Iggy Azalea announces birth of son, fans think Playboi Carti is the father of her first child
'I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret'
There have been speculations about Iggy Azalea's baby for weeks now, and she took to Instagram to confirm that rumors. The rapper took to Instagram to confirm that she is a mother to a son with rapper Playboi Carti. On her Instagram story, she wrote, "I have a son."
In the post, she continued, "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."
Azalea also referred to all the rumors that have surfaced about her son and wrote, "I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words."
While she has confirmed that she is the mother of a child, she has not made any reference to the father of the baby. Speculations are rife that the father is her boyfriend Playboi Carter as part of rumors that spread about Azalea. It all started on May 1 when DJ Akademiks took to his Instagram to congratulate Iggy and Playboi Carti, claiming that the pair gave birth to a son. The DJ wrote on Instagram, "Congrats to Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti on the birth [of] their son this weekend."
He reportedly also added in comments "Talked to some ppl.... allegedly this is true. Congrats to #playboicarti and #iggyazalea if it is." This caught fans of rapper off-guard since they were unaware that Azalea and Carti were still dating.
Azalea's relationship with Carti has gone through many ups and downs as the rappers have been in an on and off relationship which also saw Azalea claiming on Instagram "I'm single" in 2019 which happened to be during one of their brief break up period. Yet again, the two reportedly patched up, romance was rekindled.
Before announcing the birth of her son, Azalea was conspicuously absent from Instagram for months. However, amid speculations she posted a picture of herself with toned midriff that confused her fans resulting in further speculation about whether she did give birth.
