Rapper Professor Green (aka Stephen Manderson) and his partner Karima McAdams welcomed their baby boy, Slimane Ray Manderson, on 15 March. The pair announced the pregnancy back on 1 Jan 2021, and today, Manderson shared the cutest announcement on his Instagram page. He shared a picture of their new baby boy with a caption that read "I didn't wake up Monday morning expecting to meet you. In my mind we still had a couple of weeks to get everything ready, but you had other ideas. I've always said 'the only way to be on time is to be early'; it's nice to see you taking after me already, though you seem to have inherited your Mum's looks 😉 Privately we've endured what so many parents-to-be have, your journey to us wasn't a straight line whatsoever, it was a rollercoaster right up to your arrival."
He went on to explain some of the struggles the couple endured during the pregnancy, explaining that "I didn't allow myself to express my excitement as much as I'd have liked to, I wanted to freely shout about how excited I was about you joining us, but I was frightened. We had scare after scare during the worst of which, I said to your Mama 'if he does make it, he's grounded'. Having met you, I'm sorry. It wasn't your fault and you're totally forgiven. You're far too perfect to be mad at."
Ending the post, Green shared a heartfelt tribute to his partner Adams. "As mum's go, you've lucked out; you have the best example of what a brave, strong, passionate, loving, kind, and both considered and considerate woman is. One day I'll tell you about how amazing she's been throughout this whole process / ordeal and all the things she's soldiered on through, with all of the optimism required to see this through."
