Victoria Monet and her boyfriend, fitness model John Gaines, announced on Friday that they welcomed their daughter Hazel Monet Gaines on Sunday (February 21). The “Experience” singer shared a photo of herself and Gaines holding their newborn’s hand with the caption, “Mommy and Daddy love you so much,” followed by John sharing the same photo of their daughter’s tiny hand wrapped around Victoria’s finger, writing, “I love you @victoriamonet. Thank you for the best early birthday gift I could ask for.” He continued with the hashtag, “Girl Dad.” John turns 30 years old next week.
Known for penning Ariana Grande’s chart-topping hit “Thank You, Next,” the singer only recently debuted her baby bump, sharing the news via social media that she was expecting.
On Dec. 5 she wrote the heartfelt caption:
“I’m so happy to share that I have been promoted to the title just above Queen… Mom.
“Two hearts beat inside of me now… That’s more love. Two brains and two souls… that’s so much power. Really been feeling like the ultra super Victoria cause my body is doing such miraculous work. This is absolutely the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can’t wait to meet my tiny soul mate earth side,” she wrote. “I hold my head higher with the confidence you already gift. You are the best of me and I promise to protect you and be the best version of myself for you all ways, always,” she concluded.
The following day she shared a professional video of the couple embracing and John kissing Victoria’s very pregnant belly with the caption, “My best collaboration yet…due to drop Valentine’s Day 2021.”
The singer recently released “F.U.C.K.,” which stands for ‘Friend U Can Keep,’ the first single from her upcoming album of the same name.
