The time has come: Kehlani is officially a mother.

On Monday (March 25), the R&B songstress took to Instagram to make the big announcement, detailing the weekend birth of her baby daughter named Adeya Nomi via an "unmedicated home birth." "This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home," the Oakland singer captioned a photo of Adeya's blanket. "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."

While the identity of Kehlani's baby's father remained a mystery at first, time slowly revealed some months ago that Javaughn Young-White was the father. He detailed the birth of his daughter on his Instagram account, admitting that Kehlani even birthed her standing up. "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," he captioned another shot of the blaket. "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."

In addition to welcoming Adeya, Kehlani recently dropped a new mixtape, While We Wait, which features Ty Dolla $ign, 6LACK and Dom Kennedy. Click here to see the video for "Butterfly," with the singer appearing as a human butterfly.
