The entertainer (real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) was fatally shot back in June during a botched robbery. Soon after his death, Mom posted an ultrasound pic for his fans; apparently XXX knew knew he was going to be a father before the crime occurred.
XXXTentacion’s publicist confirmed the bittersweet news to Billboard.
The girlfriend’s identity is still unknown (perhaps for her safety). The due date is also unclear, but judging from the bump’s size, sometime later this year (according to Parents.com, moms-to-be find out the gender in the second trimester typically between 18 and 20 weeks along). We’d guess she is about four to five months pregnant, meaning Baby Onfroy will arrive this fall/winter.
Four suspects are in custody, reports The Miami Herald.
