Congratulations are in order for rapper Joe Budden and his girlfriend Cyn Santana.
The couple announced on Instagram late Wednesday night that they are expecting their first child together.
“My biggest blessing… In the name of love. Thank you God!” Santana captioned a photo of herself dressed in lace undergarments showcasing her burgeoning bump.
The 24-year-old also uploaded a video of behind-the-scene footage of their maternity shoot.
Budden, 36, followed suit and shared a sweet message dedicated to the mother of his unborn child.
“I never had a friend in romance. I never thought that was possible.
I never have [sic] laughed this much or hard,” wrote the Everyday Struggle broadcaster. “I never knew you or your energy were [sic] so radiant, enigmatic even…. but I never felt this way before.”
He went on to praise Santana for having a positive impact on his life.
“Thank you for helping me rectify some generational issues, thank you for helping me get it right,” he wrote.
“Thank you for making that important to you as well. Thank you for changing my forever, forever. Thank you for hope, joy & acceptance…Because if there’s one thing you’ve taught me is that what tomorrow holds, thank GOD, I never know.”

Budden and Santana began dating sometime last year. They stopped by New York’s Power 105.1 to talk to Angie Martinez about their relationship last November.
“I couldn’t stand Joe because he comes off as a [expletive] dick,” she said. “I don’t know. It just happened. It was very organic. I’ve known Joe for like six years and never looked his way.”
Santana was previously linked to Erica Mena, a union her family wasn’t too fond of.
“My mom is Salvadorian so she’s real old school and strict,” she said laughing. “When she saw me on TV kissing a girl with my tongue all in her mouth she was, ‘Cynthia y que eso,’ and she even tried to kick me out. She called me a prostitute. It was crazy. And then she found my Smooth magazine pictures, forget about it! She really disowned me but then I explained to her that this is just how the world I’m in works and now she loves it and supports everything. She’s glad I’m back to guys.”
