It’s confirmed – former Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago Jevon King and popular music producer Thomas ‘Diplo’ Pentz have had a baby boy together.

King, who represented Trinidad and Tobago at the Miss Universe pageant in 2014, announced her pregnancy via an Instagram post in October of last year. She did not immediately reveal who was the father of the baby, focusing the narrative instead on her own journey into first-time motherhood. 

On Sunday, the 30-year-old shared the first clear photos of Pace to all of her Instagram followers in two touching posts honouring her son.

 

Meanwhile, in an emotional Mother’s Day tribute, Diplo, 41, confirmed that he is the father of baby Pace, who was born in March 2020.

Pace is Pentz's third child.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, Diplo paid homage to his own mother, this mother of his first two sons Kathryn Lockhart, and King.

 

In a follow-up Instagram post, Diplo revealed that he is yet to meet his youngest son due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdowns and border closures.

Pentz said he intends to meet Pace as soon as “we turn a corner on this world shutdown”.

Diplo is the co-creator and lead member of electronic dancehall music project Major Lazer.

Congratulations to the new parents.
