X’s fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom spoke on it earlier last week. She shared a picture with her & the son she shares with DMX, Exodus, 5. In the caption, she wrote,
“After 7 months, we seeing you again.All the glory, all the pain, all the joy…you did it baby. Let the world see you…the man, the father and world renowned artist we all love and miss.
