The 26-year-old “Circles” rapper is expecting his first child with his girlfriend, whom Malone hasn’t identified publicly.
Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, tells PEOPLE, “I’m excited for this next chapter in my life, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and for since I could remember I was sad. Time to take care of my body and my family and friends, and spread as much love as we can every day.”
The star is also gearing up for the June 3 debut of his new album Twelve Carat Toothache. He announced the release date on Twitter last month, sharing a link to his website and keeping the caption simple with “Twelve Carat Toothache. June 3rd”
