Blessed with a little Bobby

The rapper, whose real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, and his wife Brittney Noell were blessed with a baby boy last September 2019. Logic first broke the news about his upcoming fatherhood through his single "No Pressure Freestyle," released in August 2019.

Hall capped his freestyle with the surprise. "And I'm havin' a little baby./ Surprise, it's a little baby boy./ F**k TMZ, they can't get the scoop on that shit./ Welcome little Bobby to the world one time."

The artist behind "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" provided an update to his fans via Reddit in April. Breaking his social media silence, Hall told the "RattPack," his fanbase, that he is excited for his upcoming album. Moreover, he shared his experience being a father.

"This new perspective of life has been amazing," the rapper wrote. He added that he has been mainly spending time with his family and his son. "Little Bobby is so cute and the most adorable little man in da worlds!

Sermon confirmed this news with a short tweet: "Logic has spoken. Goodnight."
