After months of awaiting their first child together, Zonnique and Badhunta Izzy have finally welcomed their baby girl into the world. Xscape’s Tiny broke the news on Tuesday (Dec. 15) via a few Instagram posts.
“Congratulations to my 1st, my LuvBug @zonniquejailee,” she wrote next to one of Zonnique’s maternity photos. “My Gbaby is so fat & cute!! Just as I dreamed she would be!! I told y’all. Today was a very Blessed day straight frm God!”
“Congratulations beautiful,” Tiny captioned another photo from her daughter’s pregnancy shoot. “Gbaby is so gorgeous. @badhunta_izzy ya’ll did that.”
Back in August, during an episode of her FOX Soul talk show, “The Mix,” the Love Jones singer announced she and her boyfriend, Badhunta Izzy, were expecting. In the following months, Zonnique took to Instagram, documenting her pregnancy with various photos of her growing belly.
On Dec. 1, in anticipation of her baby girl, she tweeted, “My child wanna bake for the whole 40 weeks so bad, and my dumb ass saying she coming tomorrow every other day…I’ma keep trying to speak it into existence.”
Then last week, in an interview with People, Zonnique expressed her excitement about becoming a first-time mom. “I’m honestly just looking forward to always having a partner and something that I can literally say I made that I’ll always be proud of and be able to grow with,” she said. “And the lessons I’ll get to teach and learn all at the same time is a really exciting feeling for me.”
Tiny’s announcement of her granddaughter’s birth was met with congratulatory messages for Zonnique and Badhunta Izzy. Reginae Carter congratulated her longtime friend and Izzy on their new bundle of joy. “I cried my eyes for you this morning! I promise to be the best God mom to my little sweet God baby!,” she wrote. “I love you so much! After today, you big Nique! A whole mom. Wow. Congrats @zonniejailee & @badhunta_izzy.”
“Thanks Nae Nae,” Zonnique responded. “It’s the emotional sag for me, and now I got one.”
Zonnique’s cohosts from “The Mix” also celebrated the arrival of her baby girl. “Our new niece was born at 6:27am. She’s 8lbs, 8oz and 21 inches long!” Romeo Miller said on yesterday’s (Dec. 15) episode. “We haven’t seen her yet, but we already know she’s a beautiful, amazing strong princess.”
“So excited and happy for you two. Congrats,” Jazz Anderson added in her Instagram story.
