Rapper Bow Wow (real name Shad Gregory Moss) recently became the father of a baby girl named Shai Moss (born June 2011), who he claims basically saved his life since he had been drifting for the past three years. Bow Wowâ€™s life gained a whole new meaning – he has a baby of his own, and she is his main focus.
Joie Chavis, a former video vixen, is the mother of the child. The 24 year-old rapper finally realized he had to grow up, be a better man and offer his baby the best life possible away from the cameras. Do not expect Bow Wow to be showing off his baby girl.
Bow Wow wrote on his website, â€œFor the past 3 years i been batteling life. Even thought about taking my own. I felt like as a kid i did everything and saw everything too fast which spoiled my adult years. I felt as if i had no purpose to live(Thinking selfishly) until god gave me the illest gift of my life.â€
â€œMy 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. Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didnt. Want her to be able to cheerlead with her lil friends with out some asshole sticking his camera all in my lil girl face. I know how fame is. I missed out on so much that i now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in your life. Yes! I change diapers.â€
â€œI 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.â€
â€œThe bs that comes with having a baby momma is expected. So i neva trip. Jus gotta suck it up keep chin high and try not let her get the best of my feelings by playin them stupid games. Ima stay positive and keep maintaining long as i got yall i cant lose.â€
Of course, there is some drama with the baby mama. Life cannot be perfect. Bow Wow claims to fly for 5 hours to be able to see his little girl, but itâ€™s all worth it. Shay is growing fast, and daddy is proud of his baby.
Congratulations daddy Bow Wow!
