Through his song Heart on Ice, the rapper rode the viral hype all the way to a hit debut album and over the last two years he has released hit songs after hit songs garnering even more following.

With his star on the rise, the singer has also managed to pique the interest of the public when it comes to his girlfriend.

As the sarcastic saying goes in rapper fanbase circles, "are you even a rapper if you don't have a baby mama?" Maybe there is some stereotyping going on here but there is some truth to the fact that rappers get many women pregnant. While the term baby mama is a little demeaning and that is not something that would be said about a white lady getting pregnant, still that is a term we are stuck with.
And according to reports Rod Wave has had one girlfriend who was pregnant and he is the father of twins. While neither his babies or his gf have appeared on his Instagram page, there is no doubt the rapper is currently in a relationship with his girlfriend. Her name on the other hand, is still a little bit of mystery to everyone.
Rod Wave is dating his girlfriend Kelsey aka Dee as fans refer to her on social media. The name comes from her Instagram profile that reads dee_.18 and the account itself is set on private mode. There is one profile picture available and she is followed by close to 20,000 followers on the image sharing platform.
She was first rumored to be the girlfriend of Rod Wave on 2020 when one fan on Twitter took snaps of Kelsey's Instagram story and put it on Twitter. This was followed by others who posted videos of the two from Instagram live recording, on YouTube. So, it is safe to say Kelsey is Rod Wave's girlfriend and she was pregnant during their time together.
There are pictures showing the cute gf of Rod with a baby bump. And we know Rod Wave is the father of twins, both daughters, so the couple are mom and dad now in 2021. It is also not certain if the couple are still together in 2o21.
It may not be certain that Rod Wave and his girlfriend Kelsey are still together but they will forever be the parents of their two daughters. As for the full name and relationship itself, Rod has to confirm it or she needs to come out publicly to put all the rumors to rest. Till then, Rod Wave and his mystery girlfriend will be gossip fodder.
