Kanye West’s rumored girlfriend Julia Fox celebrates her son Valentino’s first birthday this January. However, her feud with her ex-husband might dampen the celebrations.
“Uncut Gems” actress Julia Fox is allegedly dating rapper Kanye West. She confirmed they went on their second date in a write-up for Interview Magazine, which she titled “Date Night.”
Before Fox was going on extravagant dates that involved seeing plays, photoshoots in restaurants and playing dress-up with West, she was married to pilot Peter Artemiev.

The former couple met through a mutual connection, Zac Bahaj, and within two months were married in 2018. At the time, Fox was smitten with Artemiev; she admitted she manifested him, and he checked all of the boxes she was looking for in a partner.
Artemiev and Fox celebrated their first wedding anniversary in 2019. However, they filed for divorce two years later, but not before they welcomed their son, Valentino.
The actress announced Valentino’s birth with a gorgeous photo showing her baby bump. After discovering that Valentino needed to be delivered urgently because of blood pressure issues, her sister took the picture. In the caption, she explained:
“Right after the shoot I went to the hospital and had my precious baby boy. My forever valentine, Valentino. Born on January 17th, 2021. The best day of my life.”
Following the birth of her son, Fox gushed that welcoming a child was the greatest thing to happen to her, and she wished she had done it sooner. She explained her baby helped her feel more comfortable being herself too.

Although Fox found comfort and is loving motherhood, one part of parenthood she seems not to be enjoying is figuring out co-parenting with her estranged ex-husband.
During the 2021 Christmas holidays, the “No Sudden Move” actress wrote a rant about her son’s “dead beat dad” in since expired Instagram stories, in which she called him out for his partying and drinking lifestyle.
Although Fox wrote a few harsh critics of her ex, she explained that she does not want her son to be hurt because he feels his father was absent or loved partying more than him.
Later, Artiemiev told Page Six that Fox’s “utterly false statements” hurt him. Furthermore, he said she was struggling with the situation, but he opted not to comment further out of respect for her and their child.
