Ashanti said the heartfelt moment left her in tears.

Lloyd sung to Ashanti and Nelly's unborn child while performing on stage at the Met Philadelphia. Afterward, he posted a tribute to the couple's future child in a beautiful post on Instagram while sharing a photo from the performance. “Dear Baby Haynes, you are surrounded by love, by good energy, and by ppl who have prayed for your piece [sic] of mind way before you were born," he wrote in the caption. "One day I will tell you of the times I got to sing to you while still in your mothers belly, of how your mommy changed my life, and of how your dad was there for me when I needed a little love and guidance. Can’t wait to meet you and make you laugh. Inshallah, Your Uncle Ladi [infinity emoji, heart emoji, baby emoji].”

"Such beautiful and meaningful words… I truly appreciate you so much. I’m literally crying.” Other fans joined in with praise for the post as well.

Ashanti and Nelly first rekindled their romance in 2023 after spending a decade apart. Earlier this year, the two announced that they're not only engaged but expecting their first child together as well. “Motherhood is something that I have looked forward to, and sharing this with my family, fiancé, and loyal fans, who have been so supportive of my career, is an amazing experience," Ashanti told ESSENCE back in April.
