Rapper Big Sean, whose real name is Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, is expecting his first child! The rapper’s longtime partner singer Jhené Aiko is pregnant with the couple’s first child together. After some online speculation about the couple’s pregnancy, Jhené confirmed the news.

While this new bundle of joy will be Sean’s first child, the baby will be Jhené’s second. The “Sativa” singer shares a 13-year-old daughter named Namiko Love with singer O’Ryan. In a statement to People Magazine, reps for Jhené shared, “The couple is overjoyed and looks forward to this next chapter.” The pregnancy confirmation came shortly after TMZ shared photos of the couple out in Beverly Hills with Jhené’s growing baby bump in view.

The “Hate Our Love” rapper and Jhené have been dating on and off since 2016 and have collaborated together frequently, specifically as the music duo TWENTY88. In 2020, Sean released the song “Deep Reverence” where he spoke about losing a child, and many speculated the “we” he referred to in the lyrics was himself and Jhené. The lyrics that revealed the loss were: “Should be a billionaire based on the time off I’m not taking / Probably why the s— around me get crazy and we lost the baby.”

Congratulations to Sean and Jhené on the news of their first child together! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to welcome their little one into the world.
