Joe Budden recently shared a photo where he posed alongside his two-year-old son, Lexington. The photo showed a striking resemblance between the two.

Joe Budden seems to have recreated a replica of himself in his last son, Lexington Budden. In a recent Instagram post shared by the former rapper, the resemblance between the father-daughter duo is undeniable.

The post featured a picture of Joe wearing a black tee-shirt, which he paired with a baseball hat. Lexington, however, rocked a colorful top while appearing uninterested in the picture.

Budden welcomed Lexington with his ex, Cyn Santana, back in 2017. Following the birth, the couple had announced the birth of their newborn on their various social media platforms.

While Joe shared a picture of himself holding the infant, Santana shared an adorable photo where she was seen holding her son’s tiny fingers. She captioned:

“Happy birthday, baby boy. We love you SO much! ?”


Cyn and Budden, who started dating in the summer of 2016, abruptly ended their relationship last year. The split came after the duo had been engaged for four months.

Although the couple kept a low profile about their breakup, Santana eventually spoke about why she called off her engagement and relationship with Joe.

Budden is father to an eighteen-year-old son, Tre Budden. 


In an appearance on “Brunch with Tiffany,” the reality star disclosed that she made the decision because that was what was best for her mental health at the moment.

She further explained that the breakup had not been based on a mutual agreement because she made the decision on her own. She expressed the joy found after leaving the relationship while adding:

“In the 26 years I have of living on this earth, the best decision I made was leaving that relationship. And my son and I are amazing.”


Although the couple is no longer in a romantic relationship, they appear to have reached a common ground to co-parent their son.

Joe Budden first rose to limelight after the release of his 2013 single, “Pump it Up.” In 2018, he retired as a rapper, after which he went into broadcasting.

Joe shortly worked as a co-host on “Everyday Struggle” for eight months between April 2017 and December 2017. He currently hosts an eponymous podcast, “The Joe Budden Podcast.”

Apart from Budden’s child with Cyn Santana, the 39-year-old is father to an eighteen-year-old son, Tre Budden.
