Fans of songwriter Blackbear or Instagram model Michele Maturo will likely have spotted that in the early months of 2020 they welcomed a new addition to their family, a baby boy. If you didn’t even know that they were even in a relationship, you might be wondering how long the pair have been together, and just how serious is it?
Blackbear is not married, although he does have a child with his partner Michele Maturo. Blackbear and Maturo have been in a relationship since around 2017, based on the timeline of their previous relationships.
Despite the fact they haven’t announced any marriage, there are still conflicting reports from a variety of outlets claiming that the two are married. All of these claims seem to be unsubstantiated, however, unless they have some confidential information from an insider source about a secret wedding!
The Lucky Couple
If you’re just a casual follower of either of the two or aren’t completely clued up on your celebrity gossip, then you might have missed both the pregnancy and the burgeoning relationship between Blackbear and Maturo.
Maybe you’re just a fan of Blackbear’s music, or only follow Maturo on Instagram, and just want to get caught up on who’s who. For those of you that are in the dark, here’s a quick recap to refresh your memory.
Blackbear has been a music producer and songwriter for some time now, and although it’s perfectly possible that you haven’t heard of him specifically, you’ll almost certainly have heard of the artists that he has co-written songs for.
Not only are the artists that he has collaborated with some serious heavy-hitters, but the songs that he co-wrote on are also equally as famous. For example, “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber, just one of the hugely popular artists that he has worked with, on a song that was all over the charts and dominating the airwaves during 2012.
He has co-written with a variety of other high-profile artists as well, across a fairly interesting spread of genres. Among the names are the likes of G-Eazy, Machine Gun Kelly, and Linkin Park.
Perhaps it’s his apparent affinity for collaborating with rappers that have earned Blackbear the label of “rapper”, despite that being a fire that he tries to put out whenever possible, for fear of being put on the spot and asked to do an impromptu freestyle.
His Other Half
Michele Maturo is every bit the rising star in her own right, carving out her own path in the home of the social media influencer, Instagram. Her modeling career on Instagram is definitely what she’s most known for, but she’s also a writer and photographer.
Her Instagram is full of a colorful selection of photographs, documenting the Instagram model traveling the world, and enjoying life. You’ll also see a few select snaps of her spending time with her baby, and looking incredibly happy whilst doing so.
The Happy Couple
Although we aren’t sure exactly how long they’ve been together, it has to have been at least a year or two since they first became an item. One of their first posts together was in November of 2019 where the two could be seen together, managing to effortlessly look like a good match.
They’ve quite possibly been together far longer, however, seeing as Maturo broke up with Travis Mills in 2016, and Blackbear broke up with Bella Thorne in 2017. One would just have to assume that they kept it hush whilst they were still in the developing phases of their relationship.
Keeping it quiet wasn’t so much of an option when Maturo started sporting a baby bump, however. They first announced the pregnancy to their audiences and the public in September of 2019 in an Instagram post, where we could see Blackbear lovingly putting one arm around his pregnant girlfriend.
Their new baby boy, Midnight Thomas Musto, was welcomed into the world and the caring arms of his mother, in January of the following year.
The two don’t seem to have any plans for a wedding, as far as we know. Other than the occasional social media post, they aren’t particularly vocal about their relationship or their plans for the future.
Whether they get married or not, all that matters is that they look healthy and happy, along with their baby boy.
