Meanwhile, KJ confirmed the exciting news this morning, by sharing an Instagram video in which he thanks his fans for their love and support after releasing his first album, Clocks, which coincidentally, was also released on the same day little Sasha was born.

“It was definitely really scary putting those songs out but I’m really glad that I did it — I think it was cool,” KJ said, adding, “ It was crazy actually, the album was released, randomly, the same day that my son was born. He’s doing good, Clara’s doing amazing.”
