The 9-time Grammy winner later admitted that it wasn’t easy keeping the exciting baby news under wraps.
“It was harder for me to keep it from my posse, because they’re around me, they know my habits,” she told E! News’ Daily Pop host Justin Sylvester in February. “They’re like, ‘You don’t want something to drink? You’re not smoking?’ And I’m eating all the things I’m not used to eating. They know I hate sweets and I’m all of a sudden asking for cookies and donuts.”
She continued, “But finally, I just had to let it all out, and they were all shocked, of course, as the world was shocked as well.”
Now that the pair have welcomed their baby boy, A$AP has shared what kind of child he hopes to raise. “I will always remind my children to never lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what,” the rapper told Dazed on May 30. “I actually love to watch cartoons—I’ve watched like, Teletubbies, Blue’s Clues, Yo Gabba Gabba, Peppa Pig and Baby Shark.”
But his wishes don’t stop there. A$AP added, “I hope to raise open-minded children. Not people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically, I just want a cool child with cool parents.”
