Malika Haqq is officially a proud new mom! Khloé Kardashian‘s BFF, who has appeared on multiple episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday, March 14 and shared a sweet snap of her son’s little hand on top of her and his father, O.T. Genasis‘, hands on Instagram.
Haqq and Genasis also revealed that they decided to name their son, Ace Flores. The excited new dad also took to Instagram following his birth, sharing a picture of his baby boy looking up at him.
Friends and fans flooded to the comments section to congratulate the fist-time mom on the birth of her son. “Ace!!!!!!! I can’t wait to meet him,” said Kylie Jenner. “Life is beautiful. Can’t wait to smell him,” wrote Kourtney Kardashian.
“Congrats!!! Love you,” their sister Kendall Jennifer added, while their other sister Kim Kardashian West wrote, “He’s perfect!!!! We can’t wait to meet him. Love him so much!!!”

Khloe also took to the comments section to publicly express her excitement, writing, “My beautiful beautiful nephew!!!!! Ace, we have been waiting for you.”
Along with the photo Genesis shared on his Instagram feed, the dad captioned the photo with an ace emoji along with the words, “Ace. I love you 03.14.20.
Haqq has previously shared that she couldn’t wait to become a mom, telling E! News, “The reason why I was so excited to learn that I was pregnant was because I knew that my life was going to change for the better, the greatest blessing that I’ve always wanted but didn’t know I was going to get, is finally here.”
In February, Haqq celebrated her pregnancy with an all-star baby shower, hosted by Khloé and her sister, Khadija Haqq McCray. “1st party thrown in my honor and I am truly floored. I couldn’t be happier that my son is the reason for this beautiful occasion,” she wrote on Instagram after the event.
“The attention to detail, overall soft textures and use of nudes was a beautiful surprise. I’m still overwhelmed with joy by this dream of a day. Special THANK YOU to my sister, my Khloé Kardashian,” she concluded.
Congratulations, Malika and Genasis!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
