Macklemore’s wife Tricia Davis revealed in her Instagram Stories in April that she was pregnant! The announcement was simple: she shared an image of herself holding her growing baby and added the text “summer baby.” Now, Tricia has revealed that she and Macklemore, whose real name is Ben Haggerty, have welcomed baby number three!
Tricia shared a picture of herself holding her newborn to share the news. “Six weeks ago in the shadow of the Buck Moon 🌝 🦌 this beautiful human came into our lives,” she started in her post. “He arrived rooted and calm, mostly just observing the two whirling dervishes around him.” She then revealed the name she and Macklemore chose for their son: Hugo. Hugo is a German name that means ” Bright In Mind And Spirit.” Tricia ended her caption with a message to her son: “May you crush the distorted masculine and awaken the divine.”
While Macklemore didn’t share an official announcement on his own Instagram page, he did post a video that featured Hugo. The rapper shared an IGTV video promoting the grand opening of his golf brand Bogey Boys flagship store in Seattle. The video showed clips of the street the store is on, the storefront, employees of the brand, and snippets of the inside of the location. The video ended with Macklemore standing in what appeared to be a lounge area with a large display of his store’s name behind him while he held baby Hugo close.
