(Plantation, FL) XXXtentacion’s son, Gekyume Onfro, was born Saturday, January 26, 2019. His girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez, announced the birth, which came three days after what would have been X’s 21st birthday. XXXtentacion named his son before his untimely demise.
“We’re happy to confirm that Baby and Mother are healthy. Gekyume’s name is derived from a word X created prior to his passing, which means ‘a different state’ or ‘next’ universe of thought.”- the family said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.
XXXTentacion’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, announced days after XXXtentacion’s death in late June 2018 that “He left us a gift.” She was referring to Gekyume, born 7 months after his father’s death.
