Who is Desiree Lindstrom? Inside DMX's love story with his fiancé and his 15 children
Rapper and actor DMX was in a very serious condition at a hospital following a heart attack, says his lawyer Murray Richman. Richman confirmed that he didn't know whether the heart attack was brought on by a drug overdose but now DMX is off life support and is breathing on his own.
DMX is engaged to Desiree Lindstrom, the mother of his five-year-old son, Exodus. Just a few days before this sad news, Lindstrom posted a photo of the couple on Instagram, writing, "My fiancé! I love u..."
DMX proposed Lindstrom at their son's third birthday party. As of April 2021, the couple has been together for around eight years and has been engaged for almost two. DMX and Lindstorm share a five-year-old son, Exodus, who is DMX's youngest child. Lindstrom kept a low profile before dating DMX and, despite their long-term relationship, Lindstrom has essentially remained out of the spotlight. In an Instagram post from February 2020, Lindstrom wrote, "Their bond and love is all I could of wanted out of my life as being a mother... thank u God for such a blessing for sending me a wonderful man that is a wonderful father to our son"
Lindstorm always showers love on DMX through her Instagram posts. In one of the posts that she made on his birthday, she said, "SCREAMING HAPPY BIRTHDAY...to my friend, my baby zaddy lol, my FIANCÉ! I love u to the moon and back and I know u love me too, to the moon and back regardless of what anybody thinks!

According to reports, DMX has fifteen children. He shares four children with his ex-wife Tashera Simmons. DMX and Tashera were married for 15 years, from 1999 to 2014. DMX and Tashera had three sons Xavier, Tocoma and Shawn, and a daughter Praise. Since their divorce, it is known that he has also fathered 11 other children from several different relationships, over the years. He welcomed his 15th child in 2016 with Lindstrom.
DMX was taken to a hospital in White Plains, New York on Friday, April 2 and is in the critical care unit. According to a report by TMZ, some said that he has "some brain activity." The website has also disclosed that a source said that drug overdose triggered the heart attack.
