XXXTentacion's girlfriend gives birth to son 7 months after rapper's death

Seven months after XXXTentacion was killed, the rapper's son has been born. Jenesis Sanchez, XXXTentacion's girlfriend, gave birth Saturday to baby boy Gekyume Onfroy. The birth was announced Saturday evening by XXXTentacion's mother Cleopatra Bernard.

Gekyume's name is derived from a word the rapper created prior to his passing. His family defined it as meaning "a different state" or "next universe of thought."

The 20-year-old rising star, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was fatally shot in June in Florida in what authorities called a robbery attempt. XXXTentacion's sophomore album debuted No. 1 on the Billboard charts last March. In December, a posthumous album also reached No. 1.

Four men have been indicted by a grand jury on suspicion of first-degree murder and armed robbery in the death of XXXTentacion.

Shortly after his death, XXXTentacion's rep confirmed to ET Online that the late rapper's girlfriend was pregnant with his child. Bernard had also revealed the news on Instagram, alongside a photo of a sonogram.

"He left us a final gift," Bernard wrote in the caption.
