He’s here! Khloé Kardashian‘s longtime best friend Malika Haqq has given birth to her first child with ex-boyfriend O.T. Genasis. The duo announced the arrival of their son on Instagram, revealing the baby’s name is Ace Flores. In the post, shared on Malika Haqq’s social media on Monday, she told fans she gave birth on Saturday, March 14. Showcasing a sweet snap of the baby’s tiny hand laying in the palms of his mommy and daddy, Malika Haqq shared the exciting news.
“Ace Flores 3.14.2020,” she captioned the adorable family photo. Ace marks the first child for the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star but the rapper’s second kid. O.T. Genasis is already dad to his son, Genasis, who turns 10 later this month. Fans are going wild for Malika Haqq’s birth announcement, especially Khoé Kardashian’s famous sisters. “ace!!!!!! i can’t wait to meet him!!??,” Kylie Jenner wrote. “Life is beautiful can’t wait to smell him ?” Kourtney Kardashian replied. Kendall Jenner commented, “congrats!!! love you!”
Malika Haqq revealed she was pregnant back in September but purposely left the baby daddy’s identity out when speaking to PEOPLE about becoming a mother. O.T. Genasis finally confirmed he was the baby’s father when he posted several photos with Malika Haqq from the shower. While the duo have welcomed their brand new son, she recently set the record straight on where their relationship stands by announcing she was single throughout her whole pregnancy. The duo has been linked for over two years, but most recently said they broke up in June so fans were shocked when months later, Malika Haqq announced she was pregnant.
While the duo may not be together anymore, she said they vowed to co-parent together. Posting a snap of them from her baby shower, Malika Haqq captioned the photo, “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 added, “I’ve been single the last 8 months but I am in no way alone. OT and I have attended every doctors apt and over all loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival.” Congrats!
