Did You Know They Procreated? 11 Famous Folks Who We Didn’t Know Had Babies Together
From famous couples who dated, got married and even just had flings, they all ended the same way in a sense–with a baby. Now, if these past couple are happily co-parenting is a whole other story. Did you know these people had children together? Let’s take a look and see if there are any surprises! And per the usual, be prepared to click…
Kenny Anderson and Spinderella
Before he was out here dogging Tami Akbar (aka, Tami Roman) during their married years, Kenny Anderson was involved with everybody’s favorite female DJ, Spinderella (sorry Solange). The two have a daughter together named Christenese, better known as Christy. The young lady wound up appearing on an episode of “My Super Sweet Sixteen” on MTV. Thankfully, she wasn’t as trifling as most of the kids who end up on that show. Christy is Spinderella’s first and only child, but the second of Kenny’s seven children.
Musiq Soulchild and Kameelah Williams of 702
Talk about making beautiful music together! The two well known R&B singers started dating under the radar and in 2009, they welcomed their son into the world. The little one is said to be the inspiration behind the song, “SoBeautiful.” These two kept the romance going after the fact and can be seen hand in hand at red carpets. They’ve been working on music as a couple and there was even talk of the two going on tour together possibly.
Forest Whitaker and Raye Dowell
If you follow our site, I’m sure you’ve come across this tidbit of information, but the Oscar-winning actor used to be romantically involved with “She’s Gotta Have It” actress Raye Dowell. Their relationship brought about the birth of a son. The young man’s name being Ocean Alexander Whitaker. When asked why his children have such interesting names, he says that he wants them to touch their destiny by their names.
“Ocean just has a big heart. He wants to be a veterinarian…He’s been talking about it for years.”
Jhene Aiko and O’Ryan
I already know what you’re thinking. Who the hell is O’Ryan? And who the hell is Jhene Aiko?? Well, for all the throwback B2K fans, O’Ryan is the little brother of the always thirsty Omarion, another big singer in their musical family, and Jhene Aiko is a singer who appeared on B2K’s albums when they were at their peak. The two dated, and she even appeared in a music video of his, but I’m sure they were both shocked when a baby popped in the picture. They have a now three-year-old baby girl named Namiko Browner (who is too adorable by the way), and while we haven’t seen O’Ryan on the scene like that in a long time, Jhene is getting back into the music industry, dropping mixtapes left and right and creating buzz.
Tiara Campbell (Tisha’s Sister) and Baby Blue of Pretty Ricky
This baby-making union didn’t end on as positive a note as most of these other ones did. The little sister of actress Tisha Campbell-Martin (she’s one of five sisters the actress has, along with a brother) got herself involved with the most interesting looking fella in the R&B group Pretty Ricky, Mr. Diamond “Baby Blue” Smith. According to reports, the two met in Atlanta and started dating, but when Tiara ended up pregnant, Baby Blue started buggin’ out. It caused Tiara to end up depressed, and Tisha and Duane Martin weren’t having it. They went public with their disgust of Baby Blue: “I’m a father, so if I have to blast him to make him become a father, then I will do just that. When you mess with my wife or my family then I become upset…” Not sure if the guy actually stepped up, but after he responded in the media and said she was a fling we hope if he did, he gets his act together: “”I don’t know. I did hit her, but I didn’t hit her raw, I strapped up. One thing is though, if it is my baby, I’ma be a good daddy. I got a good daddy, so, I’ma take care of mine. “
John Singleton and Akosua Gyamama Busia
The South Los Angeles native and the star of “The Color Purple” (she played the sister, Nettie) not only had a child together, but they were actually married. They tied the knot in ’96 and had their daughter, Hadar Singleton, in 1997. Unfortunately, the couple wound up divorcing years later.
DB Woodside and Golden Brooks
These two very good looking people known for their TV and movie roles started dating in 2008, and before they knew it, Golden was pregnant. She wound up giving birth to their daughter Dakota in 2009. And while they didn’t last as a pair, they still get along great and take good care of their child through co-parenting.
Aaron Hall and Video Model Gloria Velez
Back when Aaron Hall was all that in R&B music (I can listen to “I Miss You” non-stop like it’s an uptempo track to this day…), he met and had a romantic relationship with a young Gloria Velez. Seriously though, she was actually 16 while he was in his 30s…Anywho, they had a son together by the name of Anthony, and unfortunately, for years Velez was throwing around public claims that Hall has been a deadbeat dad, on top of abuse claims against her while they were together. Messy…
Kurupt and Natina Reed
f you liked the song “It’s Over” by Kurupt as much as I did, then you probably already knew before Natina Reed’s tragic death this past weekend that the two were once engaged and have a son. She was in the video and she did provide the hook for the single. After being engaged in 2001, the two had their son, Tren Brown, in 2002. They separated and continued to take care of their son together. After Reed’s passing, the rapper said that, “This is a tremendous loss to our family. Natina was a great person and I wish everyone had the opportunity to meet her and know her as I did.”
Big Gipp and Joi
The very beautiful R&B/funk/rock singer Joi and the very interesting looking Big Gipp of Goodie Mob fame were another married couple from the same industry who brought a baby into the world. The two had their little girl in 1996, and her name is Keypsiia Blue Daydreamer. She is the child sitting in Joi’s belly as she rocked a sheer number to croon with D’Angelo in the “Lady” remix visuals. But relationship wise, things fell apart as Gipp worked hard on his music while Joi stayed home to tend to her family. As she once said in a lyric post their divorce, “The rap game stole my man from me…. I’ll always love him, even though he forgot how to.” But in an interview with Black Voices, she also had good things to say about their time together and the child that it produced: ” What Gipp and I were was timeless. I’m glad it was a part of my life and my love history, and we have an extraordinary daughter that came from that love.”
Christopher Williams and Stacey Dash
Before Stacey Dash had love for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, she had a lot of love for singer and actor Christopher Williams. The two very good looking people came together to have a son, Austin Williams, who is now in his 20s. He inherited his parents beauty because the young man has been having a successful modeling career, popping up on different runways all over the place. Not sure if these two get along after having a child together, as they barely mention each other like that. I’ll take that as a no…
