In an announcement on Instagram last night, August 9, Cyn Santana revealed she’s expecting her first child with Joe Budden. Baby news is always exciting, but baby news starring Joe Budden is also a little unnerving.
If we’re being honest—and we are—Joe has a long history of tumultuous relationships with women like Tahiry Jose and Esther Baxter, just to name a few. He’s been accused of (and implicitly admitted to) being violent with multiple exes in the past. Will Cyn be the guiding light he needs to make a change? If you ask Joe, she’s that and more.
In a post dedicated to the mother of his unborn child, the “Everyday Struggle” cohost spoke of how in love he is, how unexpected it was, and what Cyn means to his life. The message speaks to Joe having made some (very public) mistakes and how much he’s grown thanks to his relationship with the young beauty. “Thank you for not only making me stronger, but for being strong enough for us both most times,” he wrote. “Thank you for carrying my child. Thank you for helping me rectify some generational issues, thank you for helping me get it right.”
Cyn returned the love, saying in a message dedicated to Joe “This is the way I look at you every time you enter a room. Every morning when we wake up. Every night when we fall asleep. Every time you tell me you love me. Every time you tell me I’m your Queen. Through our love, I’ve gotten even closer to God. And through him we were able to create this blessing… thank you.”
Since we first laid eyes on her, Cyn has always been the sweet, passionate, hilarious girl we love to love. Here’s to hoping Cyn & Joe continue to grow together without any salty, sad boy breakup songs.
