Kali Uchis and Don Toliver's pregnancy annoucement sparks questions about their relationship

Congratulations are in order for Kali Uchis and Don Toliver with the news of the newest edition to their family. The pregnancy announcement came as a shock to many of their supporters. Both artists have risen in the musical industry, with Kali as a face of Latin R&B and Don Toliver's unique sound in the Houston Hip-Hop scene. Despite their growing acclaim, the relative quietness of their relationship is admirable.

Being a public mystery, many are inquiring about what they have missed. Here is a timeline of the couple's relationship so far:

2021: Music Video Speculations and Don Toliver Confirms Relationship with W Magazine.

Romance-filled rumors were sparked in early 2021 with the release of Don Toliver's sophomore album and its lead single, "What You Need," on May 4. The music video included a brief cameo of Uchis, enough for their respective fandoms to start speculating. 

On June 28, Toliver released the second single on his "Life of a Don" album, "Drugs N Hella Melodies," featuring Uchis. This time, the music video included them in a sexier and much more intimate vibe, as they appear as lovers. 

During the album's press tour, Toliver confirmed his relationship with Uchis in an interview with W Magazine, stating, "We're not crazy public or anything like that. We just vibe." 

In this article, he discussed filming the "Drugs N Hella Melodies" video in Colombia, where the Uchis family resides. He also spoke about his travels to Medellín to meet and spend time with Uchis' family. 

However, respecting the privacy of their relationship, he did not give any information about their meeting or the start of their relationship. 

2022: The Couple is Couple-ing

On April 3, at the 64th GRAMMY Awards, they made their red carpet debut as a couple, where Uchis' album "Sin Miedo (Del Amor Y Otros Demonios)" was nominated for "Best Música Urbana Album."

2023: Collaborations and Heartfelt Performances

With the March 3 release of her album "Red Moon in Venus," Uchis collaborated with Toliver on the album's sixth song, "Fantasy." Uchis would later bring out Toliver to perform "Fantasy" during her set at Coachella. 

On the same day as the song release, Toliver appeared on The Breakfast Club, where he shared that his relationship with Uchis has been a newfound experience in which he has never been so invested or enthralled in a relationship before. 

A few days later, on March 6, Don Toliver spoke with celebrity interviewer Nardwuar. He praised Uchis' musical talents and promoted her new album.

2024: Love Continues to Blossom into Something Even More Beautiful

On Jan. 11, Uchis dropped the music video for her song "Tu Corazón Es Mío / Diosa." The English translation is "Within your heart is mine." 

The video shows Kali Uchis and Don Toliver as toddlers and then transitions to them currently, showcasing Uchis' pregnant belly. 

Uchis and Toliver shared an Instagram post with clips from the music video revealing the news of their upcoming arrival. The post caption reads, "Starting our family. Don't take too long to get here little pooks, mom & dad can't wait to share our life with you".

In a recent interview with Billboard, Uchis opened up about her pregnancy, excitement over motherhood and her newest album, "Orquídeas." 

We Wish Them The Best in This Newest Chapter

While they have kept their relationship private, their endearment and admiration for each other has been open to the public. This adorable couple deserves nothing but the best in the next chapter of their lives. Their fans graciously await the arrival of the Uchis-Toliver baby.
