The long-time couple announced their pregnancy on Instagram
Singer Jhene Aiko and US rapper Big Sean are delighted and looking forward to the next chapter in their lives.
The on-again, off-again couple was photographed out and about in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Saturday, with a visibly pregnant Aiko, 34, flaunting her baby bump in a body-hugging gray dress and white slides.
Big Sean, 34, was right by her side, dressed casually in a T-shirt, hat, khakis, and sneakers.
Sean will have his first child, and Aiko will have her second. The “Stay Ready” singer has a 13-year-old daughter, Namiko Love, with R&B singer O’Ryan, Omarion’s younger brother.
Rumors of the couple’s breakup circulated on social media a few years ago. However, amid the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the hip-hop couple patched up their relationship once more.
Aiko responded to the split news in an Instagram comment at the time, emphasizing that there was no bad blood between the two.
“Me and Sean are good,” she wrote in response to a fan’s suggestion that she mock the rapper on her next album.
“I’ve got tons of love for him. My next album is all freestyles where I touch on many subjects and relationships… past, present, and future.”
“I know you all love the drama and would like to think everything I do or say is about him, but I’ve been through plenty of other things and situations that I pull inspiration from when I sit down to create a song,” she continued.
Fans realized something was wrong when they both scrubbed their Instagram accounts clean of each other.Then, to cover up her tattoos, including one of Sean’s faces, Aiko got a massive tattoo of a swirling galaxy.
The two were seen publicly flirting again the following year, with Sean joking about proposing to her during a joint Instagram Live.
In 2020, Aiko proposed, “Why don’t you marry me?”
“It’s in the works,” he replied, to which she quipped, “Whatever, I don’t need no man.”
