Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Fetty Wap is a prolific hitmaker. Thanks to his ongoing baby mama drama, though, he’s become almost as well-known for his prolific ways between the sheets. Fetty’s present situation involves two separate women, both of whom are pregnant with his children — and one of whom, Alexis Skyy, is clashing hard with her fellow LHHH castmate (and fellow Fetty Wap baby mama!) Masika Kalysha.
But that’s not the total number of women involved in Fetty’s love life. So how many kids does Fetty Wap have? The current official total is three, but that number comes with three asterisks, as we’ll soon explain.
We’ll begin with Fetty’s youngest child: Khari Barbie, who was born on March 29, 2016. Khari is Fetty and Masika Kalysha’s first baby together; the two have been co-parenting since ending what was at one point a very bitter feud.
Here’s a shot of Masika, Fetty, and Khari Barbie all together:
As for the origin of the name “Khari Barbie,” Masika explained that she wanted to give her daughter an African name with a “strong meaning,” since Masika’s mother did the same for all of her children. “Khari” means “Queenly, “born to rule and bring joy,” and “joyful song,” and was a natural fit. (The “Barbie” part comes from Masika’s belief that her daughter “is going to be a Barbie doll.”)
Next up is Fetty’s two-year-old daughter Zaviera (born March 12, 2015). Fetty had Zaviera with baby mama and former girlfriend Lezhae Zeona — shortly after the birth, though, Fetty and Lezhae had a very public falling-out. Fetty doesn’t appear in Lezhae’s social media feeds very often, so here are two shots of Lezhae and Zaviera together, one of them involving the two rocking some Incredibles Halloween costumes:
However: it would appear that Fetty and Lezhae managed to patch things up quite nicely, since Lezhae is the second of Fetty’s two concurrent baby mamas. She’s expecting a boy. It’s not known exactly how far along she is, but, judging by this recent photo, she’s probably closer to delivery than conception:
The third of Fetty Wap’s confirmed children is his four-year-old son Aydin. (I wasn’t able to find an exact birthdate for Aydin, but a VH1 writeup on Fetty Wap’s kids confirms his age.) Fetty conceived Aydin with a woman named Reese, who lives in New Jersey and according to VH1’s article has been involved with Fetty “for the past 11 years,” which would seem to suggest that Reese and Fetty — a native of Paterson NJ — grew up together.
Judging by social media, it also seems that, of all Fetty Wap’s kids, Fetty spends the most time with Aydin. And that he and Aydin’s mother have the best relationship of all Fetty Wap’s baby mamas:
Additionally, as we mentioned above, Fetty’s fellow Love & Hip Hop Hollywood cast member Alexis Skyy is also pregnant with his child. She confirmed as much during the LHHH Season 4 reunion this past summer, and has been documenting her pregnancy like crazy on Instagram. Alexis is believed to be at the end of her second trimester; here’s a photo from late last week:
So, how many kids does Fetty Wap have? To this point, the total is five kids — three born and two unborn — with four different women. (His net worth is about to be tested.) But there have also been at least two as-yet-unsubstantiated rumors of Fetty fathering other children, meaning that the total number of Fetty Wap’s kids could be five — going on seven.
The most recent and reputable source of the rumors comes from a recent Bossip report alleging that Fetty has two “secret seeds”: one of them a daughter with a woman in Seattle, and the other a daughter with a Miami-based dancer named Turquoise.
The former woman, who owns a hair salon and goes by Princess Elaynna, allegedly gave birth to the fourth of Fetty Wap’s kids, Amani, in March of 2016. (It’s probably worth pointing out that Fetty follows Lay on Instagram.) Here’s the two of them:
Turquoise’s social media profiles are private, so we can’t show you any of her photos. Reportedly, Turquoise’s daughter is named Lauren, and she was born this past February — meaning she’ll be one year old in two months. TeaTenders did share one photo of Lauren and Amani together, albeit with their mothers cropped out:
To sum up, then: the official total of Fetty Wap’s kids is three, from three different women. He also has two more on the way: one with one of the original three mothers, and one with a fourth women. And Fetty allegedly has two more kids beyond that, both of who have been connected to him via rumor for months, but neither of whom have been formally acknowledged as his own via either Fetty or the women in question.
So, it’s either five kids with four women or seven kids with six women, depending on how far down the rabbit hole you want to go 😉
Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 is expected to begin filming in early 2018 — by which point the question “How many kids does Fetty Wap have?” will have only gotten more complicated.
