Allegedly, congratulations are in order for the Portland Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons and social media influencer Aaleeyah Petty as the couple are expecting their first baby together (via New York Post).
This will be Petty’s second child. In 2019, Petty gave birth to her first child, Brenton, while keeping the identity of her son’s father a secret. It was only a few years later when it was finally confirmed that New Orleans Pelicans’ Brandon Ingram is indeed the biological father of Brenton.
However, the identity of the father of her second child is not much of a secret. The influencer recently shared pictures of her baby shower, and a particular pic caught the attention of fans and media alike. The tattoos on the man’s left arm matched those of Anfernee Simons.
Who Is Instagram Model Aaleeyah Petty, Anfernee Simons’ Alleged Baby Mama?
Aaleeyah Petty is an Instagram model with over 1.3 million followers as of today. She is an entrepreneur and a home decor enthusiast. The influencer regularly posts fashion, fitness, and lifestyle content on her social media account.
She has previously been linked to well-known NBA players like Cameron Payne, Quincy Miller, Tristan Thompson, Cam Payne, and Devin Booker. Petty was also rumored to have dated Justin Combs, Diddy’s son.
However, Aaleeyah Petty took everyone by surprise when she announced her first pregnancy. She gave birth to her son in 2019 without revealing the father’s identity, reportedly because she was uncertain about the paternity.
Many reports suggested that the Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker, who was dating Kendall Jenner then, was the father. However, in 2021, it was confirmed that Brandon Ingram was the father of her child. A few photos surfaced online showing Ingram video calling the little boy.
However, this time around, that’s not the case. Aaleeyah Petty grabbed the limelight yet again with reports suggesting that she might be the baby mama of Anfernee Simons’ child. As per BSO, “Anfernee Simons from the Portland Trail Blazers was present at her baby shower. Although Petty attempted to conceal his face in the photos, his tattoos and other family members’ pictures gave away his identity via Wags Unfiltered.”
Simons is yet to address reports of Petty’s pregnancy publicly. It’s also not certain whether he and Petty are in a relationship (via New York Post).
