"Nobody Knows If They Can Be A Mom Until They Are A Mom"

Olivia Sky is ready to share her side to the story of how she met Bow Wow and saved their baby from abortion. The celebrity delves into her life as a mom during a conversation with Let Them Live.

“I didn’t know if I could be a mom,” Olivia begins. “Nobody knows if they can be a mom until they are a mom,” the recording artist shares. “Even though I didn’t know what life was going to look like with a baby, I knew what life was going to look like after I had an abortion. And I knew it was going to hurt me.”


Olivia Sky moved to Atlanta when she was 20-years-old and immediately became a part of the nightclub scene, which led to her eventually meeting Bow Wow. The aspiring artist spent time with the veteran rapper, which ultimately led to intimate relations.

“When I found out that I was pregnant, I was scared [and] shocked,” Olivia shares in her Let Them Live segment. “As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I told him,” Olivia said of the timeline. I didn’t keep it a secret from him or try to wait until I was showing or something. No, I told him right away,” she reiterates. “He was shocked,” Sky said of Bow Wow’s response, “He was like, ‘Oh, we’re going to figure it out.'”

It seemed Bow Wow was on board with becoming a father again during the initial conversations. “He was very nice about it in the beginning,” Olivia says. “[He was] saying all the right things to me; saying what I wanted to hear. He was telling me that it’s up to me: my body, my decision. I just had to make sure I’m ready to change and make my lifestyle different,” Sky explains. “I was leaning more and more towards keeping my baby because of that.”

It was not until Olivia Sky reached her second trimester of pregnancy that Bow Wow started having second thoughts. “By the time I started showing, that’s when he decided to tell me he wasn’t ready; he didn’t think it was a good idea,” the recording artist reveals to Let Them Live. “But I was already five months pregnant. I already knew the gender,” the young mother shares.

Olivia Sky ultimately decided to continue with the pregnancy and welcomed her and Bow Wow’s son, Stone, last year. The celebrity mom later discovered her story as the basis of one of Bow Wow’s segments on Growing Up Hip Hop (GUHH).

“He just wanted me to be a groupie so bad,” Olivia says of the episode. “This was an accident but it wasn’t a mistake,” Sky declares. “You tried to paint it as a mistake.”

Stone is Bow Wow’s only son. The rapper has a daughter named Shai with Joie Chavis.
