The two had their daughter, Bluesy Bell, back in April 2022. To announce the pregnancy, Darren wrote on Instagram, "We’ve been making music for years.⁣ But this time we made a BEAT.⁣ The ultimate collab droppin Spring 2022."

This is relevant because yesterday, Darren posted on Instagram, "M & D just delivered their follow-up single. ⭐️ Brother László Criss ⭐️ 6/3/24 🎶 Out now. 🎶"

"… and yes his first name is Brother 💛" he concluded.
