Joe Budden and Girlfriend Cyn Santana Expecting First Child

Congratulations are in order for Joe Budden and his girlfriend Cyn Santana who is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

The Slaughterhouse rapper and the former Love and Hip Hop star have been dating for over a year and now they are taking their relationship to the next level. Joe Budden made the announcement on Instagram on Wednesday night with a poem. Santana also broke the news on Instagram saying, “My biggest blessing… In the name of love. Thank You God!”

Budden came through with a photo of himself and his baby mama wearing all white that he captioned with a heartfelt poem. “I Never. I never knew we’d get here, it’s funny,” he wrote. “I never saw you in that light. Now I never see light without you. I never courted you, an if I did I never acknowledged it. I never had a friend in romance. I never thought that was possible. I never have laughed this much or hard. I never knew you or your energy were so radiant, enigmatic even… but I never knew you. I never could’ve been more deprived.”

There have been rumors floating around since around May of this year claiming that Cyn Santana is pregnant but both she and Budden denied the allegations. Back then the Love and Hip Hop star posted a cryptic message on social media that reads, “Today I become a woman. A whole, complete woman. I am excited beyond words.” Judging from the size of her baby bump, those rumors might very well be true back then.

In November last year, Joe Budden had to respond to more pregnancy rumors on Twitter. “We’re not, she just eats like we are,” the rapper tweeted. The New York emcee will likely make a formal announcement on his Everyday Struggle show tomorrow.
