DDG says fans should pursue careers as detectives for figuring out Halle Bailey's pregnancy.

DDG joked that fans of him and Halle Bailey need to look into "detective work" for being able to figure out they were expecting. He reflected on welcoming his first son, Halo, with the actress in a vlog post on YouTube titled, I'm A Dad Now…, on Sunday.

"I’m a dad. I’m a dad, y’all," he began the video. "I have a son — I have a baby boy. He’s a newborn. He was actually born last year [but] we were just waiting on the right time to basically break the news or whatever. It’s been a lot of speculation." From there, he joked fans should quit their jobs and look into "detective work," because of the rumors about the pregnancy. He added: "It's a blessing and I love him so much. I barely know him and he barely know me. We barely know each other. I just love him so much and it's just a different type of feeling."
