Jenesis Sanchez, the girlfriend of XXXTentacion, gave birth on Saturday to the little boy Gekyume Onfroy. The birth was announced Saturday evening by the mother of XXXTentacion, Cléopatra Bernard.

Gekyume's name is derived from a word the rapper had created before his death. His family defined it as meaning "a different state" or "the next universe of thought".

The 20-year-old rising star, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot dead in June in Florida as part of an attempted armed robbery. The second album of XXXTentacion started last March. In December, a posthumous album also reached No. 1.

Four men were charged with first degree murder and armed robbery by a grand jury in the death of XXXTentacion.
