Tennis and businesswomen Naomi Osaka and rap star boyfriend Cordae announced that they are expecting their first child. Their blessing and bundle of joy comes after almost four years of dating, not bad for both 25 years old power couple.
Osaka is a four-time Grand Slam champion. She has been ranked world number one by the World Tennis Association (WTA) multiple times. Her success has opened doors for her to become one of the most marketable athletes in the world.
In 2020, she ranked eighth among all athletes in endorsement income (she was also the highest-earning female athlete of all time by annual income that year).
On top of dominating her sport and stuffing her pockets, Naomi also makes sure to use her voice for good. She has been a huge advocate for the Black Lives Matter movement.
For her activism, she was named one of the 2020 Sports Illustrated Sportspersons of the Year and was also included on Time‘s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Like Osaka, Cordae is very big on social justice also. In 2016 at a Black Lives Matter protest, he rapped among the crowd about the struggles he faced and the issues he’d been noticing in his community. Four years later, he was arrested at a Breonna Taylor protest in Louisville, Kentucky.
Congratulations to Naomi and Cordae!!
