Naomi Osaka is in the tennis bubble in New York, so she can’t be with her boyfriend YBN Cordae to celebrate his 23th birthday. The tennis star took to Instagram to share her feelings and how much she appreciates having the rapper in her life.
I always feel so lucky to be in your life and to be continuously learning from you. I‘m so grateful that I can talk to you about anything and ask for advice (cause you know I need all the help I can get lol). I love that you lay down and wait for me to go to sleep before you go record. Etc because the list goes on forever… I hope you’re having the best birthday, I’m sad I can’t be there but I’ll make it up to you 😖 happy 23rd, I love you Cordae <3.
Even though she’s not with her loved one on this important date, the 22-year-old Osaka is using her time at work to the fullest, as today she fought past Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit to advance to the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open.
Naomi and Cordae became Instagram official in September last year, when they kissed and hugged with LA’s Hollywood sign in the background. They have probably been dating for over a year.
