According to VH1, the baby news was first reported on social media (via the Shade Room) when Tiny’s niece made the announcement on her Instagram page.
“My little cousin is here. You know, last night I went to go see my auntie. And she had the baby today,” she said in a 15-second video (see below).
Unfortunately, T.I. was not present when Tiny was delivering the baby as he was performing a show in South Carolina. Later, the Grand Hustle leader when on his Facebook page to confirm the news, but also expressed disdain for family members announcing the birth before he and Tiny could do so properly.
“What really pisses me off is that I’m in South Carolina & my wife just had our baby in Georgia which is really not something anybody could help & the fact that everybody gets to announce that ‘T.I. & Tiny welcomed their baby into the world’ EXCEPT T.I. & Tiny,” he wrote.
Nevertheless, Tip is currently at his wife’s bedside and most likely celebrating the arrival of “Lucky 7.” The couple has yet to reveal the name of their newborn daughter.
This will be T.I. and Tiny’s third child together, as they are parents to Major Philant Harris and Clifford “King” Joseph Harris III. Tiny did give birth to a stillborn baby girl, Leyah Amore Harris, on March 22, 2007, six months into her pregnancy.
T.I. has two older sons, Messiah Ya’Majesty Harris and Domani Uriah Harris, and a daughter named Deyjah Imani Harris from two previous relationships. Tiny has a daughter from a prior relationship as well.
Congratulations to T.I. and Tiny on their new bundle of joy.
