There's about to be a lot more Mackle in the world as the rapper confirms release of both new album and child.
We're thrilled to report that this weekend, rapper Macklemore announced that he and Ryan Lewis are expecting their first child.
Sorry, no. Macklemore and fiancé Tricia Davis are expecting their first child. That's the one.
"Today the media speculated about some big news in our life. So we decided to share it with you ourselves. Love, Ben and Tricia," starts off this heartwarming video, edited by Ryan Lewis (because there's almost nothing the pair don't do together). Tricia and Macklemore (real name Ben Haggerty) attend an ultrasound scan and get a look at their unborn baby for the first time.
Aww, look at their wee Mackleface.
While it is expected to arrive somewhere in May, the Macklebaby isn't the only big release coming this year. On the 1st of January, Mackledad confirmed on Twitter that a new album will also be on its way at some point in 2015.
It looks like 2015 is shaping up to be a big year for the Macklefamily. Congrats to them!
The internet has plenty to say about the big announcement too, but a lot of it looks like this:
