Since the announcement of her pregnancy, fans have been watching Kehlani and her baby bump grow, and this past weekend her baby girl entered the world! The Bay Area artist took to Instagram to share a post, unfortunately, it was not a reveal of her newborn which they named Adeya, rather an indirect image of what appears to be her baby blanket. In the post, Lani explained how she had a natural birth at home in her bathtub, and added it was one of the “hardest yet most powerful thing she had ever done.” The “Nights Like This” singer also added how she will be refraining from posting to spend time with her loved ones.

this weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home. unmedicated homebirth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing i’ve ever done. thankful beyond words. in love beyond comparison. refraining from posting to be family and rest, we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes, love, and support in all forms while waiting & working to bring Adeya earthside. 🧡
Javie Young- White, the father of Adeya also took to social media with the same image and the caption:
Adeya is here.
Kehlani birthed her, standing up, right into my arms. In that moment, all the indisputable pulls of intuition, random bellows of clarity, & ear-splitting life lessons I’ve received in recent years made more sense than i’ve ever needed. We came face to face with beauty. arm in arm with God. I realized I was never alone in those moments, Adeya was simply aligning things for herself haha. She doesn’t take hesitation for an answer.
It’s a blessing to have purpose within such a healthy, willful family. We’ll be spending the next few weeks resting & falling deeper in love with each other. Thank you to all of you sending uplifting & expansive energy our way, not a drop goes wasted💚
It appears Lani is already soaking up motherhood when she tweeted “she smells like frosted flakes.” Not sure if that is a common scent newborn babies tend to have, but nonetheless we are sending our congrats to the new parents and their healthy baby girl!
