Kehlani Gave Birth to a Baby Girl Named Adeya


Looks like Jaboukie Young-White is officially a guncle.

Over the weekend, singer Kehlani gave birth to her first baby girl, according to her Instagram.

"This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home," she wrote. "Unmedicated homebirth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I've ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison. Refraining from posting to be [with] family and rest, we just wanted to say thank you who sent well wishes, love, and support in all forms while waiting & working to bring Adeya earthside." Unmedicated homebirth?!?! A woman of strength and power!

Kehlani announced her pregnancy back in October. Tweeting "SHE DONT WANNA HIDE NO MO," she posted photos of herself four months into her pregnancy, luxuriating in the sun. At the time she also disclosed that she was expecting a daughter and that her very fine partner Javie Young-White was her "best friend and quite frankly the only man on earth I trust." Come to find out, it was the brother of someone we already knew: the also very fine comedian Jaboukie Young-White.

After announcing her pregnancy, Kehlani was subject to criticism from people on social media wondering how a queer woman could possibly be in a relationship and have a baby with a man. Kehlani was quick to put them back in their place, reminding us that queerness is not something you prove, nor something you flunk out of. This was also something model Slick Woods discussed during her pregnancy.

"I can't believe my little brother is a father," he wrote to Twitter on Monday. "We used to have to hide beans in the higher up cabinets so he wouldn't shove them up his nose." Oh how far we've come.

A baby hasn't been the only thing that Kehlani released recently. In February, she also released the mixtape While We Wait. Looks like the wait is over.
