Congrats! Musiq Soulchild Expecting BABY With POPULAR Instagram Model

Posted On : April 2, 2017

Laaawd today?!! This is some news that came as quite a surprise to many of…well… ALL of Musiq Soulchild’s fans. Today (April 2, 2017) his girlfriend (whom most never even knew he was dating) confirmed that she was pregnant and hit fans with a ‘receipt’ to prove it.

Musiq’s woman is a popular Instagrammer, named Ashley “Tiyumba” Wright, who is known for her natural lifestyle, her flexible yoga poses, for her nontraditional parenting, her motivational female empowering messages, and her infamous pole dancing videos/photos.

On Sunday, April 1st, many thought Ashley was playing an April Fool’s joke on them when she announced her pregnancy on Facebook…

So to prove that she was still pregnant the next day and that it’s no joke on her end, she posted the below pregnant photo on Instagram and stated that she was ‘still pregnant’ after April Fool’s day. She made sure to tag Musiq Soulchild in the pic just so we know it’s real..

For those who aren’t familiar with the woman who will be the mother of Musiq Soulchild’s second child, Ashley gets quite a bit of praise and sometimes flack on social media over her style of parenting. She’s is a firm believer of parents connecting with their children in a more nontraditional way (in today’s society) and in the purest form.

Her Instagram oftentimes shows her posing with very little clothing on -or completely nude- with her four year old daughter either close by, or strapped to her. The poses seem like a combination between yoga, pole dancing, and some other type of flexible stances that many people could never possibly twist their limbs into…but somehow homegirl, can…

Soulchild’s girlfriend is also an advocate for public breastfeeding and sometimes gets backlash and handclaps online for showing herself breast feeding her four year old daughter in public. But Ms. Wright takes it all in stride and had to defend herself with statements like this one in past:

“Glad I can be a symbol of strength, courage, divine femininity and progression. Not everyone understands. And that is ok.”

Because of her personal beliefs – and I’m pretty sure the flexible poses helps- Ashley’s gained many supporters of her movement. Clearly, Musiq Soulchild is one of her supporters and as you can see in the above Instagram video, he has a beautiful bond with her daughter as well.

On a side note: What happened with Musiq and Meelah Williams, the former lead singer of  the group, 702? Remember Meelah? She was on R&B Divas a couple years ago, she dated Musiq for 10 years and they have a son together.

No disrespect to his new lady, but I was kinda rooting for Musiq and Meelah to reunite. They’re great friends and it seemed like they had great chemistry as a couple. But ah well…guess everything ain’t always meant to be.

Now that Musiq and Ashley have a little one on the way, I sincerely wish them a happy healthy baby and a long lasting relationship.

By the way, I’m ’bout ready for Musiq to release another classic, like his timeless 2000 joint, “Love.” Anybody with me on this?
