Today, the Nigerian-American rapper Wale took to Instagram to announce that he and long time girlfriend, Chloe Alexis, are new parents. In an emotional post shared on his Instagram, the MMG artiste revealed why he kept the news of their pregnancy away from his social media.
“I keep the most important things in my life so far away from people because I’m sensitive,” he writes, adding, “Quite possibly too sensitive to even be in this business nevertheless I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child.”
The news of Chloe’s pregnancy first surfaced in May after Bossip shared a photo of the couple. According to the publication:
“Wale has spoken several times about how Chloe was pregnant and miscarried and the ordeal sent him into a depression and caused difficulties for the relationship. It appears the couple have overcome that hardship now because Chloe is pregnant and showing and celebrating in a series of new photos that her sister shared on social media.”
Now, the proud dad can’t stop talking about his daughter and has taken to Twitter to reveal her name. See his tweets:
