Unconfirmed reports indicating Iggy Azalea welcomed a baby with rapper Playboi Carti had many of the beauty’s fans speculating online Thursday.
Artist DJ Akademiks told his 2.5 million Instagram followers that he’d heard word that the Australian artist, 29, whose real name is Amethyst Kelly, had a baby over the weekend with the rapper, 23.
DJ Akademiks posted a pic of the pair with a caption that read ‘Congrats to Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti on the birth [of] their son this weekend.’
He added in his own caption, ‘Talked to some ppl…. allegedly this is true. Congrats to #playboicarti and #iggyazalea if it is.’
The item caught the attention of fans of the artists, as some implied they were caught off guard by the news that the Fancy songstress was in a romantic relationship.
The couple, first linked in the summer of 2018, had an on-and-off relationship in the late months of 2019, with a brief breakup in December – Azalea declared ‘I’m single’ in an Instagram post – followed by a rekindled romance.
‘Iggy Azalea was pregnant and just had a baby?’ one wrote.
Another said, ‘iggy azalea and playboi carti had a baby together?? i didn’t even know they were dating.’
Playboi Carti, whose full name is Jordan Terrell Carter, was arrested earlier this month in Clayton County, Georgia in connection with weapons and drug possession.
Police told TMZ that officers initially pulled the artist over in his Lamborghini Huracan because the registration on the vehicle was expired. Police said the the rapper had marijuana, multiple types of prescription medication and weapons.
