Born on March 19, 2017, in Louisiana, USA, Taylin Marquez Gaulden entered this world as the third child of the renowned rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again and his baby mama, Trinia Nia. While YoungBoy’s fame is well-documented in the music industry, Nia remains a mysterious figure, shrouded in secrecy about her career.

The Unconventional Parenthood

Like many musicians in the limelight, YoungBoy’s journey through parenthood has been unconventional. Taylin Gaulden’s birth was a result of a brief encounter between YoungBoy and Nia, which left questions about their relationship status. Moreover, YoungBoy’s previous experiences, including discovering that Kamron wasn’t his biological child, fueled his demand for a DNA test to confirm Taylin’s paternity.

The DNA Test Drama

Amidst claims of infidelity and a foggy memory of their encounter, YoungBoy awaited the DNA test results with skepticism. However, the test ultimately confirmed his biological connection to Taylin. This scientific revelation led YoungBoy to assume responsibility for Nia’s well-being during her pregnancy. Still, it didn’t rekindle their relationship—Taylin remains their sole bond.
