"He's Getting So Big"

XXXTentacion’s son, Gekyume, celebrated his second birthday with his mom, Jenesis Sanchez, on Tuesday (Jan. 26). The little one’s mom penned a beautiful letter to her late boyfriend in honor of their son’s birthday.


“I used to think where did I go wrong in a past life when I lost you,” Jenesis wrote to XXXTentacion. “Now all I can think about is you and I must [have] done something right to create such a divine being,” Sanchez said of their son.

XXXTentacion was murdered in Florida in 2018. Some believed the rapper was killed as the result of an attempted robbery by predators who learned where XXX was headed from one of his Facebook posts. XXXTentacion’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, revealed Jenesis Sanchez was expecting a child with XXX shortly after the news of the rapper’s death spread. Gekyume was born the following year.

“He’s getting so big it’s crazy,” Jenesis wrote to her late boyfriend. “To think he’s about to be two, how times passing. He’s so grown saying words [like] ‘Mama,’ ‘Papa’ when he sees your photos. It’s a bittersweet moment for me every time. He’s so handsome and has so much personality. Super intelligent, bubbly, and full of energy. I can’t with his little attitude, just like yours *eye roll*. But lowkey warms my heart.”

Sanchez went on to thank XXXTentacion for leaving the gift of their son with her. “Thank you for making me the mother I am today,” Jenesis wrote. “I will love and nurture this child until the end. You gave me the greatest gift the universe has to offer,” Sanchez shared. “You are divine. The astral being. The person who showed me how to move like royalty. Crazy to think you aren’t around for any of these moments. Every time something new comes about. But I know you’re watching from the astral plane.”
