Diddy Spotted Holding Hands w/ Influencer Shawntya Joseph Days After Welcoming Newborn Baby w/ Dana Tran

Diddy wasn’t joking when he made “I Need A Girl.”

Back in October, Diddy was spotted in New York City strolling and holding hands with social media influencer Shawntya Joseph, just four days after his baby girl, Love Sean Combs, was born. 

As previously reported, Dana Tran, a 28-year-old cyber security specialist, was recently revealed as the mystery woman who gave birth to the music mogul’s daughter back in October. However, Diddy didn’t share the news about his growing family until this past weekend. On Saturday (Dec. 10) he took to Twitter and said:

“I’m so blessed to welcome my baby girl Love Sean Combs to the world. Mama Combs, Quincy, Justin, Christian, Chance, D’Lila, Jessie and myself all love you so much! God is the Greatest!”

Although Diddy is a father to a newborn, he was seen putting on a romantic display with Shawntya Joseph, who holds over 100,000 followers on Instagram. The pair looked cozy as they strolled, locked eyes with each other, and held conversations while wearing matching all-black outfits on October 19.

Being a father isn’t new to the 53-year-old. The rapper, born Sean Combs, shares three children — Christian Combs, 24, and twins D’Lila Star Combs and Jessie James Combs, 15 — with his late ex-partner Kim Porter: He also adopted her son, Quincy Brown, 31, from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure!.

In addition, he shares 28-year-old Justin Dior Combs with his ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton. The “Bad Boy Records” founder is also the father to 15-year-old Chance Combs, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Sarah Chapman.

Diddy and his children

The New York native’s new child seemingly comes as a surprise to most fans since Yung Miami previously opened up about her relationship with Diddy in an interview. The City Girls rapper shared:

“We are dating.”

Yung Miami born, Caresha Brownlee continued:

“We single, but we’re dating.”

She added:

“He see other people outside of me and I see people outside of him. I’m young. I’m dating. I’m, you know, having fun.”

Revealing that she was aware of Diddy dating other women, she said:

“I’m doing me. He’s doing the same thing. I can’t speak for exactly what he doing or who he seeing.”

As previously reported, Yung Miami took to Twitter yesterday (Dec. 12) to clarify she comes second to none of the women Diddy is dating after DJ Akademiks labeled her a side chick.

Admitting that Diddy makes her happy regardless, the 28-year-old added:

“I feel like he brings a different side of me. He brings out the better qualities of myself … That’s one thing I love about him. He brings out more confidence in me.”
