New life is so precious. Being showered with selfless love continues to strengthen me for all the many transitions that will continue to take place. My baby shower was an act of love. Shared with an intimate group whom have been in support of my growing family. Thank you ladies for your wisdom, guidance and support.
She shared a lovely photo that shows the parents’ hands holding Ace’s hand. She captioned the photo: “Ace Flores 3.14.2020.” O.T. Genasis also posted a photo of his newborn baby boy and told him that he loves him.
Soon after Haqq revealed that she was expecting her first child, she confessed that she and O.T. Genasis had been separated for several months.
She also revealed that she and her ex had plans to co-parent and love their child unconditionally.
She said: “Relationships don’t always work out the way we would hope, but between love & friendship, we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon. I’ve been single the last 8months, but I am in no way alone. OT and I have attended every doctor apt, and overall loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival. My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child. Our baby would not be who he is without his father, and I thank God for the spirit that grows inside of me. The only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores parents.”
Her close friends, Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner Jenner, Cassie, and Tamar Braxton, all congratulated her.
One fan shared: “I’m your number one fan! I really thank God for why you exist! You are a very brave, hardworking, and authentic person. You are, without a doubt, my inspiration. An example to follow! I wish you to be very happy today and forever. I admire you, and I always will.”
