Malika Haqq, famously known for being best friends with Khloe Kardashian, has just welcomed her first child into the world: a baby boy! The reality star posted a sweet family photo featuring her hand along with her son’s and her baby’s father, rapper O.T. Genasis, real name Otis Flores.
Malika revealed that her son was born two days ago on March 14th and she and O.T. have chosen to name him Ace Flores. What an adorable name!
Khloe’s BFF announced she was expecting in September of last year. She kept the paternity of her baby boy under wraps for quite a while. Fans speculated that O.T. was the father, as he and Malika has an on-again, off-again relationship. It wasn’t until her baby shower that Malika finally let the secret out.
Khloe Kardashian threw Malika an extravagant baby shower, one that would definitely be expected from a Kardashian! The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took a classic baby theme, teddy bears, and turned it into something truly magical. The cream and light brown colors were simply beautiful.
Khloe, of course, was in attendance as well as Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner. Malika’s twin sister Khadijah was there to celebrate as well. Malika posted lots of pictures from the happy occasion and even included one with her and O.T., finally revealing that he was the father of her unborn son. While Malika has been very clear that there is no romantic connection with her and O.T., she has said that they are very much a family and he has been and will be, a huge part of his son’s life.

Relationships don’t always work out the way we would hope but between love & friendship we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon. I’ve been single the last 8months but I am in no way alone. OT and I have attended every doctors apt and over all loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival. My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child. Our baby would not be who he is without his father and I thank God for the spirit that grows inside of me. Only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores parents.
