XXXTentacion Son Yume Has Arrived

Seven months after the tragic death of XXXTentacion, the late rapper’s son, Gekyume Onfroy, is born. On Saturday (Jan. 26), the mother of the child and X’s girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez, welcomed the baby boy into the world.

In an Instagram story she posted Saturday night, X’s mother Cleopatra Bernard wrote simply, “Yume has officially arrived.”

This news arrives after a week of intermittent tweets hinting at the impending birth of Gekyume. Sanchez was already a few months pregnant with the baby at the time of X’s death on June 18, 2018.

X’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, had previously announced the name of X’s son with an Instagram post in November of 2018. “His name is Gekyume,” she wrote in the caption for the post, which included a baby emoji.

John Cunningham, who was X’s trusted producer while the rapper was still alive, was one of the first people to announce that the birth of Gekyume was about to come into the world. “it’s baby week 👼🏽,” Cunningham wrote in a tweet last Monday (Jan. 20).

XXL has reached out to X’s estate for comment on the birth of his child. Here’s a congrats to the mother, X’s own mother and Gekyume himself.
