According to The Sun, two of Moneybagg’s baby’s mothers have opted to stay out of the spotlight. However, the outlet confirmed that Whitney White is the mother of at least two of his children. Moneybagg also has two other baby mamas whose identities are unknown.

Although Moneybagg doesn’t discuss his kids or their mothers in the media much, in June 2023, he opened up to Angie Martinez about the death of his fourth baby’s mother, Kennedy Lynette, who also went by Chyna Santana. In April 2022, Chyna was murdered by someone she believed to be a friend.

Since Chyna’s death, Moneybagg gained custody of the three children they shared. The rapper revealed to Angie on the radio host’s IRL podcast that he felt anger toward the way she died and thought it was a preventable tragedy.

“I instantly broke down, I couldn’t believe it,” the “Wokesha” rapper revealed to Angie. “I was more mad at her than anything. I was like, ‘How did you let this happen? How you let your kids — and it was so crazy ’cause when I talked to my daughter, she was just telling me at the airport, ‘I told my mama not to go.'”

Is Moneybagg Yo married?

With eight kids under his belt, Moneybagg Yo never stopped at finding love. After he and Megan called their relationship quits in 2019, he began dating Ari Fletcher that October. The pair were hot and heavy for two years but broke up after Moneybagg admitted to cheating on Ari during their relationship.

After some time apart, Ari and Moneybagg reunited in 2022 and have been solid ever since. In November 2023, Ari revealed they took the next step in their relationship privately.

During an exchange on X, formerly Twitter, with a fan stating Moneybagg “not gone marry a woman who posts her body on the internet,” Ari responded that she is, in fact, the marrying kind.

“I’ve been married for two years,” Ari posted.

Moneybagg didn’t deny being married to Ari, so it’s safe to say his longtime boo is telling the truth about their union. The good news came two years after Ari revealed to her fans on her cooking show, Dinner With the Don, that she had suffered a miscarriage when she and Moneybagg first got together. Now that the pair is reportedly married, Ari, who has a son, Yosohn, with rapper G Herbo, shared she’s thinking about expanding their family again.

“I been kind of feeling like I want a baby, but I just don’t wanna be pregnant for that long and get that big,” Ari wrote on X in October 2023.

Moneybagg has yet to say if he wants to become a father of nine or more in the future.
