Bow Wow Reveals He Has A Daughter

Bow Wow is opening up for the first time about being a father.

“I waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me. Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do. I wanted to be 1st n let yall know the real,” the 24-year-old rapper and actor wrote on his website.

“My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night,” Bow Wow shared, adding that he didn’t want to post pictures of his daughter because of the paparazzi.

“I want her to live with me so bad. Jus us 2. Thats my dream man but fellas yall know how it go. Baby gotta stay with they momma and all dat bull. I hate that! So i have to fly 5 hrs away to see her,” he revealed. “I find myself going into my i phone book jus lookn at pix of her. Sometimes i tear up cuz i just cant believe it brotha be emotional. All in all im good.”

    First the Casey Anthony headline and now this? Wow, what a week a Hollywood! I wonder what his little girl looks like

  • sourpatch575

    Can this guy and everybody else in Hollywood not keep IT in their pants!
    For pete’s sake he’s only 24!
    I wonder how old the child is..?

  • ck_always

    Of course he does, look at him. And he didn’t tell anyone because he doesn’t do sh#t with the kid, again ..look at him. He makes easy money, so he can pay for someone else to deal with it. Zzzzzz

    Birth control, why is no one using it? Congrats to Bow Wow.

  • leesa

    It makes my eyes bleed to read this. My God, is he allergic to commas and apostrophes?

  • JC

    Who gives a fawk.

  • Wes

    He must have some project coming out soon for him to reveal this now. But I do think it’s really cute that he’s a father!

  • Brandon

    He thinks its bull that the baby stays with the mother? And yet he keeps the fact he’s a dad a secret like it’s something to be ashamed of. Glad to see his brains functioning at a normal level (sarcasm).

  • anybody?anybody?

    Like most here, I’m more shocked at the vocabulary coming from a 24-year-old adult than the fact that he has a kid. Did he have testicular cancer or something for us to be surprised that he’s able to produce kids? Although I grudgingly admire him for the few brain cells he was able to rub together that told him to keep the little girl from the paparazzi…

  • danielle

    “Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do. ”

    They do?

  • JC

    What did you expect, a Rhodes scholar? He’s a grown man calling himself Bow Wow. At least he dropped the Lil’. Bow Wow sounds so much more grown up.

  • janiece

    @leesa: I might have been able to look past the missing commas and apostrophes IF….and that’s a big if…. his words were spelled correctly….wtf!

    It’s not a matter of keeping it in their pants or Hollywood. Many young people outside of Hollywood have multiple children by the age of 24. To think they’re not going to have s*ex is wishful thinking, but they are naive to leave it to the female to take care of birth control. Males and Females need to be responsible for their bodies, don’t assume that someone else is taking care of the problem of birth control or is ‘clean’ just because they look clean.
    This was obviously not a planned birth for Bow Wow. He should have been smart enough to use protection himself, not only to prevent unwanted births, but also for protection against diseases. Of course, he claims to love the child now, but I’m sure he wasn’t happy when he initially found out about the pregnancy. So, he has to fly 5hrs to see her; he should have thought about that when he was giving Mr. Happy free reign.
    He sounds more like a kid than a man. He’s supposed to have been a straight A student; I hope his writing skills were better in class than they are in this letter. It’s not a crime to be able to spell and form a coherent sentence.

  • torrance

    i think the reason my first reaction was ‘whoa’ is because he looks so young, like 15. but he is 24 now so that’s bad to have a kid.
    and i think he talks just fine.
    he is a RAPPER, not a frickin corporate exec or politician.

  • good job

    i knew it i knew hed have a kid but keep it secret he has slept with so many women that it was just impossible for one of them not to have a kid but good on him for keeping it a secret

  • Texas Girl


  • J12003

    Seriously Bow Wow, you make yourself sound like a complete idiot. For the love of god, learn how to spell. Seriously.

