In June 2022, West Coast announced her pregnancy at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. She walked the red carpet with Fenison at her side in a floral sequined mini dress that showed off her growing baby bump. She also spoke to E! News about the pregnancy, opening up about her first-trimester nausea and praising Fenison for remaining "level-headed" through the experience.

"Raising children is not an easy thing so you really have to be like that to be a good dad. He's just so calm and relaxed and I can be a little bit crazier. I think that he's the perfect balance for me," West Coast shared.

On Father's Day 2022, the couple revealed the sex of their child. In a video posted to Instagram, West Coast is seen jumping joyously as Fenison opened an umbrella that exploded with a burst of pink confetti.

"We're having a baby girl!!! 🤗💖🎀🌸🙏🏼🙌🏼" she wrote in the caption. "Love you @domfenison thank you for coming into my life and loving me the way you do."

"I know you will be the best Dad in the world! 😘😘😘 #HappyFathersDay," West Coast added.

Before taking on a starring role in his girlfriend's music video, "Vinyl," Fenison appeared in Hailee Steinfeld's "Let Me Go" in 2017 alongside Alesso, Florida Georgia Line and songwriter Watt.

"There was definitely a good chemistry between Hailee, [director] Emil [Nava] and myself. We really wanted to tell the story behind this song because it's relatable to so many people," he said in an interview with Just Jared.

"Before our first scene I somehow ended up in charge of driving our vintage truck prop offroad, with her in the passenger seat and the whole crew in the cab," Fenison added. "After getting to the top of the hills we shot a scene with the sun setting, and it was great to see her vision for this song come to life. Hailee seems to stay true to who she is even with all her success, and it was fun working on this project with her."

He and West Coast welcomed a baby girl after "a few complications"

On Nov. 2, 2022, West Coast announced via her Instagram Story that she and Fenison are officially parents. The pair welcomed a baby girl during what she described as "the scariest yet most rewarding day of my life by far."

"After many hours in labor I ended up giving birth to my baby girl via c-section. A few complications and she didn't wanna just pop out on her own," West Coast wrote.

The Ridiculousness co-host continued, "Never felt a love like this before. She's the best thing that ever [happened] to me." She also saluted Fenison "for giving me the greatest gift in the world and being such an amazing dad already. Love you both soooo much."

West Coast and Fenison named their baby girl Bowie Breeze — a moniker the couple conjured up while listening to 80s music.

"Her dad and I loved the idea of a unisex name. We also wanted it to be unique," West Coast told PEOPLE. "The David Bowie song 'Modern Love' came on, which is a song and artist I personally love, and I saw the name Bowie and said 'That's it, babe! Bowie should be her name,' and my boyfriend Dom loved it and we decided to go with that."

She added: "Plus, we had already picked out a middle name we were set on, which was Breeze, and we thought Bowie Breeze flowed so well together."
