Since he was two years old, he and his two sisters were raised by their single mother, Lashawn Jones, in the Oakland City neighborhood.
Baby is very close to his uncle, who helped him learn and grow. The other thing is that he doesn’t even know who his father is.
Mrs. Lashwan worked hard to meet the needs of her children. It was hard for her to raise three kids on her own.
She did have a good helper, though, in the form of her sister Sadonna Grimes, who was Lil Baby’s aunt and lived next door.
Dominique loves his mom very much and always thanks her. He was photographed at the 2021 Billboard Awards with his mother.

Lil Baby has two sons, Jason and Loyal, even though he is still young. The rapper posts pictures of cute young boys to his Instagram account every once in a while.
Dominique and Ayesha Howard, his ex-girlfriend, were together for two years. In 2015, they had their first child, Jason, and also started a good job together.
The two people who used to be together broke up soon after their child was born. Howard said that dating the rapper had left her with “emotional scars” in a recent statement.
Howard, the mother of the rapper’s oldest son, seems to be dealing with the effects of their breakup, which can be hard to get over.
She was often in the news because of rumors that she and Dominique were back together. This time, however, she became famous because of a few tweets she sent about dating after she and Dominique broke up.
After he and Ayesha broke up, he was linked to model Jayad Cheaves. They also worked on the Close Friends music video.
On February 18, 2019, Baby LA (Loyal) was born to the rapper and the woman who will soon be his wife. In 2022, their son is now three years old.
