Osaka, Rapper Cordae Expecting Baby Girl
11:16 JST, June 4, 2023
LOS ANGELES (AFP-Jiji) — Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka said she and rapper Cordae are expecting a baby girl, making the gender reveal in an Instagram post that “A little princess is on the way.”
The 25-year-old Japanese tennis star, who announced her pregnancy in January, illustrated the post with a photo of herself — baby bump front and center — surrounded by pink and lavender balloons and flowers.
In another photo Cordae leans down to kiss the burgeoning bump.
Osaka had let fans in on her pregnancy by sharing a photo of her sonogram on Instagram just days after she pulled out of the Australian Open.
“2023 will be a year full of lessons for me, and I hope I’ll see you guys at the start of the next one cause I will be back at the Australian Open 2024. Love you all infinitely,” she said then.
Osaka hasn’t played a tennis match since last September, her social media posts late last year showing her traveling in Europe with Cordae.
The couple have been together since 2019.
