DMX Shares A Son With Desiree
Desiree and DMX welcomed their baby boy named Exodus in 2016. Exodus, who is now 5-year-old is the youngest of DMX’s 15 children.
On the other hand, DMX has a very close bond with his youngest son, and Desiree could not stop herself from gushing over her Instagram about her son and baby daddy’s relationship.
“Their bond and love is all I could have wanted out of my life as being a mother… thank u, God, for such a blessing for sending me a wonderful man that is a wonderful father to our son.”
Desiree & DMX Got Engaged in 2019
Desiree and her finance had been engaged for almost two years and been together for more than eight. In 2019, on the occasion of their son Exodus’s birthday party, DMX proposed to Desiree — and of course, she said yes.
Desiree has essentially remained out of the limelight; however, on her Instagram, she regularly posts pictures of the trio. If you go through her social media, her feeds are littered with happy snaps celebrating their love.
On DMX’s 50th birthday, she shared a post with a sweet tribute saying,
“SCREAMING HAPPY BIRTHDAY…to my friend, my baby daddy lol, my FIANCÉ! I love you to the moon and back,”
“I know you love me too, to the moon and back regardless of what anybody thinks! This year has been full of surprises, some good and some bad, but hey, it’s nothing that we can’t get through together as a couple, as a family!”
“I appreciate the type of father you are to exodus; everybody sees a difference in you when it comes to that! The promises you made me about that you keep no matter what!”
Desiree Vehemently Defended Her Relationship With DMX

Either way, Desiree shut down the critics and defended her relationship, saying,
“People will never understand or get our relationship but guess what… f**k them!” she wrote in a 2020 IG post. “We know we love each other, we both are not perfect by any means, but we know where we stand with each other! I love you, baby!”
