Kehlani Is Pregnant And The Internet Is Singing All Of The Queer AF Bendiciones
First Kehlani teased us with the obvious expected news:
Claro que si, that her collaboration with Cardi B “Ring” went platinum. When two Afro-Latinas come together, magic happens.
Kehlani is glowing with her pregnancy.
Kehlani delivered the news in what could have been a line in “Ring.” Was it hard for you to “keep this on the low”? I’m screaming.
On Instagram, she wrote, “this was the HARDEST to hide.”
Caption: “if you know me, you know i’ve dreamt about motherhood since i was very young. when asked what my goals are, it’s always the idea of a big healthy happy family & whatever comes along is a plus . i am so honored to be given this gift by spirit, creator, and an amazing partner whom i trust with my body and life.”
Which led the internet to wonder, who has Kehlani been partnering up with?
“i knew sharing something so personal and precious could bring stress into my world…”
Kehlani continued in her Instagram post, “but there isn’t a word anyone would say my way that could take away from this. dearest little girl, i am so proud to be your mommy. i am so proud to have received you. i cannot wait to meet you, i know you will be 50,000 times more special than i can even imagine at this moment. i am happy to document this journey and feel the freedom any pregnant person should. i’m looking forward to sharing my little world with you all… my partnership with my very best friend and lover, our journey of conception, my choice for a natural home birth with my AMAZING midwives at @parteramidwifery and eventually… the little pumpkin! i am now a HOME. 4 months and counting with you, angel of mine. SHE DONT WANNN HIDE NO MO 🌸🦋😍 we’re so ready for you mija!”
Now we know that she has been dying to tell us all for months.
Yup. I’m not saying we should be sus of any celebrity with baby fever, but I am only my life experiences. I speak for the collective consciousness of the internet.
Twitter immediately started churning out pics of Kehlani with babies.
She makes it look so good. The 23-year-old has climbed to artistic goals status and is ready to have all her dreams met. Que bella.
Celebrities came out in droves to support all of this.
Queer Latina in arms, Lauren Jauregui was overflowing. Janelle Monáe, Missy Elliott, Jude and Shaun King are just a few. Oh, and all of you.
Queeros everywhere DGAF who the daddy is. We ship this.
I am just shocked that we don’t know who is the lucky human to be graced with Kehlani’s presence day in and day out. Te odio y te amo.
Okay, but now we know the dad is Javie Young-White.
The internet went ham on this. For a few months now, she’s been posting affectionate social media posts with Javie Young-White, her guitarist and brother of comedian Jaboukie Young-White.
Then, Kehlani retweeted Jaboukie’s gay uncle (i.e. guncle) tweet, confirming it all.
And somehow this confused the queer-illiterate.
Biphobia is so last decade everyone. Just because a pansexual person is with someone of the opposite sex does not mean they are suddenly not queer. It erases an entire identity and life up until that moment. Her new baby daddy identifies as bisexual and we love that they’re able to relate to each other’s expansive sexualities and raise a child in a world so much bigger than we all grew up in.
Kehlani made the first clapback to bigots, but the LGBTQ community is coming through.
Have you opened your eyes lately? Celebrate love and life and do something about the rest.
For eight beautiful hours before confirming the father, we all got to dream a little that Hayley Kiyoko was the father.
Tbh, queer hearts everywhere stopped when this theory was floated. Like, maybe she can’t be the biological father but she could still play a major role in the baby’s life.
Need we remind you of their collab on “What I Need”?
If you’re gay like me, you sobbed the moment these two finally came together to make out after a solid three minutes of incredible sexual tension that only queer people can give us. Or maybe being queer makes the tension more obvious and hetero tension boring?
Other baby daddy options also included Demi Lovato.
We cannot forget the moment Kehlani surprised Demi Lovato on stage with a steamy kiss. Icons.
We don’t need a document to affirm Demi’s daddy status.
She always has been and always will be. Look at that Daddy face, all serious, coño. I’m sweating.
Meet the actual father:
Okayyyy, you cute, too, boo. More importantly, you are as evolved and loving as Kehlani needs and for that, we support you. But hurt our girl and we’re out for blood.
Plus, their baby is going to be beautiful.
Okay, I resent when the first adjective we use to describe the value of a girl/womyn is beauty, but there is no denying that she will be B E A U T I F U L. More importantly, she will be creative, artistic, compassionate, brilliant and happy with these two for parents.
He is the only man she trusts.
Kehlani alluded that she had a traumatic experience with a man that she isn’t ready to talk about yet, but that she is on a healing path. When she first came out, she stated on Twitter:
“I’m queer. Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people. lil poly pansexual papa hello good morning. Does that answer your questions?”
They are both lil poly pansexual papas now.
We’re giggling and screaming over here.
Because if you know Kehlani, you know she works her culo off. Te damos nuestros bendiciones, mamita linda!!
Although I’m still confused about why Hayley Kiyoko isn’t the daddy.
Why were people confused about how she could be the father? Does she not scream daddy vibes? What am I missing here. Don’t tell me.
