Kehlani has officially entered a new chapter in her life as a mother.
The 23-year-old singer and her partner, guitarist Javie Young-White, welcomed their first child together, a daughter they named Adeya Nomi, over the weekend.
Kehlani announced the happy news on Instagram Monday evening (Mar. 25) alongside a photo of what appears to be a baby blanket.
“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” she wrote. “Unmedicated homebirth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. thankful beyond words. in love beyond comparison.”
She added that she wouldn’t be posting on social media for a little while she recuperates and spends time with her family. She continued: “We just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes, love, and support in all forms while waiting & working to bring Adeya earthside.”
Kehlani’s boyfriend, who, like Kehlani, is bisexual, also shared the news of his daughter’s arrival on social media.
“Adeya is home,” Javie wrote on Twitter Monday. “Kehlani gave birth at home standing up, unmedicated, into my arms as we spoke her 1st words to her. The most beautiful moment of my life … These two are my reason & resolve. We are enjoying each other & our health, resting & surrendering to love. My heart is full.”

Kehlani first announced her pregnancy last October in a since-deleted Instagram post showing off her baby bump.
In a lengthy message, she talked about having an “amazing partner” whom she trusts her body and her life with. She called who we now know is Javie Young-White her “best friend and lover.”
Kehlani wrote to her daughter: “Dearest little girl, I am so proud to be your mommy. I am so proud to have received you. I cannot wait to meet you, I know you will be 50,000 times more special than I can even imagine at this moment. I am happy to document this journey and feel the freedom any pregnant person should.”
