The first photo of Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti’s son has been revealed.
The couple’s son Onyx was photographed in public for the first time since being born earlier this year. The adorable infant was seen in a Fendi stroller while flying out of LAX with his mother and a nanny on Sunday in the photos obtained by The Daily Mail. Iggy wore a mask while exiting the vehicle, while Onyx donned a white bucket hat and socks.
The new mom has kept her son off social media, but in June, she confirmed that she gave birth to a baby boy. “I have a son,” she told fans on Instagram. “I kept waiting for the right time to say something but it feels like the more times passes the more I realize I’m always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world.”
Added Iggy, “I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words.”
Onyx is an homage to Iggy’s birth name, Amethyst. Both are types of quartz. When a fan asked why she named her son Onyx, Iggy responded, “Onyx is a protection gem stone that can cleanse energy. It protects from negativity & gives strength.” She also revealed how motherhood has changed her. “My son changed me in all these ways before he was even born just by changing my perspective,” she tweeted.

Iggy shares Onyx with Playboi Carti, however, it’s unclear if the couple is still together. In May, TMZ reported that Carti purchased a $400,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan to transport his newborn son.
Last month, Iggy released “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching” featuring Tinashe, the first single off her upcoming album End of an Era. She also shot a video for the song, which is expected to debut soon.
