AceShowbiz - Macklemore is having a new addition to his growing family with his wife of two years Tricia. The rapper broke the news online. He announced in a video message that his wife was pregnant. The baby will be the second child for the longtime couple.
"I woke up today, and I had an idea. You guys have been such a huge part of our lives, that I wanted to let you in on a little secret," the hip-hop star told his fans. "Tricia is pregnant and today we are going to find out the gender of our child."
He was joined by his family including his adorable first child as he cut a half-pink, half-blue cake. "The suspense is killing me," one person said. However, instead of revealing the baby's gender, he pulled out a card announcing his upcoming second concert at KeyArena in Seattle. Giggles and laughters soon followed.
"Tricia really is pregnant though," the proud father clarified and winked at the end of the video. "Seattle...Second time's the charm," the 34-year-old rapper whose real name is Ben Haggerty additionally wrote in the caption. "And yes, both announcements are true."
The baby will join big sister Sloane Ava Simone who turned 2 years old in May. Macklemore tied the knot with Tricia in June 2015, less than a month after welcoming baby Sloane. He celebrated the birth of his first child with a song called "growing Up" featuring Ed Sheeran.
The pregnancy announcement was made just after Macklemore and Ryan Lewis made it into the top 20 of Forbes' list of 2017 highest-paid hip-hop stars. They are ranked No. 18 with an estimated $11.5 million while the cash king is P. Diddy.
