Naomi Osaka’s love life is not known to many of us despite her very famous sports career. She likes to keep her relationship private; hence there is no buzz around it. That doesn’t mean the couple doesn’t make headlines around them.
The most recent one was her pregnancy announcement through Instagram. Many fans are shaking with joy about this new development in the relationship. In this article, we will take a look at the man in her life, her baby daddy.
Naomi is dating American rapper Corde. His full name is Cordae Amari Dunston. He is a 25-year-old rapper born in North Carolina and grew up in Suitland, Maryland. Growing up, his family moved a lot; hence he had to attend different schools. After completing high school, he attended Towson University. He began making music even before that. Since he wanted to pursue his music full-time, he decided to drop out.
Naomi Osaka and Cordae’s Relationship
Osaka has been dating Cordae since 2019. They are very private about their relationship and thus were not seen together that often. In an interview, Osaka mentioned that he is an essential part of her life. Apart from them mentioning each other on a few instances, we don’t get to see them that often.
We saw them together at the 2020 U.S. Open when he flew there only to see her. The sweetest thing is that he went there because she said she was feeling lonely. According to Osaka, he’s been an essential part of her journey. In 2021, they made a rare Met Gala appearance, which might have been their first red carpet-appearance together. It was the same year she became the co-host of that event.
In a 2021 Netflix documentary series, Osaka mentioned his relationship, and he even had a brief appearance in the documentary. It was then we realized she was serious about this relationship. In addition to this, she also talked about her childhood and her family, and to have an appearance in this, along with everything she considered close to her home, was what made us understand that she and Cordae share an intimate bond.
Cordae and Osaka are from two different worlds. Osaka is a Professional Tennis Player, Meanwhile Cordae is a musician. They have selected two different careers. This is not the only difference, and they are also from two different continents.
Growing up, Cordae moved a lot. In an interview, he said about how he has seen every aspect of “American Life” as he moved through the United States. Meanwhile, Naomi Osaka was born in Japan to a Haitian American father and a Japanese mother. She has lived in the US, but she is representing Japan.
Naomi and Cordae’s Pregnancy Announcement
Despite this obvious difference, they met in the middle and have since then shared the same journey. They met in 2019 and, since then, have been having a strong bond with each other. When describing their relationship, he said that he has only the perspective of a black American, but Naomi has a worldly perspective.
He said that he is traveling with the world as she holds so much knowledge within her. They value that knowledge very much, and they even recommend books to each other. They like to be in activities that feed the brain and not otherwise.
Even During Quarantine, when many families fell apart, they somehow found strength in each other. In a GQ interview, Osaka said that it was the period that actually strengthened their relationship. It was actually quality time for both of them. Since they had two different yet demanding professions, they were always apart. Quarantine was an opportunity for them to be together.
Despite this, they don’t show any PDA or cannot even be spotted together that often. When asked about this, he replied by saying that this was because he considered their relationship sacred, and when you let the outside world in, it becomes less sacred.
Four years later, Osaka officially announced that she was pregnant with their first child with Cordae. Amidst this pregnancy announcement, she assured her fans that she would be competing in the Australian Open in 2024. They are both very excited to welcome this new addition to their world, and they shared this happy news by sharing a picture of a sonogram on Instagram.
