X's family confirmed to Complex that the baby and mother were healthy and doing well.

"Gekyume’s name is derived from a word X created prior to his passing, which means “a different state” or “next” universe of thought," the family said in a statement. "XXXTentacion specifically chose this name for his first-born son; his family is honored to fulfill his wish and shower baby Gekyume with love."
