Toni Braxton and Birdman may be welcoming a new addition into their lives. If reports from MTO News are to be believed, the singing diva and her music mogul fiance are currently expecting their first child together via surrogate.
A source, who claims to be Toni’s friend, tells the publication that she froze some of her eggs more than a decade ago. It is said that the 51-year-old recently had them defrosted and fertilized using Birdman’s sperm. “It was Birdman’s idea to have a baby,” the so-called friend explains of the lovebirds. “He was pressuring Toni, and finally she said yes.”
Fueling the rumors, last month, Birdman revealed through Instagram Stories that he and Toni were trying to bring “a lil one” into the world. “Y’all need to put some respeck on our fing name,” the Cash Money co-founder said on the social media site. “At the end of the day it’s me and my wife and y’all ns need to respec that st we just trying to work on our family ya heard trying to bring a lil one into the world.”
In addition to making people believe they are expecting a child, the post successfully sparked speculation that they had gotten married in secret. This is because Birdman referred to Toni as his “wife.”
In the meantime, both Toni and Birdman have yet to give their response on the report.
Toni and Birdman started dating in May 2016 before announcing their engagement in February last year. They briefly split earlier this year, but have since rekindled their romance. While the two don’t have any children together just yet, the “Un-Break My Heart” singer is already a mother to Denim Cole (17) and Diezel Ky (16), whom she shares with ex-husband Keri Lewis. Meanwhile, Birdman has two children from previous relationship.
