Macklemore and his wife Tricia announced Thursday on Instagram they are expecting their second baby. The rapper made the announcement in a video whereby he prepared to cut into a pink and blue gender reveal cake.
“You guys have been such a huge part of our lives that I wanted to let you in on a little secret. Trisha is pregnant, and today we are going to find out the gender of our child.” Tricia is seen in the background, kissing daughter Sloane. The pink and blue cake is finally cut open – with excited parents and family members waiting in suspense – only to reveal, well, something else.
The slip of paper Macklemore pulls out of the cake lists not the gender of the baby, but an announcement that he has added a second night to his Gemini Tour at Key Arena in Seattle. The rapper made it clear, however, that both announcements are true, and there is indeed a baby on the way. “Seattle … Second time’s the charm, (and yes, both announcements are true)” was the caption posted with the video.
Which leaves us hanging as to the gender of the new bundle of joy. Macklemore, whose real name is Ben Haggerty, 34, married wife Tricia Davis in 2015. The couple welcomed first child Sloane Ava Simone that year.
On June 15, the rapper released “Glorious” featuring singer Skylar Grey, as the lead single from his second solo album Gemini. The album itself was released Sept. 22. It was produced by longtime collaborator Budo.
