Congratulations are in order for Kendrick Lamar and his fiancée, Whitney Alford: As Us Weekly reports, the pair welcomed a new baby girl today (July 26).
It's the first child for Lamar, 32, and Alford, 33, who are high school sweethearts and have been engaged since April 2015. The couple met and started dating when they were both attending Centennial High School in Compton, California.
Lamar likes to keep his private life relatively private so the news of Alford, his high school sweetheart, comes as exciting news for fans.
The pair did not reveal Alford was pregnant ahead of her giving birth.
Back in 2015, after he proposed to Alford, Lamar chatted with “The Breakfast Club” radio show about his relationship, “I’m loyal to the soil.” He later added:
“At the end of the day, you want to always, always have real people around you, period. Whether it’s male or female, and everybody that’s been around me, they’ve been around since day one… I always show respect when respect has been given, and people that have been by your side, you’re supposed to honour that.”
