Sneaky! Macklemore Drops New Music While Also Revealing His Girlfriend Gave Birth To Their First Child TWO MONTHS Ago!
New music AND a new baby!
On Wednesday, Macklemore (Ben Haggerty), revealed that his girlfriend, Tricia Davis, had given birth to their first child on May 29.
The singer dropped the happy news while simultaneously debuting a new song featuring Ed Sheeran called Growing Up. So exciting!
In the emotional post, Ryan detailed his struggles of the past year and how he's GROWN (get it?!) since. The Seattle native credits his firstborn as the reason why he's in a better place, personally and professionally.
Read the exciting announcement (below)! where you'll find out the baby's name AND gender!
With a lot of success comes a lot of pressure.
And after Macklemore had such an incredible year in 2014, he admitted he fell off the wagon a little bit. The recovering addict and his musical partner, Ryan Lewis, had won several awards and their songs were dominating the charts.
But, the 32-year-old explained that the attention and new, crazy lifestyle caused him to recently relapse and get back into drugs, specifically marijuana and pills:
"I held it together for a while. But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren't sleeping — doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country. In terms of the media I was getting put into a box that I never saw for myself. The pressure and the fame — everything. All the clichés, man — like not being able to walk around, having no privacy, and from this TV appearance to this TV appearance, and the criticism, and the lack of connection, and the lack of meetings — all of that put into one pie was just…I just wanted to escape."
But one day, his fiancée, Tricia Davis, found some drugs he had been hiding, which forced him to press pause on his using habits, at least for a little while. But unfortunately, he explained, it didn't last very long:
"I sat in a car, a hot boxed car — I thought that was a good idea — and got high. And then the next day it was like, ‘What's up with the weed?' And once I'm there, it's over."
As much as he wanted to stop, the rapper revealed he just couldn't convince himself to quit:
"You know, like, Monday, I'ma stop…. OK. Tuesday, I'ma stop…. OK, f—k it, I might as well go on to the weekend. Sunday, I'm done. But after this bag of weed…"
It even began to invade his professional life:
