Last weekend Khloé Kardashian threw her bestie Malika Haqq the most extravagant bear-inspired baby shower, complete with balloons and a cereal bar. The magazine-worthy celebration was in honor of Haqq's baby boy, but it left us with questions regarding the identity of the child's father. Well, now, after revealing that O.T. Genasis is the baby's dad, Haqq is letting everyone know that the couple have not been together for the past eight months. 

When Malika Haqq announced that she was expecting her child, everyone was curious who the father was.

The beautiful pregnancy announcement, that was sponsored by home pregnancy test brand Clearblue, had everyone buzzing. "I listen to my heart, and I’ve decided that the rest of my life will be the best of my life," she captioned the announcement on Instagram. "I’m pregnant! I didn't know when, I just knew one day. God said it’s my turn, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the little spirit that grows inside of me. I am yours, baby, and you are mine."

Of course, most assumed that it was rapper O.T. Genasis, her former boyfriend.

First sparking dating rumors in the fall of 2017, the duo seemed to have broken up in June 2019 when Haqq took to her Instagram donning a sexy lingerie set and captioning it "single." Since then, the two haven't been spotted together like they used to, leaving everyone thinking that they had split up, and further fueling questions regarding the paternity of Haqq's child. 

But when OT Genasis was spotted at Haqq's extravagant baby shower, posting about his excitement, social media once again assumed that they were together, just simply laying low. 

In Haqq's speech at the shower, she spoke on her and the rapper's excitement for their baby boy.

And while their affectionate and friendly manner at the baby shower left many assuming that they had gotten back together, Haqq says that's not the case. 

"Relationships don’t always work out the way we would hope but between love & friendship we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon," she wrote on Instagram. "I’ve been single the last 8 months but I am in no way alone. O.T. and I have attended every doctors apt and over all loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival. My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child. Our baby would not be who he is without his father and I thank God for the spirit that grows inside of me. Only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores' parents."

Well, there are two lessons to be learned here.

First, when it comes to other people's love lives, especially celebrities, it's best not to assume anything. And two, positive and mature parenting wins every single time. 

We're rooting for the doting parents as they prepare to welcome their little guy.
