Congratulations are in order to newly parents Wale and long term girlfriend Chloe Alexis. The couple birthed their little bundle of joy, Zyla Moon Oluwakemi, yesterday afternoon.
The rapper has always opened up about his personal life in his lyrics. Like on songs such as ‘The Matrimony” where he reminisces on their previous miscarriage. And unfortunately for that reason Wale says that is why he kept the pregnancy a secret this time around.
He took to Instagram with a beautiful message after his babygirl was born.

Teyana Taylor did not come to play with us last night!
The 25 year old slayed her Lil’ Kim tribute last night at the Hip Hop Honors. At the beginning of the performance Lil Mama and Dej Loaf did a great job at impersonating The Queen B in some of her most memorable wigs and outfits but in the end it was Teyana who ultimately stole the show.
To make the performance even more appealing, Teyana was accompanied by Bad Boy Records very own and some of Kim’s former label mates such as The Lox and French Montana.
When Teyana found out she was taking part in this tribute she was ecstatic about it. The singer took to her Instagram with an old video of her imitating and dancing to Mo Money Mo Problems in her old Miami condo. Under the video she wrote:
😂😂😭😂SHMOOD: when I found out that I will be doing the@lilkimthequeenbee tribute for the#VH1Honors 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾#LiLKimOneOfMyFavs #TakeThatTakeThat😭😭😭😭😭😂
And it showed. She nailed it!

Newly wed Russell Wilson is obviously still on a natural high from his recent wedding day. And although we’re sure the football star and his wifey Ciara created a plethora of special moments that day, Russell has shared his favorite with us.
He told E News:
The best part was watching her walk down the isle. Just to see her face and the long train she had.
And then, Earth Wind and Fire just took the night away.
He expressed the love he has for baby Future but when it comes to having kids of their own it probably won’t be any time soon. He says:
Down the road. Obviously. I love kids, she does too. Ya’ know God willing. As long as they’re healthy, that’s what we pray for. Whether it’s a boy or girl who knows but we have some time for that. She’s making her music right now and I’m playing sports and hosting shows.
