On June 9, American rapper DaBaby took to X to clap back at a fan who called him out for posting his friends’ birthday wishes on social media but not his children’s. Using several crying-face emojis, the person with the handle @ChicB*tchxo tagged the Suge rapper and wrote:

The Not Like Us (Freestyle) hitmaker responded using a GIF and writing in his caption:

“My kids don’t have Instagram, wh***.”

When another fan sided with the rapper and wrote, “I guess they forgot you telling the kids happy birthday in person,” he seemingly agreed with her and wrote, “D*mn fool.”

For those unaware, DaBaby is the father of four children, including one stepson.

DaBaby reportedly shares a kid with fellow rapper DaniLeigh

DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, is the father of daughter Serenity, born in 2017, whom he shares with his former partner and entrepreneur MeMe. He is also the stepfather of MeMe’s son Caleb, born in 2014, from a previous relationship.

In November 2020, Serenity was featured in the music video of Dababy’s hit number More Money More Problems as Princess Renny, alongside her father. It was co-written and co-produced by SethInTheKitchen and was part of the album My Brother’s Keeper (Long Live G). The album and its songs were dedicated to Kirk’s late brother Glen Johnson who passed away around the same time.

The 32-year-old rapper has another daughter named Nova, born in 2020, whom he reportedly shares with real estate agent and interior designer Latoia Danet. She was allegedly born when they were on a “break.”

In a now-deleted post from December 2020, the rapper gushed about his 7-month-old child. Around the same time, he shared an Instagram Story of FaceTiming with his daughter.


The Cleveland native was also in a relationship with fellow rapper, singer, songwriter, dancer, and choreographer Danielle Leigh Curiel, or DaniLeigh in 2020, and was featured in her song Levi High (from the R&B/ soul album MOVIE) from the same year.

The former pair shares a daughter Velour who was born in August 2021. Following the birth of her child, DaniLeigh took to Instagram and posted a picture of her newborn with the caption, “DaBiggest” which confirmed that the father of her kid was Kirk, as the expression is often used by the Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment founder to refer to himself.
