Cyn Santana surprised us all when she posted a late-night announcement on Instagram that she and beau Joe Budden are expecting their first child together.
While we don’t yet know the details of things like her due date or the gender of the child, we do know that the couple seems ecstatic. In a gorgeous, poetic post, Joe wrote Cyn a love letter that made us tear up.
He wrote this caption that accompanied a beautiful photo of the pair:
I Never…. I never knew we’d get here, it’s funny…
I never saw you in that light. Now
I never see light without you.
I never courted you, an if I did
I never acknowledged it.
I never had a friend in romance.
I never thought that was possible.
I never have laughed this much or hard.
I never knew you or your energy were so radiant, enigmatic even…. but
I never knew you……….
I never could’ve been more deprived.
I never felt this way before.
I never not thank God for every intricate detail that make you whole. It makes me whole.
I never imagined you would be as beautiful as you are today, it’s beautiful to be a part of.
Thank you for it all.
Thank you for not only making me stronger, but for being strong enough for us both most times.
Thank you for for carrying my child.
Thank you for helping me rectify some generational issues, thank you for helping me get it right. Thank you for making that important to you as well.
Thank you for every I never
Thank you for changing my forever, forever
Thank you for hope, joy & acceptance…
Because if there’s one thing you’ve taught me is that what tomorrow holds, thank GOD, I never know.
I love you.
I love y’all.
PS – ITS FUCKING LIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Joe also posted a hilarious video thanking Cyn for being the best partner ever (she tells him “I DARE you to say baby mama!”), making us even happier for them, they are too cute.
Things haven’t always been so rosy for Joe. In this Couples Therapy clip from 2015, he goes to therapy to discuss his own abusive childhood and not being there for his older son.
