“Love and Hip Hop: New York” actress Cyn Santana stole the spotlight on social media this week with a recent photo of her and 1-year-old son Lexington Budden, whom she shares with ex-fiance Joe Budden.
There’s been quite a debate among fans over which parent baby Lex most looks like, but there’s clearly no denying the child resembles his father.
The 27-year-old mother took to Instagram on Thursday evening and posted a sweet photo of herself and her son out and about. Santana posed with baby Lex on her hip as he smiled coyly for the camera. She captioned the photo, “Momma’s poppa ☺️💙.
Although fans gushed over Santana’s picture with her son, they couldn’t help but to notice the toddler’s striking resemblance to his father, Joe.
“Ain’t nothin like a momma and her son ❤️ so cute, but that baby got Joe’s whole face. Awww I just love him 😩😍”
“He’s looking like his dad more and more 😍❤️ baby joe”
“Joes genes are strong. Spitting image of his older brother 😍 he’s so cute Cyn and big”
“What a handsome little guy 🙂❤️ he’s looking like his daddy right there”
Santana and Joe welcomed their son together in December 2017, a year before getting engaged. They, however, called off their engagement sometime this year after infidelity rumors surrounded them. They now seem to be co-parenting.
The mother of one faced backlash for her ex’s remarks and quickly addressed it in a statement on August 14, writing, “Lol y’all think I give a damn about what complete strangers with ZERO information have to say about me as it pertains to my son? Y’all don’t know a SINGLE thing about anything. …. pay close attention to people’s patterns and tactics.”
It seems Santana and Budden have worked out their co-parenting differences and have their child’s best interest at heart.
