Who needs a press conference when we have social media? It looks like rapper 50 Cent is welcoming fatherhood for a second time. Recently, 50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) sorta-kinda confirmed his new baby boy via his Instagram page with pics of the little guy memed out! Reportedly, the newborn is with his ex-girlfriend, model and actress Daphne Joy. The two began dating back in 2010 with rumors swirling that he stole her from then boyfriend comedian Deray Davis. Recently, they have experienced quite a bit of drama with the rapper being charged with one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism for kicking in Joy’s door and ransacking her home last year during an argument.
Since then, the case has been resolved and if you’re like us you were surprised to hear couple had a child. Daphne showed no photos of herself throughout the pregnancy, neither her or 50 spoke on the child and he was not listed as the father on the birth certificate. However, the Queens-bred native has shared endless photos of the adorable boy, with captions that he is indeed the father. Peep the pics below.
50 Cent also has 16-year-old son, Marquise Jackson, with his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins. If her name sounds familiar, it’s because was to appear on TLC’s short lived, ‘Starter Wives’ reality show. After only a few episodes, the show as canceled. 50 said he was ultimately responsible for its end. Anywho, congrats to 50 and Daphne–maybe!
