Posting a photo of the same baby blanket, Javie gushed on Instagram: ‘Adeya is here. Kehlani birthed her, standing up, right into my arms. In that moment, all the indisputable pulls of intuition, random bellows of clarity, & ear-splitting life lessons I’ve received in recent years made more sense than i’ve ever needed.
‘We came face to face with beauty. arm in arm with God. I realized I was never alone in those moments, Adeya was simply aligning things for herself haha. She doesn’t take hesitation for an answer.
‘It’s a blessing to have purpose within such a healthy, willful family. We’ll be spending the next few weeks resting & falling deeper in love with each other. Thank you to all of you sending uplifting & expansive energy our way, not a drop goes wasted.’

Kehlani has been chronicling her pregnancy on social media, and has been open and honest with fans about life as a mom-to-be – including her battle with prenatal depression.
‘2 days away from the 3rd trimester and this has been the hardest thing ever,’ she previously wrote on social media.
‘From not knowing anything about prenatal depression nor understanding it while it’s been hitting me like a bag of bricks, to being very isolated and alone internally and externally these days, to just the normal terrible sleep/no appetite/anxiety.

Kehlani announced her pregnancy in October, though initially did not reveal the identity of her child’s father.
‘dearest little girl, i am so proud to be your mommy. i am so proud to have received you. i cannot wait to meet you, i know you will be 50,000 times more special than i can even imagine at this moment,’ she gushed on Instagram.
Kehlani burst onto the music scene after competing with her group, PopLyfe, on America’s Got Talent in 2011.
She is now a Grammy nominated artist with hits including Distraction and You Should Be Here.
