Draya continued:

“I have the privilege of bringing another woman into existence.”

“We are overjoyed to share our love for you, little girl,” 

“I’m am excited to speak words to the daughter I never thought I’d have.

“We are anxious about your arrival, but take your time — this world can be tough. But know you are being brought into a space of love, security, and adornment.”

She neither named Jalen nor did she tag the post to him. But Washington Wizards star Kyle Kuzma put a congratulatory comment to the post which he tagged to both Jalen and Draya. He wrote:

“It’s up familyyy @jalen @drayamichele ❤️.”

The social media backlash

“Oh Draya really thought posting her pregnancy reveal during Women’s month meant that we were gonna congratulate and celebrate her?”

Mehgan James, former Basketball Wives star commented:

17 years is wilddddd. Having fun with a younger guy is cool bc yall both grown . Having a baby by one that’s the same age as your son speaks a lot a bout your character as a person,”

Draya has a son, Kniko, 21, with an unknown person and another son Jru, 7, with former NFL star Orlando Scandrick. Another social media user wrote:

“Draya really tried to use International Women’s Day to announce her pregnancy as if we don’t know she was a deadbeat to her first son, and is now pregnant by a 22 year old who’s the same age as her son while she’s pushing 40,”

Draya responds to the backlash

A few hours after her first post, Draya responded to the backlash by means of another post that was rather cryptic. She wrote:

Get comfortable being misunderstood. Only a fraction of people will be able to truly grasp your essence. You are not on anyone else’s timeline of comprehension,”

“Also, it’s none of your business how others choose to perceive you. Most High sees you clearly – let that be enough.”
