It was the worst kept secret. For a month now, folks have speculated that Iggy Azalea had given birth to her first child. And even though the rapper tried to through her fans off with dated IG pics and sheer silence, the fact still remained — they were right!
It was a simple statement in her Instagram story. “I have a son,” Iggy wrote. “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.”
That’s right, no grand announcement, no picture and she didn’t even tag her boyfriend and newly minted baby daddy, fellow rapper Playboi Carti. Azalea just wanted to say she’s now a mom. But, she did make one thing clear — she’s wasn’t pulling a Drake. “I want to keep his life private,” she continued on IG, “but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words.”
It was just last month when rumors were flying that Iggy and Carti had welcomed a baby boy. And even before that, the blogs had speculated the “Fancy” rapper was 6 months pregnant ion December. Her response? A bikini pic on her Insta-feed. Subtle, real subtle…
In addition to a new baby boy, rumor has that Azalea and Carti are engaged. But, the 30-year-old Australian and the 23-year-old ATL rapper have yet to confirm that news. So, again, we must wait for another IG announcement. Maybe.
