"Overjoyed. I keep the most important things in my life so far away from people because I'm sensitive. Quite possibly too sensitive to even be in this business nevertheless I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child," he wrote, referring to an earlier miscarriage.


Wale, who revealed he named his new album SHiNE when he found out he was expecting a girl, continued, "I want to be a better man than I ever been. I'm so flawed I'm so imperfect and the world knows it… I just want to honestly be the best version of myself I can be. My focus is renewed I'm infinitely in love with my princess and I truly appreciate all the love you have shown her."
