It looks like Kendrick Lamar is a father of two!

On Wednesday, the 14-time Grammy winner unveiled the cover art for his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers on Instagram, seemingly confirming the birth of his and his fiancée's second child.

In the family snap, 34-year-old Lamar, wearing a roped crown with thorns on his head with a gun tucked into his waistband, holds his and his fiancée Whitney Alford's daughter, whom they reportedly welcomed in July 2019. Alford is also seen sitting on a nearby bed holding an infant.

The couple has not spoken publicly about expecting a second child and Alford has not posted any photos of herself pregnant on social media.

"Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. Shot by @renellaice," Lamar and Alford captioned the photo on their respective Instagrams.

A representative for Lamar did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

The rapper first announced the long-awaited album last month through a document posted to his cryptic "oklama" website, seemingly titled as a play on Lamar's name, revealing that it would be released on Friday.

Lamar's Wednesday post marks a rare photo showing his and Alford's family. The pair got engaged in 2015, the "Alright" rapper confirmed during an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1. Responding to rumors that he proposed to his high school sweetheart, Lamar said, "Yeah, definitely. I'm loyal to the soul."

Lamar has managed to keep his personal life private, but in a 2014 New York Times Magazine profile, the musician opened up about Alford, saying, "She's been here since day one."

"Everybody that's been around me has been around since day one and I can't change that. I don't change for nobody," Lamar added. "People that have been by your side – you're supposed to honor that."
