There’s a baby on board this season of Love & Hip Hop! Joe Budden and Cyn Santana return to the show with their son, Lexington Budden, and we are ready to see all of the things that come with building a family.
“If you had told me five years ago, ‘When you’re 25 you’re gonna have a baby and be d*mn near married to Joe Budden,’ I would have been like, ‘What?! You’re f—in’ crazy,'” Cyn mused during a recent interview with Variety. “I never, ever knew for all those years my soul mate was right there, dating other women in front of me.”
Cyn Santana and Erica Mena had a relationship with each other during the fourth season of the show. Some viewers thought that the relationship would blossom into a modern family. They did not expect Santana to date and marry a man.
“Cyn’s lesbian relationship with Erica Mena was a big first for all of us — two women falling in love and navigating their careers in hip-hop when they both had previously been in relationships with men,” Nina L. Diaz -president of programming and development for MTV, VH1, and Logo – revealed. “Back in the day, we never saw Cyn and Joe coming together, but they’re a pretty amazing dynamic duo.” Indeed, they are!
Joe Budden and Cyn Santana welcomed their son last December. “Happy Birthday baby boy,” Cyn tweeted after giving birth. “We love you so much.” Catch Joe, Cyn, and Lexington in new episodes of Love & Hip Hop on VH1!
