When Kehlani recently revealed that the next big project she’ll be working on is parenting, fans were overjoyed but curious about who the singer, who is openly bisexual, had collaborated with on her latest creation. Fans speculated that her ex-boyfriend, NBA player Kyrie Irving, might be the man involved after the pair had a tumultuous relationship of up’s and down’s a few years ago and recently made amends with the “CRZY” singer referring to him as her “best friend”. However it appears that although Kehlani still has love for Irving, he isn’t the father. Bossip recently dropped the details on who will be by the singer’s side when she gives birth to her daughter, and apparently that’s exactly where he’s been the whole time.
Kehlani shared that her daughter’s father has been right in front of our faces during most of her career and is none other than her right-hand man and guitarist, Javie Young-White. If the name sounds familiar, it may be because Javie is the brother of comedian and new Daily Show correspondent, Jaboukie Young-White.
The 23-year-old called into Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio recently sharing that she and her partner (whom she didn’t name at the time) planned the pregnancy and how she feels that Young-White understands who she is as a person being that he also identifies as bisexual.
The musician has made it abundantly clear on Twitter that he and Kehlani are in a great place and couldn’t be more excited to be new parents:
He also addressed the confusion and ignorance that has come the couple’s way since the announcement about what it means to be queer and procreating:
The failure for some to understand or support a relationship they don’t quite understand doesn’t make it any less beautiful and that genetically blessed baby appears to have parents who couldn’t be more excited to meet her. Congrats again to the couple!
