Congratulations are in order for G Herbo and Taina Williams, who have welcomed their first child together. 

Early Thursday morning, G Herbo took to Instagram to share a black-and-white photo of the baby’s tiny fist next to the rapper’s chest. Herbo kept his caption short and straightforward, sharing a black-and-white heart emoji.

Celebrities including Reginae Carter, Lil Tjay, DJ Envy, DJ Clue, Trae Tha Truth, Ryan Henry of Black Ink Crew: Chicago, and more shared their congratulatory messages in the comments. 

“Congrats, King. Big blessings,” wrote Sean Kingston

This is Williams’ first child, while G Herbo has a three-year-old son, Yoshon, with his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Fletcher.

In other G Herbo news, the 25-year-old pleaded not guilty to new charges in a $1.5 million fraud case Tuesday, according to MassLive. Herbo, whose birth name is Herbert Wright III, appeared via Zoom at a hearing with the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts.

In the new charges filed earlier this month, authorities accuse Wright of lying to a federal agent in 2018 about his relationship with his manager, Antonio “T-Glo” Strong, who is believed to be the ringleader in the fraud scheme.

According to the previous charges, Wright, Strong and four others were charged with allegedly using stolen identities and credit cards to purchase private jets, exotic sports car rentals and luxury accommodations since 2016. 

Herbo is due back in court on August 5.
