Motherhood during the COVID-19 quarantine has been challenging for Malika Haqq. The celebrity mom recently shed light on her birthing experience in the middle of a global pandemic during an episode with her sister, Khadijah Haqq McCray, on the Side By Side Show.

“It’s the most awkward time to have a baby [and] to go into labor that way,” Malika shared. “I wanted to party in the delivery room. I wanted grandmas. I wanted best friends. I wanted my sisters. I got one person: it was my son’s father,” the celebrity mom explained.

O.T. Genasis was incredible support to Malika Haqq in the delivery room. Still, there was something unsettling for Haqq to not have more people in the room.

“The idea of not having [Khadijah] in the room, my mom, or anyone else. I felt like the hospital was a jail,” Malika revealed. “I’ve been so present for [Khadijah] and my best friends’ deliveries. To not have that myself, to put it lightly, it sucked.”

Malika Haqq welcomed her and O.T. Genasis’ son, Ace, in March. The celebrity mom has been the stay-at-home parent ever since.

“I always intended to take time off when I had my kid,” Malika told her Side By Side Show viewers. “I just never intended to be so alone,” the new mom admitted. “My son has nannies that I was not able to bring in. I am more concerned about my son being safe and not being able to contract this devilish disease.”

Ace is Malika Haqq’s only child. Stay tuned for more celebrity baby news!
