According to a report from BET.com, Chance The Rapper and his wife, Kirsten Corley, just had their second daughter and they shared a photo of her along with her name. On the 6th of September, Friday, Kirsten shared a picture of their little girl along with the caption, “Our sweet baby girl, Marli, is here.”
Marli joins Kensli Bennett, 4. Back in March, Chance The Rapper and Kirsten announced they were going to have a baby, less than one week before their marriage at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California.
The rapper shared on his account that “we pregnant again,” adding that it was a girl. Chance also expressed his faith in God, stating, “Jesus Christ, We Love You, God.”
Perhaps the birth of Chance The Rapper’s children has led him to feel more strongly about women’s rights? For instance, back in January, Chance The Rapper came out to apologize to the alleged victims of R. Kelly.
A documentary exploring the allegations of R. Kelly, titled, Surviving R. Kelly, aired on Lifetime, calling into question the way in which people in the music industry worked with Kelly for years, despite having at least some knowledge of his behavior.
Chance The Rapper joined a plethora of other celebrities who came out to criticize the singer, including Charlamagne Tha God, John Legend, and many others. Chance The Rapper was one of the artists who said in a clip that working with the formerly legendary R&B artist was a big mistake.
On his Twitter, the “Groceries” rapper stated, “I apologize to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking so long to speak out.” On the other hand, Chance took the documentarians to task for supposedly misquoting him in such a way where it appeared as though he didn’t value the victims as much because they were black women, primarily.
In reference to the interview, Chance stated that he was trying to explain the way in which society thinks that it’s primarily black men who are oppressed, rather than women as well.
