A very pregnant Kehlani released an official music video for “Butterfly” earlier this month and now her baby girl is here.
The While We Wait artist took to Instagram yesterday welcoming Adeya to the word with a statement reading:
“This weekend our angel arrived healthy and perfect in every way in our bathroom at home. Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison. Refraining from posting to be with family and rest, we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes, love, and support in all forms while waiting and working to bring Adeya earthside. 🧡”
The father of her child Javie Young-White added:
“Adeya is here. Kehlani birthed her, standing up, right into my arms. In that moment, all the indisputable pulls of intuition, random bellows of clarity, and ear-splitting life lessons I’ve received in recent years made more sense than I’ve ever needed. We came face to face with beauty. Arm in arm with God. I realized I was never alone in those moments, Adeya was simply aligning things for herself haha. She doesn’t take hesitation for an answer. It’s a blessing to have purpose within such a healthy, willful family. We’ll be spending the next few weeks resting and falling deeper in love with each other. Thank you to all of you sending uplifting and expansive energy our way, not a drop goes wasted.💚”
Kehlani and Javie announced their pregnancy last October. At the time she was four months along and had chosen the name Mija. They later held a baby shower in January revealing that their daughter would instead be named Adeya Nomi.
Congratulations to Kehlani and her entire family on their blessing. While We Wait is available on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital services now.
all for you Adeya Nomi. 🧡 pic.twitter.com/8JgMbnNZoB
