BIG SEAN & JHENÉ AIKO WELCOME THEIR FIRST CHILD TOGETHER
Big Sean and Jhené Aiko have officially announced the birth of their first child together.
The couple shared the news with a carousel of different photos on each of their Instagram pages on Friday (November 18). Along with revealing the baby’s name is Noah and that he arrived on November 8, the “IDFWU” rapper gave some insight into the labor.
“After 24 hours of Labor, A Lunar Eclipse, with rain from the beginning of labor til he was born, he’s here safe and sound,” Big Sean wrote. “Happy, Healthy and everything we could ever ask for and more. Any and everything for you Son.”
Jhené Aiko shared similar insight on her own page, adding a few nicknames for the pair’s newborn: “My baby Yoda, my Sani.”
Last month, the longtime couple revealed the baby’s gender on stage during Jhené’s show at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. “L.A., make some noise… make some noise for our baby boy!” Sean told the crowd while the couple performed their 2017 track “Moments.”
The baby is the first child for Sean, while Jhené has a 14-year-old daughter from a previous relationship with Omarion’s younger brother, O’Ryan.
On his 2020 song “Deep Reverence,” Sean revealed that he and his TWENTY88 partner suffered a miscarriage in a prior attempt to have a child together.
“Should be a billionaire based on the time off I’m not takin’/ Probably why this shit with me get crazy and we lost a baby,” he raps on the track, which lives on his Detroit 2 project. He later confirmed he was referring to Jhené in an interview with Sway in the Morning.
Upon announcing the pregnancy in June of this year, Sean expressed his gratitude for the new life. “Whole new motivation foreal!” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. “Very grateful God continues to bless us, Thank You. Can’t wait to be a Dad.”
And though he’s been focused on this new phase of life, Sean has kept other youth in mind as well – donating $100,000 in scholarships to HBCU college students earlier this fall in partnership with with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and Ally’s Moguls in the Making.
“After being involved with the development and launch of Moguls in the Making four years ago, I’m grateful that we’re bringing it back and continuing to give HBCU students the opportunity to see how their business ideas can come to life,” he said in a statement.
