Published November 23, 2015

Benzino recently welcomed a son, Zino, with fiancée Althea Heart, and it seems the couple is already trying to cash in on their baby. TMZ reports that the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was holding out sharing pics of his newborn on social media because he wanted to sell them to a tabloid.

Well, looks like nobody was buying. Benzino ended up sharing the pics for free on Instagram. This is the couple’s first child together and Benzino’s third. Zino was born on November 10, 2015, weighing at 5 lbs. 11 oz. Benzino has a son and daughter from previous relationships.
