The former partner of deceased rapper XXXTenacion has given birth to his son, just seven months after his murder.

Jenesis Sanchez and the artist's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, have issued a joint statement saying that they are "thrilled" at the newborn's arrival. 

“We’re happy to confirm that Baby and Mother are healthy,” the statement says. The little boy has been named Gekyume Onfroy.

Only days after the death of XXXTenacion, real name Jahseh Onfroy, the pregnancy was revealed in June of last year. The 20-year-old was shot and killed in Florida in his car.

According to the statement, the name Gekyume was “specifically” chosen by the late musician ”for his first born son”. 

The family say the name “means ‘different state’ or ‘next’ universe of thought,” adding that they are “honoured to fulfil his wish”.

A posthumous XXXTentacion record was released last year entitled Skins, and featured prominent artists such as Kanye West.

The controversial rapper was facing a shocking 15 felony charges when he died, and was accused of multiple counts of domestic abuse, including an incident of physically assaulting a pregnant woman.

The rapper had been charged with the aggravated battery of a pregnant victim, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and witness tampering, and was due in court the week after his death.


Skins was our absolute life when we were teens, and we couldn't get enough of the blisteringly edgy TV drama.

We still cringe remembering the times our parents would walk in while Effie and Freddie enjoyed yet another sex scene, so the fact that the show is now a decade old had us reeling.

It also had us wondering where our favourite characters are now, so we made it our mission to find out.

Since Skins, Nicholas Hoult has whiched from the small screen to the silver screen, with a string of films including Mad Max and X-Men.

The actor also enjoyed a fling with Jennifer Lawrence. We wonder what Michelle thought.

On the set of Skins, Hannah Murray portrayed the troubled Cassie, who battled anorexia and had a tumultuous relationship with nice-guy Sid Jenkins (who fell out of the limelight after Skins, FYI).

She has continued to shine on the small screen, with parts in Game of Thrones and an award for Best Actress at the Tribeca Film Festival. 

Kaya Scodelario-Davis aka Effie Stonem

Kaya was a feature in the first generation of Skins before becoming a main character in the second. 

Since her Skins debut, the actress has played roles in a series of films, and is currently starring as the lead in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean installation.

She is married to fellow actor Benjamin Walker, who is starring as Patrick Bateman in the American Psycho musical, and the two are currently expecting a son.

Twins Kathryn and Megan have gone down individual paths since departing from Skins.

Megan has been working hard to become an award winning body builder, and is making a documentary about her progress.

Kathryn left the UK after Skins, and is currently living the American dream starring on MTV's Finding Carter. 

Jack O'Connell aka Cook

Jack featured in a host of successful indie flicks before getting his big break, when Angelina Jolie cast him in hit film Unbroken.

The star scooped a BAFTA for his performance, and will next star as Alexander McQueen in a biographical epic about the late designer's life and work.

Luke captured our teenage hearts as moody skateboarder Freddie on Skins.

Since filming ended, the babe and a half has gone on to date Perrie Edwards, and has starred in a host of TV dramas. 




E4’s Skins launched many successful careers such as Joe Dempsie who stars in Game of Thrones , Dev Patel who was the lead in Slumdog Millionaire and now Jack O’Connell.

Jack is set to play Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie’s film, Unbroken. He will also appear in 300: Rise of an Empire and has most recently been cast in Section 6.

Section 6 is set to be a massive feature by Universal Pictures that came second on last year’s Black List of unproduced screenplays.

The film is describes as: “an exploration of the formation of Great Britain’s secret intelligence agency, Military Intelligence, Section 6, known more commonly as MI6.”
