Malika, 36, shared a photo on February 12 of her and O.T., 32, posing together at her baby shower. “Relationships don’t always work out the way we would hope but between love & friendship we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon,” she began her post.
“I’ve been single the last 8 months but I am in no way alone,” Malika revealed. “O.T. and I have attended every doctors appointment and overall loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival. My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child.”
The Dash Dolls alum also opened up about her plans to co-parent with the “Cut It” rapper. “Our baby would not be who he is without his father and I thank God for the spirit that grows inside of me,” she said. “Only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores parents.” The rapper’s real name is Odis Flores.
The former couple were first linked in 2017 and have been on-and-off over the years.
O.T. publicly acknowledged for the first time that he is the father of Malika’s child after her baby shower on February 8. He shared a picture on Instagram of himself at a photo booth captioned, “My son on da way...Give me a baby name now...GO!!!”
At Malika’s baby shower she gave a speech dedicated to her friends, family, and her ex O.T. “Choking back tears she told her guests, “Everyone that’s in this room basically knows my journey and how bad I wanted this baby. This is the reason why I didn’t want anyone else to speak because I knew I would cry if anyone else said to me what was on their heart.”
“I’m incredibly thankful to Odis Flores for my little boy,” she added.
“Malika didn’t want to make O.T. part of her pregnancy journey unless he wanted to be involved,” a source told Us Weekly in October 2019. “He’s been getting more involved as her pregnancy has progressed.”
