The couple both posted on their Instagram page, one of the cutest pictures. The photo shows them embracing on a balcony in Downtown Los Angeles on a cloudy day with the skyline barely visible in the background. They’re also wearing matching sweatshirts.
But hold up! I have more to share. If you thought baby news isn’t big enough, it turns out that they might actually be engaged, too! Annie posted a sweet Valentine’s Day tribute to her beau where she announced the engagement.

Before his recent baby news and possible engagement with Annie Smith, Lil Xan also had a whirlwind romance with Noah Cyrus. The two of them made their red carpet debut at the 2018 MTV VMAs in August and packed on the PDA both at the show and on social media afterwards.
However the couple didn’t last very long, and has a nasty public break up, with words and allegations passed around through their social media sites, Instagram stories.
In November in one of Noah’s post she referred to her relationship with him as her “biggest mistake” in response to an online meme. And Lil Xan threw a dig towards Noah, Just a few weeks after that, Lil Xan praised his ex and Billie Eilish for being “some of the best not only female artist but in general coming up right now.”
Before you go bashing the rapper for his wrong doings, he seems to have plenty on his plate. About a week before Annie’s Thanksgiving tribute, the “Betrayed” rapper announced he was checking into rehab. “I just dropped out of SoundCloud Uni to go to rehab, I leave in like 5 days and I couldn’t be happier with this choice. I love you guys for being so supportive and can’t wait to get back clean headed ready to Finish my album!”, he wrote on his Instagram.
He also claimed that the passing of his famous friends also did a number on his mental health. He expressed Mac Miller, Lil Peep and XXXTentacion played a large role in his decision to seek treatment.
In fact, Lil Xan’s next album title BE SAFE seems to be a direct homage to Miller. Lil Xan talked about his last-ever interaction with Miller and the important words of advice that the late rapper imparted on him.
Nonetheless, congratulations on the baby and engagement!
