Over the weekend, Kehlani gave birth to a new bundle of joy.
Yesterday (Mar. 25), the R&B singer shared a photo of a baby blanket on Instagram and announced the birth of her baby girl, who she named Adeya.
“this weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home. unmedicated homebirth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing i’ve ever done. thankful beyond words. in love beyond comparison. refraining from posting to be family and rest, we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes, love, and support in all forms while waiting & working to bring Adeya earthside,” she wrote.
Adeya’s father also shared an Instagram message announcing her birth. “Adeya is here. Kehlani birthed her, standing up, right into my arms. In that moment, all the indisputable pulls of intuition, random bellows of clarity, & ear-splitting life lessons I’ve received in recent years made more sense than i’ve ever needed. We came face to face with beauty. arm in arm with God. I realized I was never alone in those moments, Adeya was simply aligning things for herself haha. She doesn’t take hesitation for an answer. It’s a blessing to have purpose within such a healthy, willful family. We’ll be spending the next few weeks resting & falling deeper in love with each other. Thank you to all of you sending uplifting & expansive energy our way, not a drop goes wasted,” he wrote.
Earlier this year, he shared a photograph on Instagram of himself with Kehlani and wrote a caption directed towards their soon-to-be-born daughter. “We already know your name, we writing hooks about you, if anybody wanna talk, we getting booked about you,” he wrote.
