(JAMAICA STAR) – When dancehall artiste Beenie Man learnt that he was about to become a father again, he reportedly cried tears of joy.
The entertainer and his media personality girlfriend, Krystal Tomlinson, revealed on the weekend that they are expecting their first child together.
“[I’m] excited! Still excited. A few days after she showed me the ultrasound, I cried and said ‘Thank you’. Thank you for this blessing, Babe.’ These days when I say ‘Good morning’ and Krystal reply I have to remind her that is the baby I’m talking to because they need to know my voice. Honestly, it has been five months and I still don’t finish reacting yet,” Beenie Man said.
Despite months of speculation, the couple has been tight-lipped about the pregnancy. Well, that was until Tomlinson shared the information with The Gleaner’s Flair Magazine.
“I am surrounded by love and support from my family and friends who have been so involved and protective. But even my state of emotional readiness amazes me. I am not panicking or feeling anxious about it. I just want to stay in the moment and savour this journey,” Tomlinson said.
Tomlinson is hoping for a boy, while Beenie Man, who has fathered several children, including one with his ex wife, dancehall artiste D’Angel, has not disclosed his preference.
