Rapper Joe Budden and model Cyn Santana have announced via social media that the two are expecting their first child together.
The surprising announcement came as the two shared images from a maternity photoshoot to their social media pages on Wednesday (August 9).
As Budden shared a photo of himself and Cyn on Instagram, he provided a gratitude-filled comment adorned with praise for the mother of his child. The photo the Jersey rapper shared on the ‘Gram has since received nearly 250,000 likes. One of Santana’s pictures has passed 300,000 likes.
“I never felt this way before,” Joe Budden wrote. “I never not thank God for every intricate detail that make you whole. It makes me whole. I never imagined you would be as beautiful as you are today, it’s beautiful to be a part of. Thank you for it all. Thank you for not only making me stronger, but for being strong enough for us both most times. Thank you for for carrying my child. Thank you for helping me rectify some generational issues, thank you for helping me get it right.”
Budden and Cyn have dated for roughly a year, and both appeared on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop. The two weren’t an item when the reality show aired.
It’s unclear when Cyn Santana and Joe Budden’s baby is due. Budden currently has a teenage son from a previous relationship.
