Malika Haqq and O.T. Genasis may no longer be in a romantic relationship, but they’re both equally committed to raising their son on the way.

Shortly after confirming that the rapper is the father of her unborn child, news she initially kept under wraps, Haqq, 36, said that while she may be “single,” she is “in no way alone.”

“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, alongside a smiling photo of the pair together at her baby shower. “I’ve been single the last 8 months but I am in no way alone.”

“OT 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,” she continued. “Only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores parents.”

During the baby shower, Haqq also gave a warm shout out to all of the women in her life who have stood by her side throughout her pregnancy journey.

“It’s you women that have helped me get through this pregnancy 100 percent,” Haqq said. “Everything within this room basically knows my journey and how bad I wanted [this baby]. This is the reason why I didn’t want anyone else to speak because I knew I would cry if anyone else said to me what was on their heart.”
