Rapper Post Malone has shared exciting news today. He is going to be a father! Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, is expecting his first child with his girlfriend, whose identity is unknown.

The “Circles” rapper opened up about becoming a dad to People Magazine. “I’m excited for this next chapter in my life,” he shared with the publication. “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and for since I could remember I was sad. Time to take care of my body and my family and friends, and spread as much love as we can every day.”

The couple reportedly celebrated their little one at a party this weekend in Southern California surrounded by family and friends. It’s unclear who Post Malone’s girlfriend is as the couple has largely remained out of the public eye. This exciting news comes one month before the rapper is set to release his fourth album Twelve Carat Toothache. He announced the release last week.

Congratulations to Post Malone and his girlfriend on the news of their baby! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to grow their family and welcome their first child into the world.
