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.
