It seems that congratulations are in order for Chance The Rapper and wife Kristen Bennett as they welcome their baby girl Marli Bennett. On September 6th, Kristen Bennett took to Instagram with a touching photo of their newborn, revealing the arrival of their second baby girl. Baby Marli is seen laying down in a onesie that says “I AM WHO HE SAYS I AM”.

The couple announced back in March they were expecting a second child, a sibling to their three-year-old daughter Kensli Bennett, who was born September 20th, 2015.

With the baby news, the 26-year-old rapper has a full plate, as he is set to begin his North American Tour. This tour’s kick-off  date is September 14th and comes in support of his last album The Big Day. The long-awaited album features major artists such as Da Baby, Gucci Mane, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Shawn Mendes, and many more.

Congratulations to the rapper for his accomplishments and chart-topping album, and once again, congratulations to the couple on the arrival of their new bundle of joy.

I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work. When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli. I apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope you’ll understand and forgive me in time. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th and you can still get tix or your refund if you are unavailable at & a few of the shows are still being rescheduled as well so stay tuned. I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW 🙏🏾🙏🏾 SIDENOTE: 9/28 CHICAGO AT UNITED CENTER IS STILL ON AS WELL AS “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FEST” “IHEART MUSIC FEST” & “MIAMI BEACH POP FEST”! ❤️
