Naomi Osaka and Cordae are set to welcome their new bundle of joy. The couple shared their joy with the world on Friday when they posted a photo of Cordae kissing Osaka’s belly at their baby shower. The party, decorated with pink balloons and pink flowers, featured a special message in the background.
“A little princess is on the way,” the message read.
The “Gifted” rapper and his four-time Grand Slam-winning girlfriend first shared the joyous news with their fans in January when they posted a sonogram of the baby. Osaka also shared an emotional statement at that time.
“The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that it’s the most challenging times that may be the most fun,” the tennis star wrote.
Osaka also said she gained a greater appreciation for tennis after recently taking time off from the game and now looks forward to an even brighter future.
“One thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, ‘that’s my mom,” Osaka wrote.

Osaka said in her post that she plans to come back to the court next year and compete in the 2024 Australia Open.
“Sidenote: I don’t think there’s a perfectly correct path to take in life, but I always felt that if you move forward with good intentions you’ll find your way eventually,” she added.
Cordae and Osaka were showered with love after posting their heartwarming photo from their baby shower.
“Let’s normalize women tennis pros having a family and continuing to play. The men do! Congratulations on your new princess,” one person wrote.
Cordae also got love for his Burberry shirt.
“The infamous baby shower Burberry shirt has entered the chat,” one fan wrote.
“Congratulations. Cordae a real one for the Burberry dad shirt,” another person added.
