Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka and her rapper boyfriend Cordae have joyfully welcomed their first child, a baby girl, into the world. The news was confirmed by a source close to the couple who also revealed that both mother and daughter are doing well. This exciting development marks a new chapter in the lives of the four-time Grand Slam singles champion and her partner.
The couple had previously announced their expectancy in January through an Instagram post, sparking anticipation among fans and followers. In June, Osaka further shared that they were expecting a baby girl during a princess-themed baby shower. The tennis pro posted pictures from the event on Instagram, where she was seen surrounded by pink and purple balloons, hinting at the gender of the baby.
Osaka, who has always been private about her personal life, opened up about her thoughts on baby names earlier this year. She revealed that she and Cordae were considering something unique rather than traditional for their firstborn. However, the couple has yet to announce the name of their newborn daughter.
During her pregnancy, Osaka expressed her desire to be the best version of herself for her daughter. She admitted that while she had never been a mother before, she was taking it day by day and striving to be someone her child would be proud of. Contrary to her expectations of having numerous cravings throughout her pregnancy, Osaka found that she didn’t crave anything out of the ordinary.
In her pregnancy announcement, Osaka shared a photo of an ultrasound screen on Instagram, expressing her excitement about getting back on the court and giving a little life update for 2023. She reflected on her journey over the past few years, acknowledging that challenging times often bring the most fun. Her time away from the sport during her pregnancy reignited her love and appreciation for tennis, a game she has dedicated her life to.
Osaka also expressed her anticipation for her child to watch one of her matches and proudly say, “That’s my mom.” She pledged to return to tennis after welcoming her daughter, promising her fans that 2023 would be a year full of lessons for her. She ended her message with a hopeful note, stating her intention to participate in the Australian Open in 2024.
In conclusion, the arrival of Naomi Osaka and Cordae’s baby girl marks a new beginning for the couple. As they embark on this journey of parenthood, fans around the world eagerly await the return of the tennis champion to the court.
