Juelz Santana’s First Time Meeting His New Baby Boy Was “Bittersweet”

While he couldn't be there for the birth, it wasn't long before these two got to meet.

Kimbella gave birth to her new bundle of joy, Santana James, on July 3rd at 5:49am and posted an adorable picture of him to Instagram just a few hours later.

While everyone was more than happy for the new mom of three, news of the baby’s arrival was bittersweet for some–including the daddy, Juelz Santana.

The couple announced that they were having another child back in March during the season 9 reunion of Love & Hip Hop New York. Later that same month, it was reported that Juelz had surrendered to authorities to begin his 27-month sentence on weapons charges.

Now, the rapper is serving his time–which means that he wasn’t able to be there for the birth of his child. That’s a hard pill to swallow for any parent, but luckily for Juelz, it wasn’t long before he got to meet his mini Santana.

He posted a picture of the little man calling their introduction, “bittersweet” and writing, “I didn’t get to see his birth, and I know there’s a few more special moments that I’ll miss but I promise to make up for lost time!!”

Juelz knows he won’t be there for every major “first” in Santana’s life, but that’ll just make every memory they do have together that much more special. And we know Kimbella is doing a great job of holding down the fort while he’s gone.

Welcome to the world, Santana James!

If I'm not at a concert I'm at home watching TV.
