Congratulations are in order for rapper Bhad Bhabie, who recently announced her pregnancy via Instagram. The “Gucci Flip Flops” rapper posted two mirror selfies on Friday, December 1, 2023. In the picture, Bhabie wore a body-hugging white t-shirt, flaunting her growing baby bump to announce the happy news.
While the rapper, born Danielle Bregoli, didn’t reveal the father, a source confirmed that the singer is expecting her first child with boyfriend Le Vaughn (via People). The duo has kept their romance under wraps since sparking dating rumors in 2021. However, she does upload pictures once in a while. The 20-year-old rapper last shared a photo of them on November 11, 2023, sitting courtside at an NBA game.
How Bhad Bhabie Rose to Fame?
Bhad Bhabie’s journey to fame is quite unique. Bhad Bhabie first rose to fame in 2016 after her appearance on a daytime talk show, “Dr. Phil.” At the time, the rapper was 13 years old. Bhabie is featured as a troubled teen alongside her mother on the show. It was during this appearance she coined the now-infamous catchphrase, “Cash me outside, how ’bout dah?”
Following her appearance on Dr. Phil’s show, Bhabie became an internet sensation. She released her debut single “These Heaux” in 2017 and later signed to Atlantic Records. In September 2018, she released her mixtape “15.”
In 2019, the Snapchat series “Bringing Up Bhabie” documented her journey to fame. Recalling her experience on “Dr. Phil,” Bhabie said on the Snapchat series, “I’m the bad kid that my mother can’t control, so she put me on a TV show. I went from sleeping on the floor in a trailer to having a gold record in six months.”
In February 2020, the rapper grabbed headlines again when former Disney star Skai Jackson was granted a temporary restraining order against Bhabie as the latter threatened to kill Jackson during an Instagram Live. However, Bhabie accused Jackson of “liking” negative posts about her using a fake Instagram account, as per the court documents obtained by Us Weekly.
Eventually, Bhabie took a break from social media in 2020, citing “mental health” issues as the primary reason. She also sought professional help later.
In 2021, Bhabie returned to the limelight once again when she spoke about the abuse she faced at the Turn-About Ranch in Escalante, Utah. She was sent there to address her behavioral issues after her appearance on “Dr. Phil.” In the YouTube video, the rapper claimed the facility took “away necessity privileges” and “people have no sympathy” for the teenagers.
In the same year, she also launched her own record label, Bhad Music, and plans to release her debut EP. However, Bhabie did use her fame to help others as well. In 2022, along with the Educapital Foundation, Bhabie launched the $1.7 million “Bhad Scholarship” to help 1,000 students enroll in trade and technical schools nationwide.
Bhabie is now counted among the renowned rappers of the country.
