Looks like congratulations might be in order for Maluma. Yesterday, our social media feeds were flooded with Happy Father’s Day posts and Maluma’s was no exception. In fact, his girlfriend of two years Natalia Barulich posted a loving picture of her and her man mid-kiss, but it’s the caption that is getting everyone’s attention.
“Happy father’s day, daddy,” Barulich wrote on Instagram.
Um….did anyone else get the “Maluma is going to be a dad memo”? We’re a little bit stunned by the announcement mostly because we’re not really buying that these two are solidifying their union by having a baby. Yes, they’ve been going strong for the past two years, but Maluma is in his stride right now, so we kind of doubt that they’re going to “settle down” with a child right this moment. But then we heard that Maluma actually has desires of fathering a baby at a relatively young age.
According to Hola! magazine, Maluma said, “I want to be a young father, but not yet. I still have many things to do. My career is starting, and I am living wonderful things. I have to burn stages and prepare to give all the love to a child.”
The 25-year-old also expressed his love for Barulich by telling the publication, “She is a very special person for me. I love her very much. She came into my life at the right time. It’s the first time people know something about my private life and my relationships — it makes me happy that people know that side of [me]. It’s important that people know I fall in love, suffer, and cry like anyone else.” He’s such a sensitive soul!
We love seeing this nurturing, emotional guy, but we’re not sure that means he’s expecting a baby soon. So, we decided to do some investigating on the matter. Some on social media have speculated that a) Barulich is just calling her man, daddy — which is common but also but kind of weird. b) She’s referring to Maluma as daddy because the pair owns two dogs. We’re thinking the answer is probably B, right?
Also, by the looks of her Instagram, Barulich is jet-setting around Italy. Traveling while pregnant is totally doable but you’d think that if she were pregnant she’d be with Maluma and resting during her first trimester. But upon further investigation, Maluma is also in Italy for Fashion Week. He posted a picture of himself at a fashion show, and Barulich commented, “hottest daddy ever.”
Okay, now we’re not sure what to believe. But congrats to the happy couple IF they really are expecting!
