There is nothing quite like HBCU love.
According to The Shade Room, Wale and his longtime girlfriend, Chloe Alexis, are the proud parents of their first child, a baby girl.
Alexis gave birth to the newborn baby Friday afternoon in a New York City hospital—Wale was scheduled to perform Friday night for the One Africa Music Fest but canceled to enjoy his new role as a father:
“[Wale] was scheduled to perform at the Barclays Center for the One African Music Fest, but just canceled. He’s still at the hospital enjoying fatherhood.
It was a loooong delivery—we’re told Chloe went into labor Wednesday. No word on the little girl’s name. Congrats!”
Both Wale and Chloe are alumni of HBCU Virginia State University in Petersburg and HBCU Howard University in the nation’s capital, respectively. So if ever you thought finding love before, during, and after the HBCU experience was nearly impossible think again!
(Wale had transferred to HBCU Bowie State University but dropped out due to academic reasons and later started taking rap seriously.)
Correction: A previous version of this article misstated Wale as an alum of Howard University. He attended Robert Morris University and Virginia State University on football scholarships, then transferred to Bowie State University but dropped out due to academic reasons. We have corrected this and apologize for the error.
