Floyd Mayweather confirms daughter expecting child with NBA YoungBoy
Written by Vibe Houston Staff on November 2, 2020
Floyd Mayweather announced during a recent interview that he will be adding a new title to his name: Grandpa!
The 43-year-old former Olympic boxer and welterweight champion shared the big news with Hollywood Unlocked.
“Always want the best,” Mayweather said. “If that makes her happy, then we’re happy — me and her mother.”
Mayweather’s daughter, Iyanna “YaYa” Mayweather,19, is the second of Mayweather’s five children and his only child with reality TV star Melissa Brim.
YaYa, who also goes by her rap name, “Money YaYa,” has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with her rapper boyfriend and soon-to- be “baby daddy” NBA YoungBoy.
When asked how he felt about the news, Mayweather responded, “What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what? it’s between her and her better half,” he said.

HU Staff: Kecia Gayle Kecia.Kae Hollywood Unlocked with Jason Lee; Uncensored premiered last night on Fox Soul with guest star Floyd “Money” Mayweather. While speaking with Lee and co-hosts DJ Damage and Blue Telusma, the champ held nothing back. He talked about many things including his successful career and love life but didn’t shy away from any other controversial topic like his daughter‘s pregnancy. ________________________________________________ When asked how he felt about his now-pregnant daughter Iyanna Mayweather dating rapper NBA YoungBoy —who has said a few disrespectful things about him in the past, the boxing star revealed that he simply just wants the best for her: “Always want the best.” Floyd said adding, “If that makes her happy, then we’re happy — me and her mother [Melissia Rene Brim] are happy. What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what? it’s between her and her better half.” As for NBA YoungBoy who previously referred to him as Yaya’s “bitch ass daddy,” it didn’t phase Floyd at all. Here’s what he had to say about that: ___________________________________________________ “Well, my thing is this: it has to do with your upbringing. It starts in the home first, Floyd, 43, explained to Lee. “What I’ve always taught my daughter is this: always be respectful when you’re going to anyone’s home. And whatever goes on in your home, don’t talk about it to the world. As far as NBA… I look at NBA YoungBoy as a child. I can’t get upset with a kid like that.” He went on to say, “It could’ve been one of those days for him.” __________________________________________________ Read more at hollywoodunlocked.com 📸: @foxsoul __________________________________________________ If you have a tip or suggestion, or want to talk to us about this story, Text the word “TIP” to 1-310-388-6463
Yaya is currently out on bond and facing 90 years in prison for allegedly stabbing Lapattra Jacobs, YoungBoy’s other baby mamma, during an altercation at the rapper’s house.
No stranger to the law himself, YoungBoy has been arrested multiple times and recently beat an attempted murder charge in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
This will make the fifth child for the 21-year-old rapper and the first for YaYa. The “Bandit” rapper has four other children, including four sons and one daughter.
Congratulations to the young couple. We will keep you both in our prayers…..and by all means, stay out of trouble! Precious cargo is on the way.
