Soulja Boy has welcomed his first child, a little boy named KeAndre.
The 32-year-old rapper, who welcomed his child with girlfriend Jackilyn Martinez, introduced the newest addition to the family to Instagram followers on Sept. 30.
The Kiss Me Thru the Phone singer, born DeAndre Cortez Way, posted a heartwarming shot of him holding his child, affectionately nicknamed “Lil Soulja.”
The infant, who already has his own Instagram account, snuggled up to his father while an anime show played in the background.
“Lil Soulja daddy loves you,” Soulja captioned the photo.
His girlfriend Jackilyn also showed off her newborn child as she celebrated her birthday on September 30th.
She posted a series of shots of her celebrating her special day with her baby in her arms.
‘Thanks for the birthday wishes ♥️ That was a great birthday! I gotta spend time with my own little family…it’s the simplicity that means everything couldn’t get a better gift than having my little boy here to celebrate…I love you,” she captioned the shots.
Soulja announced back in March that he and Jackilyn are expecting a child when he shared photos and videos from their gender reveal party.
The rapper was spotted spending time with his friends and family at a sex reveal party, where he threw down an egg filled with blue dust.
The singer further confirmed that he would be the parent of a son, with a message in the caption of his post which simply read: “It’s a boy ‼️”.
In the video, Soulja Boy and his partner could be seen sending blue dust into the air before embracing in front of their friends.
The rapper lovingly kissed her as their loved ones celebrated the future addition to their family.
The performer also appeared to be amused by one of his friends who donned a full body baby suit for the special occasion.
Soulja Boy shared a shot of himself posing with the mother of his soon-to-be child on his Instagram Story.
The parents-to-be all smiled broadly while spending time at the sex reveal party.
Rapper Crank That (Soulja Boy) made a point of putting his hand on his partner’s stomach as he posed for the camera.
The actor also shared a shot of himself sitting on the hood of a blue sports car, alluding to the gender of his soon-to-be-born child.
He left a text graphic on the post that read, “Thank you God. Such a blessing. Dear son, I will love you forever.’
Jackie shared the video of the reveal on her own Instagram account, and she also posted two other clips from the event.
According to TMZ, the rapper’s partner works as a hairdresser in the Los Angeles area.
The media outlet reported that her past clients include personalities such as Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, among others.
