Tron also included a photo of gifts to his wife in the Instagram announcement alongside an ultrasound video. Per PEOPLE, he shared a still image from the ultrasound and a message to his future daughter in his Instagram Story.

"God's miracles are beautiful 14 weeks down 2nd trimester let's go, baby," he wrote. "As your father, I will protect you with all my will. I'll be a man of my word and I will do everything in my power to provide [and] contribute to the best life for you and your mother, my beautiful wife @3ASTASIAN."

Tron is Chilli's son with music producer Dallas Austin. He is also a music artist and recently played drums behind TLC.

In an interview last year for the Paramount+ series Family Legacy, he talked about life with his famous parents.

"It's a very hard job and you can't be there all the time, even when you have kids, you have to keep going in this direction. As an aspiring father, I think of how I want to do similar with my kids," he said at the time.

"I want to make sure I'm there as much as possible, but that they also understand that daddy needs to do what daddy needs to do, and it doesn't change the love between us."
