Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka and renowned rapper Cordae have found a harmonious rhythm in their parenting journey, creating a strong foundation for their adorable daughter, Shai.

The couple, who welcomed their bundle of joy in July, has maintained a private approach to their parenting, keeping their daughter away from the spotlight of social media. However, Naomi recently shared a glimpse into their family life, revealing that Cordae's laid-back nature and mutual respect for each other's opinions have made parenting a seamless transition.

"We've built a really good foundation," Naomi expressed to InStyle magazine. "I think it's because he's just an easygoing guy, and we both respect each other's opinions. If we disagree, we talk it out."

 

Hard times

Despite the joys of parenthood, Naomi's pregnancy journey was not without its challenges. The 26-year-old tennis star tested positive for Group B streptococcus, a bacterial infection that can lead to serious complications for both mother and baby.

This revelation brought up anxieties, particularly after the tragic passing of Olympic track and field medalist Tori Bowie due to childbirth complications.

"I was kind of starting to freak out," Naomi admitted. "There were so many things I wasn't aware of."

Fortunately, Shai has emerged as a healthy and thriving baby girl, while Cordae has stepped up as a devoted father. With Osaka resuming training in October, the focus has shifted back to her tennis career, with the Wimbledon and French Opens on the horizon.

Despite her hectic schedule, Naomi remains steadfast in her desire to be a role model for her daughter, emphasizing the importance of this chapter in her life.

"I want to be a good role model for Shai," she expressed. "I want her to see that this was an important chapter in my life."
