For those not in the know, the 21-year-old - real name David Samuelson - has made a name for himself as a rapper, comedian and internet personality.


But it's not just his follower count where he's enjoyed great success, having announced this week that he and his partner are pregnant.

In an Instagram post published over the weekend (28 March), he shared a picture of the two alongside a positive pregnancy test.

The caption reads: "So it's official yall ima be a daddy! I'm truly blessed to create a new chapter in my life, I'm so shook and happy at the same time!

"Ima try to be the best daddy ever (no this is not a troll this is REAL) that's why I haven't been active as much."


LADbible caught up with David to find out how he feels about becoming a father.

"I feel excited about the future, I'm going to give it my 100 percent to take care of my baby," he said, adding that he's hoping to have a boy.

We couldn't be happier for him.


David launched to online stardom after setting himself up on Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter, garnering lots of attention for his unique appearance, notably his long neck.

According to Biography Pedia, this is a result of a rare condition that also means he struggles to gain weight.

He's used his look to his advantage, even collaborating with Charles McDowel - aka Wide Neck - to release two rap songs together in 2018.

But best of all, DLN doesn't take himself too seriously.


His refreshingly funny content has gained a lot of fans in the process and it's worked in his favour - he's not got a whopping 1.9 million followers on Instagram.

Besides posting hilarious skits on his accounts, David raises awareness around his condition - Marfan syndrome.

This is a genetic disorder which makes it difficult to gain weight and causes elongated fingers, arms, legs and necks.

Opening up about the potential for his baby to have the same, he told LADbible: "If they have the same condition as me that would be unique and the next long neck!"


Hats off to Daddy Long Neck - his kid's got some major footsteps to follow.
