Kendrick Lamar has reportedly become a father for the first time, having apparently welcomed a baby to the world with his fiancée, Whitney Alford.
According to reports, the 32-year-old rapper became a dad on Friday, July 26, after make-up artist Alford gave birth to a little girl.
Long-term partners Lamar and Alford – who have been dating since high school – have yet to make an official comment.
Sources told US Weekly how the couple welcomed their child on Friday, after keeping the pregnancy a secret.
Although Lamar and Alford have yet to confirm the news, fans have already been getting emotional via Twitter.
One person blubbed:
Can’t wait to hear the beautiful masterpieces he’ll write as tributes to his child.
That baby will be a genius in some way.

Lamar is known to be a fairly private person when it comes to discussing matters to do with his personal life. However, in 2015, he opened up about his relationship with Alford in what proved to be a heart-melting interview.
Speaking with Billboard, Lamar said:
I wouldn’t even call her my girl. That’s my best friend. I don’t even like the term that society has put in the world as far as being a companion — she’s somebody I can tell my fears to.
In April 2015, mere months after this heartfelt comment, the loved-up pair became engaged.
Congrats, maybe, to these possible new parents.
Announce Lamar Jr!
