The child of Big Sean and Jhené Aiko is on the way! The pair, who work together frequently, are “overjoyed” about this new chapter in their lives and are expecting their first child together.
Big Sean, 34, and Jhene Aiko, 34, made headlines on Saturday as they strolled around Beverly Hills, California, revealing for the first time the latter’s baby belly in plain view. In photos published by TMZ, the rapper, who was clad in a white graphic t-shirt, tan jeans, and green and white sneakers, gleefully shopped with the singer, who was apparently expecting. He completed his ensemble with a black and white baseball cap, while she wore a short ponytail with her wavy hair pulled back and accessorized with a necklace and bracelets.
Nearly two years had passed since Big Sean released the song “Deep Reverence,” which made reference to a miscarriage. Although he didn’t specifically mention Jhené by name in the lyrics, fans thought the song was about them. Sean gushed about how excited he is to be a father on his Instagram Story, calling the pregnancy a “whole new incentive.” Newfound motivation for sure! Sean penned. We are grateful that God is continuing to bless us. adding in a different post, “Excited to become a father.”
The newborn will be Jhene’s second kid and Sean’s first. The devoted mother and ex-O’Ryan already share a 13-year-old daughter named Namiko Love Browner. Although Jhene occasionally posts cute pictures of the teenager on her Instagram, she generally prefers to keep her first child’s life secret.
Many people were pretty surprised by the couple’s outing because they have been dating since 2016 and have never made a pregnancy publicly known. Jhene and Sean had previously spoken about starting a family together, although it’s unclear how far along she is at this time. Additionally, they have discussed getting hitched at some point, and in a public, Instagram live chat from 2020 (which can be seen below), the beauty even posed the question, “Why don’t you marry me? ” to the man. Many of his admirers assumed that an engagement was imminent when he said, “It’s in the works.”
The year they started dating, the couple also performed as a duo under the stage name Twenty88 and put out an album. Jhené said that the solid foundation she has with Big Sean is what makes their relationship so special during a February 2021 interview with DJ Khaled. Our close friendship, she said, “has made our relationship what it is, just that basis of real friends who really know each other on that level.”
