Fans of 34-year-old singer Trey Songz were thrown for a loop on Thursday (May 16) when the singer posted an image of his hand holding a baby’s foot. With little context to go on, the Internet was whipped into a frenzy, theorizing whether or not the ultimate bachelor was a father.
While speculation swirled throughout the day, the singer later confirmed that the child was indeed his, posting: “My son Noah. We are blessed and overjoyed. Peace.”
With no warning, and no specific details of who “we” includes, fan sentiments ranged from happy to playfully heartbroken.
Just this past March, Trey made headlines after shooting his shot at Megan The Stallion on Twitter.
Shock value aside, fatherhood shouldn’t be that huge a surprise to fans. The singer told The Breakfast Club four years ago that he had “been wanting children before you could even imagine,” noting that he had helped to raise all the kids in his family.
The entire HipHopDX team sends congratulations to Trey and his family.
