Big Sean is looking forward to stepping away from work.

The Detroit rapper is expecting his first child, a baby boy with R&B singer, Jhené Aiko. Recently, TMZ caught up with Sean Don at LAX. The reporter asked the rapper how much time does he [Big Sean] think he’ll need to take off. Big Sean replied, “Well, I’m definitely taking some time for it to just be us. You can’t really put a time limit on it”, he shared.

Big Sean and Jhené, publicly established as a couple in 2016, have not been shy about expressing their love for each other. Fans may recall their steamy collaborative project, TWENTY88, which tells the story of highs and lows in relationships. But their friendship started long before that album release. In 2013, Jhené lended her vocals to Big Sean’s “Beware” track on his second studio album, Hall of Fame. Then in 2015, they reunited for “I Know”, a track off of Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise. During this time period, the couple would perform together subtly hinting that there was more to their friendship.

Jhené shared the recap of their joyous baby shower. She captioned, “so thankful for all of our beautiful friends and family who came out to shower our baby with love✨what a perfect day it was! 🥹 we love you so,so much 💙”
