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 oft-time Utah resident announced Monday he’s a first-time father, engaged to be married, and bringing his upcoming Twelve Carat Tour to Salt Lake City on Nov. 1.

Malone, 26, spilled the beans about his baby girl and fiancee during a Monday appearance on the Howard Stern Show. While it was known he was an expectant father, news of his daughter’s birth came as a surprise. So did the word that he’s officially engaged.

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

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

Locally, Malone is known for stopping by local restaurants and posing for pictures with stunned and grateful owners and servers, whose businesses always seem to get a boost from the publicity.
