Rapper Kodak Black is seen in a recent clip alongside Maranda Johnson, the mother to one of his children. The clip, showing the rapper getting handsy with Johnson, was posted to The Shade Room's Instagram, leading to various responses from fans. One user writes, "Awwww idk he seems like a romantic person." Other commenters noted that Johnson seemed less than thrilled with the rapper, with one writing alongside laughing emojis, "Her facial expressions are LOUD she is beautiful though!!"
The couple also had a baby shower in December of 2021, and a clip from the event led to rumors that the pair were engaged. The video from the baby shower shows the rapper "gifting" Johnson a ring, leading to speculation surrounding an engagement. After Johnson discovered she was pregnant in April of 2021, Kodak Black's lawyer shared that the two were expecting a baby girl in September of that year. News of Kodak Black and Johnson's pregnancy followed rumors that the rapper was also engaged to his ex Mellow Rackz in February of 2021. She uploaded a series of videos to Instagram with her then-partner, where he asks her to marry him. He's seen holding a diamond ring in the video.
