Malika Haqq Cradles Baby Ace

A for effort! Malika Haqq took to Instagram to give fans an update on how she’s handling being a new mom following the birth of her son, Ace Flores. “Doing my best, to say the least,” the reality TV personality, 37, captioned a sweet photo of herself soaking up some sunshine. 

Thankfully, Malika, who shares her newborn with ex O.T. Genasis, was met with nothing but kind words of support and encouragement from her supporters. “Don’t be hard on yourself. Being a first-time mom is overwhelming. Follow your heart and mind — and enjoy every moment. It goes by so fast,” one user commented. 

“Trying,” Khloé Kardashian’s longtime BFF replied, along with a prayer hand emoji. “That’s all you can do! You go this,” a second user added. “It’s so tough, but worth every minute. You got it, girl!” a third person chimed in, while a fourth echoed, “Yes, Malika! You are stronger than you think.” 

Given the current coronavirus outbreak, it appears as though Malika is taking care of Ace alone. However, the Dash Dolls alum did tease how coparenting with O.T. is going. On April 16, Khloé, 35, tweeted, “Coparenting is a different beast,” referring to her own struggles with ex Tristan Thompson

“Ain’t it,” Malika retweeted, adding a woozy face emoji. Even so, the famous twin couldn’t be happier. After a fan asked if it was “hard being a new mom during quarantine,” Malika assured her she “loves” spending so much time with Ace.

Given how excited Malika was throughout the duration of her pregnancy, we had no doubt she was going to be a fantastic mother. “I listen to my heart, and I’ve decided that the rest of my life will be the best of my life. I’m pregnant! I didn’t know when, I just knew one day,” she announced on Instagram in September 2019. “God said it’s my turn, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the little spirit that grows inside of me. I am yours, baby, and you are mine.”
