It all began when rapper Consequence’s seven-year-old son, Caiden posted a picture with him and North captioned "Boo'd Up" which is slang for being in a relationship with someone.

The adorable picture managed to rack up over 35,000 likes from his 56,000 followers.

To add to the fire, he (or in this case, whoever is managing his account) went on to post a picture of him buying a necklace from a jewellery store. 

"She’s gonna LoVe It😘😘😘 Wrap that up sir, I’ll take it 💸💸💸" it was captioned.

"Isn’t that the case for most things like when is a child old enough to date, wear makeup, pierce ears or spend the night out - these are just a smattering of the light side of parenting questions. My daughter Lula, at six, wants to marry her dad and has no idea of the concept of what being in love is all about, and for now, let’s keep it at that," she said.
