Jhene Aiko PREGNANT with Big Sean's baby, flaunts baby bump in maxi dress
Jhené Aiko and her longtime boyfriend, rapper Big Sean, are expecting their first child. Aiko, 34, was photographed on Saturday, June 2 out for lunch with the "Blessings" hitmaker while donning a tight grey maxi dress. This was the first time she had publicly displayed her burgeoning baby bump. The couple smiled as they left a Beverly Hills restaurant together and seemed to be having a fantastic day.
A spokesperson told Fox News Digital, "The couple are overjoyed and look forward to this next chapter." For the afternoon out in Los Angeles, the 'Above and Beyond' singer carried a woven handbag at her side and kept her wavy hair pulled back in a loose ponytail while wearing a pair of white Birkenstock sandals. Sean, whose full name is Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, wore khaki slacks, a white T-shirt, and a trucker hat. Check out Aiko's baby bump pics here.
While this is Sean's first child, Aiko is a mother of 13-year-old Namiko Love Browner, who was born out of a prior relationship with singer O'Ryan. Aiko and O'Ryan started dating as teens in 2005, and since their divorce in 2008, they have shared custody of their child. Aiko was also married to Dot da Genius, a music producer, for two years before filing for divorce in 2017. Sean, on the other hand, has had relationships with Ariana Grande and the late 'Glee' actress Naya Rivera.
Sean and Aiko have been good friends for a very long time; they met in 2010 and have maintained their relationship ever since. Sean first made the public aware of it by declaring, "Jhené is more than just a friend. I love her and I know she loves me." Just two months later, the couple also exchanged their infamous kiss live on stage.
The couple began dating in 2016, in addition to working together on a number of songs professionally over the years, including Sean's 2013 hit 'Beware' and the 2020 single 'Body Language.' Additionally, they collaborated on recordings under the name Twenty88, releasing an album in 2016. Fans assumed his 2020 single, 'Deep Reverence' alluded to the couple's miscarriage tragedy.
A few years ago, there were widespread social media rumors that the couple had split up owing to certain irreconcilable differences. While the couple never admitted to it, later in 2020 there were reports that the Covid-19 pandemic helped the hip-hop couple to mend their differences. In an interview, Aiko had revealed that the core of her relationship with Sean is a strong friendship.
