Cole and Hale have publicly been dating since early 2018 and appear to be madly in love. Their relationship formed nearly a year after she filed for divorce with estranged husband and former NBA player Daniel “Booby” Gibson, with whom she shares 10-year-old son Daniel Gibson Jr. Their divorce has yet to be finalized.

The “Heaven Sent” singer and Hale welcomed their first child together on Thursday, August 1. Over the weekend, the couple finally revealed their newborn’s name, Tobias. It’s unclear where the child’s name comes from, but he already has an official IG page that’s private from the public.

Cole celebrated the infant’s one-month mark last month with a sweet post, saying, “It’s been one month since this little heartbeat entered our lives. … I couldn’t be any more OVERJOYED at the amount of love he has brought with him.”
