Renowned US hip-hop veteran DMX has welcomed his 15th child with longtime girlfriend Desiree Lindstrom .
The baby is Desiree’s first child but DMX’s 15th and the rapper is only 45. The baby; Exodus Simmons popped out on Friday in New York.
However, news of the baby’s arrival only emerged later on Monday.
Apparently, the DMX is excited about the arrival of Exodus whom he said is a “blessing.” But the question remains; can he really remember the names of all his children?
Due to a performance in Arizona, DMX was not there to welcome his boy into the world. However, the moment he got the news, he rushed down to New York to be with his girlfriend and new baby.
Desiree and baby Exodus; weighing in at 6 lbs, 10 oz are reportedly doing well.
The news of the rapper and his girlfriend’s pregnancy which broke out in May caused an uproar.
Subsequently, there was major confusion over the actual number of children DMX had at the time. Numerous international sites claimed that this would be his 13th child.
Nevertheless, more reputable international organisations are now reporting that this is his 15th child. Therefore, officially, the rapper is a dad to 15 kids at the age of 45.
The hip-hop star is currently undergoing a divorce procedure with his estranged wife Tashera Simmons. The duo have been married for 11 years. The divorce is based on many reasons, one of which is that Tashera says the rapper repeatedly cheated on her over the years.
In a determined bid to evade child support, DMX filed for bankruptcy in 2013 over child support obligations. The court dismissed his application.
