, The Blast disclosed that the “In My Defence” artist declared that she would no longer treat internet users to photos of Onyx after he became the subject of mockery over his outfit.
Azalea had uploaded a photo of her son crawling on the floor to her and playing with his toys while dressed in a green dinosaur costume. She captioned the post, “His outfit of choice today,” with a tear-face emoji.
Following the unexpected backlash, the “Black Widow” artist took to her Twitter page to issue a warning to critics. She wrote:
“I’ve decided I won’t be posting about onyx or sharing images online anymore. Y’all not about to be out here playing with my baby on my watch, nope!”
Azalea’s followers began asking why she did not pick better outfits for her son’s photos, and she replied:
“Imagine being so miserable that you bully a one-year-old child for picking his own outfit. Y’all so corny and bored, and it’s really a d*** shame.”
Fans of Carti began asking where he is and why he does not contribute to his son’s outfit choices. She replied:
“My child is not a sub-brand for his father’s fans to obsess over or clown on because the reality is that y’all don’t like his mom… Know that I will smack you in person, and so will his dad.”
“The End of An Era” Rapper Slammed Playboy Carti’s Support Claims
Earlier this month, Carti appeared in an interview where he claimed to love and support Azalea and their son, but she swiftly debunked the rumors.

The former lovers were linked in 2018 and split a year later due to the baby daddy’s cheating allegations. The mother-of-one has since been vocal about being a sole caretaker since then.
The Blast shared that during his cover for XXL Spring 2022 Issue, the “Magnolia” soloist was asked, “How do you like being a dad? How has that been for you?”
Carti replied, “I pay a lot of bills. I take care of a lot of people. I take care of my mom. I take care of my family. I take care of my baby mom [and] I take care of my son.”
The Shade Room shared a series of screenshots where Azalea refuted all his claims. She wrote in one slide, “Take care of me? Lmaooooo, let’s not get carried away now.”
The 31-year-old continued, “Secondly, saying nice things for an interview sounds great, but in real life, he talks to me like a sl*t so badly I had to stop all direct contact.”
Carti called his baby mama “the best mother in the world” and said his son was too perfect while mentioning he loved her.
Azalea stated that the sweet words were not their reality, and she would prefer to be left out of such interviews. She concluded, “let me log off. I’m a peaceful person, I promise.”
