Does Diggy Simmons have a baby?

Many believed that the young rapper was dating the fellow musician Chloe Bailey from the R&B sensation Chloe x Halle. The two also star on Grown-ish together and have been seen smooching both on and off air, fueling rumours of their secret romance. Daniel has neither confirmed nor denied his parental status, although there were rumours on social media involving claims of infidelity.

Diggy Simmons' girlfriend apparently left him after he allegedly impregnated another woman. However, because Daniel and Chloe Bailey never officially confirmed their relationship, these accusations are mere speculations based on the songs from the album Ungodly Hour, released by Chloe x Halle in June 2020. Some of the lyrics from this album seem directed at an unfaithful partner, such as:

"And by the way; I think I just stumbled on your girlfriend's page (Oh, no); Congratulations; She sayin' that the baby comin' any day."
