SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, June 13, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — Monday was a big day for music icon Post Malone.

The rapper/singer/songwriter/entrepreneur and often resident of Utah announced Monday that he is a first-time father, engaged and will be hosting his upcoming Twelve Carat Tour in Salt Lake City on Nov. 1.

Malone, 26, opened up about his baby girl and fiancée during an appearance Monday on The Howard Stern Show. While we knew he was a future father, the news of the birth of his daughter came as a surprise. Just like the word that he is officially engaged.

The identity of his future wife has not been made public.

Malone also spoke about his upcoming tour, in support of his long-awaited and critically acclaimed album Twelve Carat Headache, which dropped to number two on the Billboard 200 chart on June 2.

Locally, Malone is known for stopping by local restaurants and posing for photos with amazed and grateful owners and servers, whose businesses always seem to benefit from the publicity.
