Pusha T is staying consistent, even in the birth of his first child. 😂

Pusha T, real name Terrence Thornton, and his wife Virginia Williams recently welcomed their first child together, a son named Nigel Brixx Thornton, on June 11.

The 43-year-old rapper confirmed the news in an Instagram post with a couple of photos of the baby, both wide-eyed and shut-eyed.

Williams, who carries the same name as Pusha's native state of Virginia, also celebrated with a few pictures of her own, including a NASA-inspired graphic listing Nigel's weight of 7 lbs and 7 oz, as well as two pictures of her husband holding the baby.

"MY GUYS! 🙋🏾‍♀️🤎🥰," she captioned the innocent father-son shots.

In another 'Gram, Williams shared an inspirational quote from the author Mark Twain, writing, "'The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why' 🥰🙏🏾😭🥺❤️."

The couple first revealed they were expecting a child in early December, both posting the same Christmas-themed cartoon of them holding one another in a sleigh reading, "Happy Holidays. Baby T. Coming Spring 2020."

They've been married for about two years, tying the knot in Push's hometown of Virginia Beach, VA in July 2018, where his good friend Pharrell Williams acted as best man. That's a flex!

If you're familiar with Push, you'll know this latest move into fatherhood goes a bit deeper than a few posts on social media, though.

While he doesn't have any reason to hide his child, Push notoriously exposed Drake for having a secret son on "The Story of Adidon" in May 2018. So, announcing the arrival of Nigel only a few days after his birth is kind of ironic, no?

Fans were also swift to realize why the man who's made a career off rapping about dangerous drug-dealing escapades, and whose stage name comes from the term "push a ton," chose the middle name "Brixx" for his firstborn. (He's likely referencing a brick of cocaine, which is another term for a kilogram.)

Nevertheless, congrats, Push!
