Colombian heartthrob, Maluma, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of his first child. In a recent interview with NPR, the singer shared his joy and anticipation, revealing that he already feels a strong connection with his unborn child, to whom he sings daily.
The interview was part of Maluma’s appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk series, which celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with a line-up of talented Latin artists. The singer was seen sporting various items of clothing dedicated to his soon-to-be-born child, whom he has decided to name Paris. The name was proudly displayed on his t-shirt and around his neck in the form of a necklace. He expressed that becoming a father is a dream come true for him. “I sing to her every day. In the mornings, before I go to bed. I kiss the belly, feeling like she’s already there. It’s an incredible feeling, and I absolutely love it,” he said, beaming with joy.
The news of his impending fatherhood was first announced by Maluma in a music video for his new song, “Procura.” The song tells the story of his journey with his girlfriend, Susana Gomez. He excitedly told his fans, “I have a surprise for you tonight. We are premiering my next video, and you are about to witness something that no one else in the world has seen. I’m going to stay here with you and share this surprise with you.”
Maluma’s Tiny Desk concert, where he discusses his upcoming journey into fatherhood for the first time, will be released at 12 pm ET today on YouTube. It promises to be a heartfelt performance, filled with raw emotion.
