Baby Onyx has officially been introduced!
One month after Iggy Azalea revealed that she has a son, the rapper took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 14) to tell the world his name. In an audio recording labeled “Amethyst & Onyx,” Iggy is heard encouraging her child to speak to her while the baby boy lets out adorable little coos.
Since the rapper’s real name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, fans were quick to deduce that her son’s name is Onyx. When someone in the comment section pointed out that the gemstone-themed names “go so well together,” Iggy sweetly replied, “we besties forever.”
“I have a son,” she announced in June. “I kept waiting for the right time to say something but if feels like the more time passes the more I realize I’m always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world.”
“I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words,” she explained of why she kept his birth on the down-low. At press time the Australian “Fancy” artist had not shared who the baby’s father is or any additional information about when the baby was born.
