Post Malone is expecting his first child with his longtime girlfriend, who is not in the public eye. The 26-year-old rapper released the happy news in a statement to People and TMZ on Tuesday, in which he shared his excitement and claimed to be “happier” than ever.
I’m excited for this next chapter in my life, I’m happier than ever, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve been sad. It’s time to take care of my body, my family and friends and spread love as much as possible every day.
– Post Malone
According to TMZ, Malone, who has been open about his battle with depression, celebrated with his partner the announcement of the future minirockstar with a private party among friends and family in Southern California this weekend.
However, Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, did not reveal the approximate date on which his firstborn will enter the world. The announcement comes a month before the release of the singer’s third album Circles, Twelve Carat Toothache.
