Machine Gun Kelly is introducing the world to his mother.
On Thursday, the rapper took to Instagram to share a photo of him with his mom. The two are all smiles, leaning into each other as MGK throws up two middle fingers and his mom holds up a peace sign.
“introducing … my mom ❤️” Kelly captioned the post.
The photo was posted one year after MGK reconnected with his mother for the first time since she abandoned him and his father when he was just 9 years old.
Back then, he thanked his fans for inspiring the reunion. “Wild story but after all these years, the fans are responsible for me and my mom finally reconnecting i love you,” he tweeted.

MGK previously addressed his estranged relationship with his mother on his 2019 song “Burning Memories.”
“Yeah, this one’s for the mama that I never knew / I took acid just to burn all of my memories of you / I guess now I really wanna know the truth / How’d you leave your only child at nine for another dude?” he raps. “All the years that you ignore me left me sleepless in the bed / I hope daddy got some kids because your only son is dead.”
MGK, born Colson Baker, was raised by his father, who died in July 2020.
Fans shared supportive messages in the comments. “Omg! This is major. Congrats for reconnecting,” wrote one supporter, while another remarked over the surprise reunion. “Omg I can’t believe you are actually with her. If you are happy I’m happy for you.”
