In January 2022, former adult film star Lana Rhoades gave birth to a baby, who has been the subject of nasty memes ever since her pregnancy announcement.
The 25-year-old announced that she was expecting in 2021, sharing a photo of the sonogram on Instagram – but she never revealed who the baby’s father is.
She then revealed that she had given birth in January, posting a photo of her self with the newborn on her Story. Lana, who is now a YouTuber, also revealed his name, Milo, and said “Mom life is the best life”.
She hasn’t shared any more updates about the baby since then, but Milo continues to be a viral internet meme. Here’s why…
LANA RHOADES’ BABY DADDY IS A MYSTERY
The baby Milo memes all revolve around the fact that Lana never revealed who his father is.
When she posted her pregnancy announcement, the 25-year-old had recently split from influencer Mike Majlak, who she dated for around a year.
However, he revealed on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast that he’s not the father, saying: “Roughly a few months ago, me and the absolutely stunning, sweet, beautiful, great, pregnant [Lana] split up.”
“During that time, I started to see other people. She also started to see someone specifically. We remained friends, we continued talking. The result of her interactions with said new person resulted in a bun in the oven.”
She also revealed on her podcast 3 GIRLS 1 KITCHEN in June 2021 that she once went on a date with NBA star Kevin Durant – but that’s as far as it went and they never officially dated.
NASTY BABY MILO MEMES GO VIRAL
Lana is a famous ex-adult film star who has been with a lot of different men, so the baby memes see people nastily joking that anybody could be Milo’s father.
“Due to her past history of adult entertainment… a viral discussion about her pregnancy and baby resulted in many memes referencing her throughout 2021 and 2022,” Know Your Meme says.
For example, one meme is a photo from the book Where’s Wally? with the caption: “Lana Rhoades’s kid looking for his real father.”
Another says “Lana Rhoades kid when it’s career day at school” alongside a video of a man staring out of the window.
Memes about who the baby’s father is spread on Twitter throughout her pregnancy and have gone even more viral since baby Milo was born in January 2022.
LANA ADDRESSES THE VIRAL MEMES
Speaking on a podcast in June 2021, Lana addressed the horrible memes that went viral following her pregnancy announcement.
“I don’t know if you have seen but people are making memes and TikTok’s saying two things,” the influencer said.
“One, that my child is going to be bullied in school and two they’re making TikTok’s about my delivery of my child and children going down water slides.”
“Those are majority of the comments on my Instagram and TikTok and Twitter, just saying stuff like that and also people are saying things like ‘I feel bad for the kid because mom did p***’,” she continued.
Then, she shut down the memes, saying: “I have one thing to say to that. I feel bad for you, you clearly had a terrible mom who raised a son who talks like that to women.”
