Despite being one of the biggest artists on the planet and paving the way for the current generation of conscious rap, Kendrick Lamar often stays out of the spotlight. The “HUMBLE” rapper hasn’t released a solo album since 2017’s DAMN., and he’s apparently been quietly busy focusing on his family instead.

Us Weekly reports that Kendrick Lamar and fiancée Whitney Alford welcomed their first child on Friday, July 26. Whitney, a 33-year-old makeup artist, birthed a baby girl after the notoriously private couple kept the pregnancy a secret.

The high school sweethearts confirmed their engagement in April of 2015.

Kendrick himself has yet to comment on or confirm the reports, but he also hasn’t posted on Instagram since October of 2018. His Twitter isn’t much more active, with just a few posts supporting his friends sprinkled over the last year.

Congrats to Kendrick and Whitney!

Kendrick's latest musical releases have been centered on films. He contributed to the Creed II soundtrack shortly after producing the Black Panther album.
