Machine Gun Kelly is the father of Casie Colton Baker. Casie was born back in 2008 when he was just 18 years old, and her mom is Emma Cannon.
Machine Gun Kelly is a very private person, so it came as a surprise when he announced that he had a daughter.
It’s unknown whether he and Emma were dating at the time she got pregnant, but he recently wrote on Instagram that he was very lucky to be Casie’s father.
Machine Gun Kelly, who is born Richard Colson Baker, appears to be on good terms with Cannon. It’s hard to say what custody agreement they have, but he does appear to see his daughter often.
When he filmed an episode of Catfish: The TV Show, he flipped out when he learned that the supposed victim had set everything up to come out as a lesbian, saying he could have spent the day with his daughter instead. The episode was filmed on Father’s Day back in 2015.
On an archived page from his official website, Kelly explains how his father kicked him out of the house after graduating from high school, telling him he needed to provide for himself.
Shortly after, Casie was born and became a new form of motivation for him to keep going and work harder. Two years later, in 2010, he started to get recognition.
Little is known about Emma Cannon. We couldn’t find any social media profiles for her, so it sounds like she has no desire to be in the spotlight. It’s not believed she and Machine Gun Kelly were ever married.
Machine Gun Kelly has been linked to a few celebrity girlfriends, including Amber Rose, but because of he likes to keep his private life private, their relationships were often kept away from the spotlight.
As well as being a dad, Machine Gun Kelly has plenty of other things keeping him busy. On top of his music, he has five projects listed in post-production or currently filming on IMDb, including Bird Box, The Dirt, Big Time Adolescence, and Captive State.
Earlier this year, he was involved in a now-famous feud with Eminem.
