Post Malone Confirms He’s Now A Dad And Has Got Engaged

Post Malone Confirms He’s Now A Dad And Has Got Engaged

A double congrats is in order for the rapper

A double congrats is in order for Post Malone who's just become a dad and is now engaged to his partner.

The 'Better Now' rapper shared the news on today's (13 June) episode of Howard Stern's radio show, saying that he 'kissed' his 'baby girl' as part of his morning routine.

Stern asked if he meant his child or his partner, to which he replied: "Nah, that's my daughter."

Malone - real name Austin Richard Post - also said his girlfriend is now his fiancé, having popped the question to her in recent weeks.

Post Malone is now a dad AND he's engaged!

The 26-year-old star is yet to reveal who his partner is, confirming to the host that he likes to 'keep that all quiet' and wants those close to him to make their 'own decisions'.

It's safe to say the fans are over the moon for the family, with many taking to social media to share their best wishes.

"Post Malone is officially a father to a little baby girl ... and he's also engaged," wrote one on Twitter. "Congratulations Austin we are so happy for you."

Another said, "So many good news, congrats baby @PostMalone! We love you so."

A third chimed in, "Congrats to @PostMalone on the birth of his daughter and engagement," while a fourth added, "SO HAPPY FOR HIM OMG."

The rapper confirmed the news that he and his longtime partner were expecting last month, telling TMZ: "I'm excited for this next chapter in my life, I'm the happiest I've ever been, and for since I could remember I was sad.

"Time to take care of my body and my family and friends, and spread as much love as we can every day."

It comes at a busy time for the rapper as his fourth studio album, Twelve Carat Toothache, released earlier this month on 3 June.

The album title appears to be in reference to the $1.6 million (£1.1m) he splashed out on getting diamonds fitted into his mouth.

While he's no stranger to body modifications and has an impressive collection of face and head tattoos, Post took this to the next level last year by getting 12 carat diamonds attached to his gnashers.

The rapper called on celebrity dentist Dr. Thomas Connelly, cosmetic dentist Naoki Hayashi, and Isaac Bokhoor of Angel City Jewelers to help him complete his vision of the pricey new smile.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about the process at the time, Connelly explained: "In order to make a diamond in the shape of a tooth - for example, if you get a six-carat canine tooth, you need a 12-carat raw cube. So there's a lot of waste.

Post's £1.1m diamond teeth.

"That diamond, they could have got three or four other diamonds out of it, so we had to waste it in order to get it into shape.

"It's very difficult to cut holes in diamonds without destroying them."

But it was all worth it, as Connelly added: "He's now got two functional, full diamond teeth. They light up the room. They sparkle, they shine; they're amazing."
