AceShowbiz - Lil Yachty is likely losing sleep now, but not for making music or partying. The rapper is believed to be on diaper duty as he has reportedly welcomed his first child, a baby girl, with a mystery woman.
Sources close to the "Yacht Club" tell TMZ that the 24-year-old star's daughter was born in the last couple of weeks in New York City. Being a present dad, the Mableton native is said to be in the Big Apple now to spend some time with his newborn.
Yachty has not addressed the arrival of his baby girl on social media. It's unclear who the mother is, but the Grammy Award-nominated artist is known to have had a few different girlfriends.
Fans, meanwhile, have congratulated Yachty on his latest milestone. "Lil Yachty is gonna be a good dad," one tweeted after the news broke on Wednesday, October 20. Another wrote, "Lil Yachty had a kid before [Lil] Uzi [Vert] OMG Lil Yachty is a dad now??!!! I'm so happy for him holy s**t."
The baby's arrival has certainly added to Yachty's busy year. Back in April, he released his Detroit-themed mixtape "Michigan Boy Boat". He has been featured on Kanye West's tenth studio album "Donda" and Lil Tecca's "We Love You Tecca 2".
The "Broccoli" rhymer recently debuted a new song called "Believing" as part of "Pokemon 25: The Album", a project to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the popular Japanese franchise. In August, he celebrated his birthday by dropping a new EP, "Birthday Mix 6". He is reported to be producing and starring in a live-action movie based on the UNO card game, which is being developed by Mattel Films.
Yachty has also ventured out of the entertainment industry. Earlier this year, he entered the $1.5 trillion wellness industry by investing in the plant-based nutritional supplement brand PlantFuel alongside NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Owens. He also invested $1 million in the popular Jewish dating app Lox Club through his and Bhad Bhabie a.k.a. Danielle Bregoli's Scoop Investments venture capital fund.
