The Dream and his wife Lalonne Martinez are staying strong after revealing their fourth child, a baby girl named Elysees, was born eight weeks premature.

Martinez took to Instagram to thank her friends, family and followers for their prayers and support while also letting the rest of the world in on the news. “This birth was by far the hardest,” Martinez reveals. “May 6th, eight weeks before our scheduled delivery. I had a placental abruption and underwent an emergency c-section. (Not my first, I knew this time was critical. My husband wasn’t able to come in, I was put to sleep and my sports bra and jewelry was on). This was life or death for Élysées and I.”

Thank you family and friends for your continued prayers, support and gestures of love for our family. This birth was by far the hardest. May 6th, eight weeks before our scheduled delivery. I had a placental abruption and underwent an emergency c-section. (Not my first, I knew this time was critical. My husband wasn’t able to come in, I was put to sleep and my sports bra and jewelry was on). This was life or death for Élysées and I. I woke up in recovery, husband by my side. He said our baby girl was doing well and that was all I needed to hear! I lost a lot of blood but everything going on with me was white noise. My only concern was Élysées. Following surgery I received 5 blood transfusions and spent the rest of the week battling high blood pressure, pain, body aches, chills and fever. Seeing the divine circumstances, that lined up and brought us to the hospital…it was apparent our baby girl was ready & supposed to make her grand entrance on this day & that she did! Happy Birthday Élysées! She is a fighter and she is thriving. Born MAY 6th … 3 lbs. Baby girl you are STRONG, you are FIERCE, and you are so LOVED ♥️ #NashKids #TheNashEstate @thekingdream Thank you for being my rock and being able to keep calm (on the outside) through the chaos…and functioning off -7 days of proper sleep. I don’t know how you do it…I love you immensely and appreciate you!!
