Deceased rapper XXXTentacion’s firstborn son, Gekyume Onfroy, was born Saturday night. Jenesis Sanchez, the mother of the child, was expected to give birth sometime this week. She was a few months pregnant with Gekyume when the rapper was killed on June 18.
Cleopatra Bernard, X’s mother, posted the news to her Instagram story. “Yume has finally arrived,” Bernard wrote.
Gekyume’s name is derived from a word X created prior to his passing, which means “a different state” or “next” universe of thought,” the family said in a statement. “XXXTentacion specifically chose this name for his first-born son; his family is honoured to fulfil his wish and shower baby Gekyume with love.”
