Chicago-raised drill rapper G Herbo welcomed a newborn baby on the same day he pleaded "not guilty" to lying to federal agents about his identity theft case.
G Herbo and fiancee Taina Williams, 23, welcomed their first child together this week. The rapper posted a B&W Instagram photo that showed him holding his newborn to his tattooed chest.
The little baby's right hand is balled up in a fist.
Herbo also has a son named Yosohn with ex-fiancee Ariana Fletcher, 25.
Love & Hip Hop: New York star Emily Bustamante is a new grandmother at 40. Taina's stepfather is the rapper Fabolous, 43.
Herbo, 25, appeared in Springfield court via Zoom from his Los Angeles home where he entered his not guilty plea on Tuesday, May 25.
He allegedly told a federal agent he had no relationship with a defendant in the identity theft case.
Prosecutors say Herbo, real name Herbert Wright III does, in fact, know the other defendant, Chicago promoter Antonio Strong.
Strong reportedly gave Herbo "valuable goods," including "private jet charters, luxury accommodations, and exotic car rentals."
Prosecutors say Herbo "knowingly and willfully made the following materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements and representations in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States."
Lying to the feds is a serious federal charge punishable by prison time and a stiff fine. He is set to go to court on the original identity theft charges in August.
Congratulations to the apparently happy couple.

Journalists slammed CNN for declaring "there is no consensus" for doctors "assigning" sex at birth.
CNN made the controversial statement while reporting a news story about South Dakota banning male-to-female trans athletes from girl’s sports.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem declined to sign legislation banning trans athletes from girls sports.
CNN reporter Devan Cole wrote, "It's not possible to know a person's gender identity at birth." He added, "There is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth."
Other reputable journalists noted that Cole does not hold a medical license.
Twitter user @Roninresearch wrote: "My wife delivered babies for 23 years and she could tell real easy what the gender was... Oddly enough so could the parents."
"I'm not a doctor, @CNN but if you look just below the waist you may get some insight," Craig Seymour wrote.
Media critic Lee Sobotka wrote, "CNN isn’t a news organization. They are straight up activists."
One Twitter user wrote: "I've gotten used to a lot of woke craziness. Never thought I'd see biological sex in scare quotes."
The Biden administration is reportedly considering an executive order banning hospitals from declaring a newborn's sex on birth certificates.

It's nearly impossible for a mother to carry a baby for 9 months and not fall in Love the moment she sees her newborn. But some women with personality disorders (and other issues) usually don't bond immediately with a newborn. Some women don't bond at all with their children. These women usually have babies for all the wrong reasons such as to keep a man or to boost ratings on a reality TV show.