  • Paris

    He look like Will Smit

  • Whatever

    Learn how to speak and spell proper ENGLISH you idiot. You sound like an uneducated a-hole and if you think you are all “street” you’re not. Your a complete wannabe in a world that has passed your shorty ass up a LONG time ago. Homie.

  • http://bettyj2u betty

    While everyone is correcting his grammar he’s running all the way to the bank, at least he can afford to support his child.and taking responsibility that’s more than you can say about a lot of men.

  • lol!!!!

    Yes, he’s functionally illiterate and clearly a moron in more ways than one , but, seriously, why would anyone expect more out of an adult who goes by the name Bow Wow.

  • shocking

    that this person has an illegitimate kid, or a handful of them? NOT! It’s to be expected.

  • S28

    This is not new it was reported that he get some video hoe pregnant months ago old news.

  • Butter_Fly



  • GG

    You’re are 24! Learn to speak.

  • Karina


    Hahahah. It’s embarrassing how much this made me LOL.

  • Giuseppe Sallo

    He should hook up with Casey Anthony. Irresponsible fools.

  • Sheigh

    I’m not surprised at all! But he gets one and only, really ?
    His english language hurts my eyes more than burns them !
    Be a rapper is not an excuse!

  • Abbi


    In the words of Chris Rock, “Why is it that black men want credit for thing’s they’re supposed to do? The man says, ‘I take care of my kids’. Well you’re supposed to you dumb motherf****!”

    ps. I’m a black girl, so don’t go saying im racist and chose Chris Rock to compare because I’m racist or anything like some fanatic commenters do lol.

  • Jasmine

    This part made me laugh: “Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do.”
    Sorry, who is “yall”? I haven’t heard anything about this dude since that basketball movie he was in…what, 10 years ago?
    And my goodness, someone get him an english tutor.

  • ****

    Wow, a 24 year old black man with a 10 year old daughter? That’s the first time I’ve ever heard of anything like that…

  • D

    @kat: Loooooool +10000

  • D

    @anybody?anybody?: You’re comment is hilarious lol

  • Jacqueline

    Yes everyone: unfortunately, there are guys like him who exist. Nice ghetto boys who are completely illiterate. I dated one and needless to say, we broke up haha

  • cece

    People usually write how they talk especially if its not a formal letter. I write like that if i’m sending texts to my friends, so it’s really not a big deal ppl!!!!
    He did say that ppl like to make a big deal with everthing thing he does. You guys are proving his point by obsessing over grammer.

  • Jessica

    I wish people would leave the boy alone. So what he is 24 there is a show 16 and pregnant, I don´t see anyone complaining. Plus, at least he goes to visit his child and has enough money to provide for her. And about his grammar, make sure you check your grammar before correcting someone else´s.

  • Lurker

    Well the most shocking thing here is to learn Bow Wow was a straight A student? In the 1st grade?

  • Saddie89

    Just another example of AF-AM women holding the cards on contraception. These men seem to randomly produce kids and remain absent landlords on raising duties of these children. Except for snoop dog I’m not sure any of them have any parenting responsbilities or obligations.
    Kids raising kids – how sad. It all seems so trivialized to generate more for media spin than real family comittments.

  • Sovar

    there’s not a single rapper out there without a kid…

  • J

    Can someone translate this into English for me? I don’t speak “uneducated”. Thanks!

  • sigh

    This guy is not doing african-americans a favor, with his ghetto attitude, reckless baby-making, absentee dad behavior, and illiterate babble.

  • Dani

    @ Sovar who said

    there’s not a single rapper out there without a kid…

    What about Lupe Fiasco? I think he’s childless.

  • windshield replacement cost

    Who cares, seriously.

  • B

    I think tht was the. Right thing 2 do becuz the media tak thing & turn it up side down or mak it into big deal when its not. I think he shuld hide his daughter bcuz if the media find out they will stalk her & her mother no matter how old she is & try 2 mak it seem he’s neglecting her or not claiming her.
