Watch: Camila Cabello Reveals J Balvin Helped Her With "Intense Anxiety"
J Balvin's latest collaboration is his most personal yet.
On Thursday, July 1, the artist's partner, Valentina Ferrer, shared a photo of the newborn's foot on Instagram, writing, "4 days of the best Love."
According to a source, the pair named their baby boy Rio, which the artist seemingly confirmed on Twitter. On June 27, J Balvin tweeted, "Querido Rio." And his friend Zion wrote on Valentina's post, "Saludos A Rio de Parte de Tio Z."
At the time, Valentina posted the cover story photo on her Instagram, captioning the sweet shot, "Se va agrandado la familia," which translates to "The family is expanding." While the stars, who first met on the set of J Balvin's "Sigo Extrañándote" music video in 2017, have kept their relationship mostly out of the spotlight, Valentina did share her hope for becoming a mom in a 2018 interview. "I want to have a big family—three or four kids," she told the New York Post at the time. "I'm a simple girl."
And although the "I Like It" artist tends to keep his relationship with Valentina close to his heart, he has shared details about another deeply personal journey: his mental health.

"Like any person, I've had some challenges," his November 2020 Instagram post, translated to English, read. "This time, it's anxiety and depression."
"I don't like acting or faking my happiness or pretending that everything is perfect," the 36-year-old "Mi Gente" singer added. "I'm like any person. I'm fragile and vulnerable… possibly more than all of you."
