The Colombian star is expecting his first child with his girlfriend Susana Gomez
Don Juan is getting ready for daddy duty!
Ahead of the 2024 Grammy Awards, Maluma, 30, opened up on the E! Live from the Red Carpet pre-show about how much he has to celebrate: His nomination for best Latin pop album, as well as preparing to welcome his first born with girlfriend Susana Gomez.
While speaking with host Laverne Cox, the Colombian superstar admitted that, while he's excited, he's not necessarily feeling prepared.
"I’m not ready. I’m kind of nervous to be honest," the reggaeton star said of welcoming his baby, a girl they've already named Paris. "That's why they say there is no manual to have children, so I'm just gonna learn and let's see what happens."
He is sure of one thing, though: "The only thing I know is that I love that baby with all my heart."
Despite feeling the nerves, the hitmaker said he's "so happy," and wished he didn't have to spend time away from his girlfriend of nearly four years to attend the Grammys.
"It was kind of hard leaving the belly, you know, leaving Susana, leaving my baby back in Colombia," he shared. "They knew that I had to come here to work, and this is what I love too."
Maluma and his longtime girlfriend announced that they were expecting a baby girl in October 2023. The big news was revealed in Maluma's music video for his single "Procura."
The "Según Quién" artist premiered the visual during the final stop of his Don Juan Tour at Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. and sat down on the stage to watch fans take in the moment. Fans got to get their first glimpse at some of his more intimate moments showing his growing family as well as the sex reveal of his child.
While Gomez wasn't able to attend the 2024 Grammys, she previously stepped out to support Maluma at the 2023 Latin Grammy Awards in November. The couple walked the red carpet at the award show held in Seville, Spain together, and the musician was photographed giving his girlfriend's pregnant belly a kiss.
At the 2024 Grammys, Maluma is up for best Latin pop album, marking his third-ever nomination.
