VIDEO: Tom Hanks' Son Chet Hanks Confirms He's a Dad

Chet Hanks, the 26-year-old son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, has revealed that he is a father.

The rapper confirmed he has a daughter in an Instagram video to let fans know about the news before the media was able to reveal it.

“I want to share something today because it’s about to be shared anyway in the press, which is the fact that I have a daughter,” Chet said. “I do have a daughter, she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me, she’s the reason why I turned my life around and got sober. I’ve been sober for over a year and a half from everything.”

Chet said he has not posted about his daughter to let her have her privacy.

“She is sacred to me. She’s not something to be posted,” he said. “She’s something that I love, that’s changed my life but the fact is she’s about to be shared with everybody so I wanted you to hear it from me. Because I’m a real person. It hasn’t been easy making all my mistakes in public but I’m figuring it out. I’m doing the best that I can.”
