Kehlani, US singer, has welcomed her first child. The 23-year-old singer announced Monday she welcomed daughter Adeya with her partner, Javie Young-White, over the weekend.
Kehlani shared the happy news via her Instagram, revealing she gave birth to the infant ‘unmedicated’ at home.
Posting a photo of their child’s forest-themed baby blanket, she wrote: ‘this weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,’ she wrote on Instagram. ‘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.’
Proud new dad Javie, who is Kehlani’s guitarist, also took to his Instagram to gush about his new baby.
‘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.’
