Kehlani Is Pregnant And The Internet Is Singing All Of The Queer AF Bendiciones

@kehlani / Twitter
Kehlani recently announced that she is four months pregnant and glowing and we’re all sending blessings on blessings.
The singer has been through some tough times, along with a suicide attempt just a few years ago. During her recovery, she got a tattoo that says “perdida y encontrada.” Since then, she has come out as queer and pansexual, dropped an entire debut solo album, and is now gleefully about to become a mother to a little girl.
Truth: She is still dealing with ignorance around queer folks but is using the internet to clap back. Check it.

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.

Check Out These Horror Movies From Latin America To Get You In The Halloween Mood

Alucarda / Films 75

Every year when October rolls around, the traditional horror films such as “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” make the movie marathon rounds. This year, switch things up a little bit and screen some horror films from Mexico and South America.

1. “La maldición de la llorona”

La Llorona is one of the OG scary legends of Mexico folklore, so you know she had to get her shining moment on film at one point or another. In this 1963 Mexican horror film, a beautiful villain who likes to practice black magic tries to lure her niece into her mansion. The plot sounds like a creepier version of Snow White as they try to resurrect La Llorona. Sounds crazier than our Tia Rosita who has five dogs and cats in her house, but only by a little bit.

2. “Hasta el viento tiene miedo”

Literally translated as “Even the wind is afraid,” just the title of this Mexican horror film is enough to send chills up our spine. Think of it as our parents’ version of “Saw” or “The Conjuring.” The film is set at an all-girls boarding school and a ghost roams the halls, constantly sparking nightmares for one of the students.

3. “Cronos”

Before Guillermo del Toro become an Oscar winner and had racked up a roster of fantastical films, his 1993 horror drama film “Cronos” was the first feature film he directed. The film’s plot centered around an antique dealer who finds a mechanical object that injects him and allows him to become younger and stronger—but also gives him a thirst for blood. If you want to continue a del Toro-themed scary movie marathon, then follow up “Cronos” with “The Devil’s Backbone.”

4. “This Night I’ll Possess Your Corpse”

An example of Brazilian pornochanchada (a genre of sex comedy films made popular in the 1960s), “This Night I’ll Possess Your Corpse” was one far-out baby mama drama. The main protagonist impregnates women but first makes them go through trials of tortures and tarantulas because his spawn must be immune to fear. None of this makes sense to us either.

5. “Alucarda”

In this Mexican horror film, two orphan girls at a convent get possessed by a demonic force after bumping into a band of gypsies and opening a casket. The film has often been compared to “The Exorcist” because of the similar themes of being possessed and scenes of sacrilege.

6. “Veneno para las hadas”

As the name suggests, “Veneno para las hadas” (Poison for fairies) starts out innocently and then turns menacing. In this 1980s Mexican horror film, a young girl named Veronica believes in witchcraft and evil spirits and convinces a new girl at her school she is a witch and can make supernatural events occur. When both girls attend a family vacation together, the plot thickens with a blazing fire involved.

7. “La Tía Alejandra”

Alright kids, this is why you need to be respectful to your elders. In this Mexican horror film, an elderly lady comes to live with her nephew’s family and is mercilessly teased by the children. Little did they know she is an actual witch that practices witchcraft and some strange events soon start to happen in the house.
