Former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars Benzino and his fiancée, Althea Heart, finally released the first full-body photos of their newborn son, Zino Jr. The couple, who welcomed the baby boy Nov. 10, have kept relatively quiet about Zino Jr. and, up until Saturday, only posted photos of his hands.
In a photo Benzino shared Nov. 21, the baby is seen swaddled in a blanket. “HEEERRRRREEEEESSSSSSS ZINO ANTONIO SCOTT!!,” the producer captioned the photo.

Althea also shared a video of her talking to her son, writing, “#BabyZino #Zino IM HERE!!”
According to TMZ, Benzino and Althea, who will star on the upcoming Season 4 of WE tv's "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," delayed posting their son's pictures online because they were trying to sell the photos to a tabloid for $20,000.
However, Benzino took to Twitter this week to deny the report, writing, “Rumors, Rumors, Rumors, damn, is it really that serious? Y’all think these blogs are credible when they repost this BS?"
He continued, "Me and @luvheraltheaheart are very much together and we will show our baby when we feel the time is right, wtf can 15 20 racks do? He is our precious gift from God and will show him when WE think the time is right, damn he’s only 7 days old, can we enjoy him first? Thank you for all the Love and Congratulations, we really appreciated it!!”
