Macklemore, 31, definitely knows how to ring in the new year. On Saturday morning (Jan 3.), the “Same Love” rapper posted a heart felt video on his Twitter account, announcing that he and fiancee, Tricia Davis, were expecting their first child. “We wanted to share the news with you ourselves…Love Ben & Tricia,” he wrote in a tweet that included a link to a Youtube video co-produced by Ryan Lewis.
The video opened up stating: “Today the media speculated about some big news in our life, so we decided to share it with you ourselves.” It wasn’t long from then that the rapper’s 2.57 million followers watched him lay eyes, for the first time, on his child via a sonogram. We even see his reaction when he hears the baby’s heartbeat.
The baby is expected to arrive in May of this year. We have yet to get any news of whether it’s a boy or girl and we, as many of you, can barely wait for the announcement. Congrats Macklemore!
