Their love story began when Carmelo’s friend DJ Clue, who used to VJ for MTV, was working with Lala on a show called ‘MTV’s Beach House.’ Carmelo thought Lala was attractive and inquired about Ms. Vasquez to his friend. It wasn’t until the two were clubbing in the same nightclub when he went up to Lala and introduced himself. The two exchanged info but remained just friends.

A year later the couple found out they were expecting a baby boy. Kiyan Carmelo Anthony was born March 7, 2007. The couple was over-joyed and ecstatic as Kiyan completed their life.
