Kehlani Welcomes Baby Girl After “Hard But Powerful” Unmedicated Home Birth
R&B star Kehlani is a mommy. The singer welcomed her first child, baby girl Adeya, over the weekend.
In an Instagram post on Monday, Lani disclosed that she had an unmedicated home birth, describing the experience as both strenuous and beautiful.
“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” the 23-year-old crooner captioned a photo of a baby blanket with colorful pine trees. “Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison.”
Lani, who had her first baby with guitarist Javie Young-White, talked more about her decision to have a home birth on Twitter.
“All birth is extremely hard and transformative,” she said. “Home birth is a medical decision as is hospital birth, all birth is mind blowing & powerful. … it’s a next level journey whichever way.”
While emphasizing the splendor and power of childbirth, she didn’t deny the physical pain that accompanies it.
“But I hope everyone knows no one can tell me SHIT after that because LORD…next level, no words!”
Lani said she wouldn’t be posting on social media much in order to rest and spend time with her new family but sent her gratitude to her fans for their love, support and well wishes.
Days before the birth of her child, Lani released the music video for “Butterfly,” which appears on the singer’s While We Wait mixtape that dropped last month.
