Jhené Aiko and Big Sean Are Expecting Their First Child Together
R&B star Jhené Aiko and rapper Big Sean are collaborating on more than just another hit track.
The longtime couple was spotted in Beverly Hills over the weekend with a glowing Aiko sporting a grey maxi dress with a noticeable baby bump. TMZ snagged the initial photos on July 2 and was the first to announce the happy news.
Aiko seemingly confirmed the rumors the next day with a post on her Instagram featuring a childhood photo of herself holding her stomach. Rapper Big Sean was more direct with his confirmation reposting the picture on his story, saying, “Whole new motivation foreal! Very grateful God continues to bless us; thank you. Can’t wait to be a Dad.”
A representative for Aiko also confirmed the news with People saying, “The couple is overjoyed and looks forward to this next chapter.”
A six-time Grammy nominee, Aiko, has worked with Big Sean on several songs and records throughout the years, notably their 2016 album TWENTY88. The couple has been together on-again-off-again since the album release. While ideas of marriage have been floated, the duo has yet to tie the knot.
The baby will be the first for Big Sean and the second for Aiko, who shares a 13-year-old daughter, Namiko Love, with singer O’Ryan.
Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
