Savage shared a photo of the newborn on Instagram over the weekend, asserting the imprisoned singer was the child’s father, despite Kelly’s imprisonment starting in 2019.

Kelly’s representatives have not commented on or confirmed the report of the birth of their client’s purported daughter, Ava Lee Kelly, who was born earlier this month.

Shortly after, Savage followed the birth announcement with another photo and an emotional caption.

My baby girl Ava when you were born, my whole world shined so bright. I knew that it was no longer about me anymore it was about us. Though the world is cold, I promise to always protect you. I am so happy to be your mother & you bring me so much joy. 12.08.22,” Savage joyfully expressed.

Savage published a book, Love and Joy of Robert, in August, in which she publicly revealed that she was expecting Kelly’s child. The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer has been in prison since 2019, so many people were surprised and confused by the news. Some congratulated her, and some were not buying it.

The 26-year-old new mother admitted in her brief memoir that she discovered she was pregnant months after the scandalous R&B musician sent an engagement ring to her house. According to the New York Post, he sent it the day after receiving a 30-year prison term for racketeering and sex trafficking.

Those rumors were quickly dispelled by Kelly’s lawyer, who tweeted that Joy is not releasing a tell-all memoir and is not expecting R. Kelly’s child. Those tweets have since been deleted.

Savage also revealed to the outlet that the second volume of her memoir would be published the following year. She added that she continues to wish for his freedom so that he can get ready for new beginnings.

A little digging revealed that two accounts share the same name; Savage’s original one hasn’t been active since 2019.

Do we believe that this baby exists? Is his future wife the one who posted this? Give us your feedback in the comments.
