Iggy kept her pregnancy under wraps until June 10, 2020, when she finally revealed that she had given birth to their son, Onyx. The adorable audio clip titled “Amethyst & Onyx” introduced the world to their gem of a child.

Despite their split, Iggy and Carti continue to co-parent Onyx. Their relationship remains volatile, with accusations of infidelity and disagreements over parenting. Iggy’s priority is protecting her child, even if it means weathering the storm alone.
