XXXTentacion’s son, Gekyume Onfroy, was born over the weekend, seven months after the rapper was gunned down.
X’s girlfriend and baby’s mother, Jenesis Sanchez, welcomed the baby boy into the world on Saturday.
X’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, confirmed the news via Instagram story. “Yume has officially arrived.” Gekyume, or Yume as his grandmother calls him, was born three days after what would’ve been XXXTentacion’s 21st birthday on January 23rd.
X’s team provided the following statement after the baby was born. “XXXTentacion’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, and Jenesis Sanchez are thrilled to announce the arrival of baby boy Gekyume Onfroy—born January 26, 2019. We’re happy to confirm that Baby and Mother are healthy. Gekyume’s name is derived from a word X created prior to his passing, which means ‘a different state’ or ‘next’ universe of thought. XXXTentacion specifically chose this name for his first-born son; his family is honored to fulfill his wish and shower baby Gekyume with love.”
