Congratulations to Malika Haqq and O.T. Genasis on the arrival of their baby boy! The model and her ex-boyfriend welcomed their bundle of joy, Ace Flores, on Saturday (March 14).
“Ace Flores 3.14.2020,” Malika shared with her Instagram fans on Monday (March 16). “I can’t wait to meet him,” Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) star Kylie Jenner said in response to seeing a candid of Malika and O.T. holding their son’s hand. “Congrats, babe,” Larsa Pippen said.
Malika Haqq announced her expectancy of a child last September. “I have always wanted to be a mother and it’s still a little bit surprising but I’m overjoyed,” Haqq told PEOPLE exclusively after sharing the excitement of her pregnancy with the world. “I’m a very emotional person anyway, but this is another heightening of emotion,” the model added. “I feel really good about where I am in my life being pregnant now,” Malika said.
Some fans correctly assumed that the father of Malika Haqq’s child was O.T. Genasis before she decided to share her son’s paternity. A few of those who deemed O.T. as the child’s father also assumed that Ace’s parents would get back together on account of his expectancy. Malika assured fans that she and O.T. had an excellent relationship as then-soon-to-be parents. The romantic aspect of the union, however, was no longer a factor, according to Haqq.

Relationships don’t always work out the way we would hope but between love & friendship we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon. I’ve been single the last 8months but I am in no way alone. OT and I have attended every doctors apt and over all loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival. My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child. Our baby would not be who he is without his father and I thank God for the spirit that grows inside of me. Only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores parents.
Ace Flores is Malika Haqq’s first child. Stay tuned for more celebrity pregnancy news!
