FLOYD MAYWEATHER is due to become a grandfather after confirming his daughter Iyanna is expecting a baby with rapper NBA YoungBoy.
Iyanna, better known as Yaya, has been dating the artist – real name Kentrell DeSean Gaulden – since 2019.
And her father confirmed the news that the 20-year-old is pregnant with Gaulden’s child.
Boxing legend Mayweather, 43, and his ex-partner Melissia Rene Brim are said to be ‘happy’ for their daughter.
He told Hollywood Unlocked: Uncensored: “Always want the best.
“If that makes her happy, then we’re happy — me and her mother are happy.
“What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what? It’s between her and her better half.”
It will be Yaya’s first child, but YoungBoy’s sixth at the age of 21, according to Page Six.
Iyanna’s relationship with Gaulden hit turmoil this year after she was arrested for assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
She was taken into custody on April 4 for “felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon” after an altercation between broke out.
She was later released on bail.
Gaulden himself has had several run-ins with the law, and was arrested as recently as September on drug and firearm charges.
According to The New York Times, the rapper was one of 16 people arrested on drug and firearm charges after the police and the FBI “received information from anonymous concerned citizens” about people with guns at an abandoned site in Baton Rouge.
As per the announcement, the police seized 14 guns, £61,184 in cash and an unspecified amount of drugs.
In December 2016, Gaulden was arrested in Austin, Texas on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder in connection with an alleged drive-by shooting.
He was released from prison in May 2017 after taking a plea deal and posting bail.
Despite his criminal past, Mayweather worth an estimated £500million according to Awaken The Greatest Within, blamed it on Gaulden’s upbringing and immaturity.
He said: “Well, my thing is this: it has to do with your upbringing, it starts in the home first.
“What I’ve always taught my daughter is this: always be respectful when you’re going to anyone’s home. And whatever goes on in your home, don’t talk about it to the world.
“As far as NBA – I look at NBA YoungBoy as a child. I can’t get upset with a kid like that. It could’ve been one of those days for him.”
