Several months after confirming her split from Quavo, Saweetie appears ready to start a family.
The “ICY GRL” took to Twitter Saturday to express her desire to have children, writing, “I want some babies.”
Nick Cannon, the father of seven kids, jokingly responded to the 28-year-old rapper’s tweet with a series of emojis: a curious face emoji, a ninja emoji, a laughing emoji, and a guy raising his hand emoji.
While Saweetie has yet to respond to Cannon’s tweet, she does appear to be single. Back in March, Saweetie confirmed she and Quavo had split after two years of dating. She said she had “checked out” of the relationship a long time ago, and suggested the breakup was due to Quavo’s infidelity.
“I’m single,” she wrote on Twitter. “I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.”
Saweetie continued, “I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation.”
Meanwhile, Cannon recently welcomed his seventh child.
After the tweet went viral, Cannon elaborated on his decision to put it out there on a new episode of The Nick Cannon Show, telling viewers that he got a lot of attention for his comments, but for the wrong reasons.
“I guess I was all over The Shade Room this weekend,” he explains. “Again, I think I’m very much understood. Saweetie tweeted she wanted some babies and I just replied with some emojis. As an expert on babies, anybody who can speak emoji knows what that says.”
He continued, sharing that he was trying to advise her to “take time for making such a big decision,” and that “all my ninjas are misunderstood.”
“But of course I caught heat for the tweet,” Cannon said. “They was coming for me like crazy. One tweet said, ‘The celibacy clock is tickin.’ Somebody else tweeted, ‘Here comes Fertile Myrtle [laughs].’ But my favorite one, ‘Saweetie, girl run! Have you seen what he names his kids?’ Hey, I think my kids’ names are amazing … Shouts out to Saweetie. It was all in fun. No disrespect. If she’s ready to have kids, get to it queen. We rockin’ with ya.”
