After Having a Baby With Colin Kaepernick, Nessa Diab Asks for Parenting Tips at the VMAs

Nessa Diab, an MTV host and radio DJ, and Colin Kaepernick, a former NFL quarterback, have welcomed their first child together. Until last Sunday, a few weeks after the birth of their child, the couple kept their pregnancy a secret.

Diab released a black-and-white photo of her and Kaepernick in a hospital bed with their newborn hours before she walked the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. “I thought long and hard about sharing our life-changing news today,” she stated in the caption. “I decided to do so because today is the first day in a few weeks where I stepped out for work with a new life title — MOM!”

Diab did not disclose the baby’s gender, name, or birth date. “Recovering after delivery has been a journey (more on that later) and honestly I wasn’t going to share anything because this is sooooo personal to us and I realized I’m a complete mama bear,” she added. “Colin is the most amazing dad and I’m soooo grateful that he is by our side for every moment of this journey.”

Diab and Kaepernick, who have apparently been dating since 2015 but are not married, have never announced their pregnancy on social media. Regardless, Diab says she’s excited to share her motherhood journey with her fans and followers.

“I know sharing this allows me to connect with you in different ways that I never imagined,” she said. “My conversations and life experiences have already changed. And my world has gotten that much bigger thanks to our sweet little baby who has shown me how to love in ways I never knew.”

Diab was mingling with the famous people at Sunday night’s Video Music Awards at Newark’s Prudential Center. Diab asked the audience for their best parenting advice before the event started and got some fantastic responses.

“The best advice is – there’s no advice,” J. Balvin stated. When asked if she will ever get a good night’s sleep ever again, he replied: “I don’t think so. That’s why I wear glasses. I don’t want to show what’s going on in my eyes right now.”

DJ Khaled told her this: “That’s your biggest blessing. Your world is gonna change. Your life is gonna change.” “Best piece of advice: It’s not about you no more,” he added. “It’s about your kids, and guess what? Your kids is you and God got you.”
