Iggy Azalea has been pretty quiet lately, and now we know one tiny reason why. In an Instagram Story, the rapper revealed on Wednesday (June 10) that she is now a mother.

«I have a son,» she wrote in a message to fans. «I kept waiting for the right time to say something but if feels like the more time passes the more I realize I’m always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world.»

At press time the Australian-born «Lola» rapper (born Amethyst Amelia Kelly), 30, had not shared the name of the baby’s father or any additional information about when the baby was born. «I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words,» she wrote of why she’s been quiet about the happy news despite rumors swirling for months that she was a new mom.

A spokesperson for Azalea has not yet responded to a request for comment.

In May, Azalea took to social media to show off her curves in the wake of rumors she recently gave birth to her first child with fellow rapper Playboi Carti. «For the record, I didn’t actually go anywhere. Just a lil harmless quarantine dress up situation,» she captioned the post, in which she’s seen strutting across a darkened driveway in a curve-hugging lilac velvet minidress. In a separate post, she showed off her glam makeup from the look with a simple purple heart emoji.

Azalea returned from a self-imposed social media break earlier in March by sharing her first post since Dec. 31, 2019.

As cinemas prepare to reopen across the U.S., Sony announced Tuesday that The Broken Hearts Gallery will be released on the big screen July 10.

The rom-com, from Stage 6 Films, will be the first new title from a major Hollywood studio to unfurl in theaters since the coronavirus pandemic forced them to go dark in the latter part of March. Several weeks ago, indie studio Solstice Studios announced that the Russell Crowe thriller Unhinged will open on July 1.

The Broken Hearts Gallery stars Geraldine Viswanathan, Dacre Montgomery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Molly Gordon, Phillipa Soo, Suki Waterhouse, Arturo Castro, Ego Nwodim, Taylor Hill and Bernadette Peters. Selena Gomez is an executive producer.

In a competitive situation, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions’ Stage 6 Films says it acquired worldwide rights to writer and director Natalie Krinsky’s directorial debut from producer and financier No Trace Camping. Elevation Pictures will distribute the film in Canada.

«Hearing from more female writers and directors is very much needed. Natalie is a wonderful talent and I am happy to be a part of her debut film. I understand people’s concerns regarding returning to activities we all loved prior to COVID-19. I hope everyone will listen to scientists’ recommendations and consider others’ health and safety while enjoying the movie theater experience,» Selena Gomez, an executive producer on the film, said in a statement.

«Now more than ever, The Broken Hearts Gallery will resonate with audiences ready for a feel-good moviegoing experience this summer,» Sony’s Motion Picture Group president Josh Greenstein added. «We have faith in a theatrical rebound, and we look forward to being there right out of the gate with our exhibition partners’ anticipated reemergence, as — and when — state-by-state safety guidelines are met.»

Endeavor Content and Jamie Feldman of LGNAFC negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
