She wrote on Instagram: “This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home. Unmedicated homebirth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison. Refraining from posting to be [with] family and rest, we just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes, love, and support in all forms while waiting & working to bring Adeya earthside.”
Kehlani previously confessed she is “really excited” to give birth because she’s always been “interested” in the “extreme pain but also extreme beauty” of childbirth.
She said: “This is weird but I’m really excited to [give] birth. I’m really excited to experience that, just because I’ve always been interested in the birth process my whole life. If I had enough free time and I wasn’t wrapped up in music, I’d probably be a doula or something. But just to feel what the surrender feels like – completely surrendering to the entire process of being in extreme pain but also extreme beauty, it’s very ceremonial for me. So I’m really excited for that.”
Kehlani had also opened up about her battle with prenatal depression, as she insisted her pregnancy has been difficult.

been hesitant to be all preggo on instagram because it seems to invoke some kind of crazy negativity in a lot of people and i want to protect mine and her energy alike. we are so healthy, happy, and abundant tho! we are more present than i have ever been alone, more strong than i have ever been on my own. 6 months and i feel like time is flying. this is my most favorite journey i have ever embarked on, the greatest path i have ever taken. navigating today’s day of mourning with the intention to heal up with loved ones, share nourishment in the form of yummy food and laughter, and gently remember history & the never ending fight of our ancestors to this day. thank you for everyone who has ever came before me, and love and strength to those who come next. not celebration, just giving thanks. gratitude always, in all ways. love you! (thank you @buddhajewelryorganics for the ear adornment i feel so royal!!!)
She wrote at the time: “Two days away from the third trimester and this has been the hardest thing ever. From not knowing anything about prenatal depression nor understanding it while it’s been hitting me like a bag of bricks, to being very isolated and alone internally and externally these days, to just the normal terrible sleep/no appetite/anxiety. The struggle to recognise your body in the mirror, the struggle to not feel like no matter what, no one understands.”
