Following the death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, celebrity dads are showing their undying love for their kids.
American rapper TI is no stranger to this as he even wrote a heartfelt apology to his kids after learning of the superstar’s demise.
In a series of Instagram messages, the father and husband declared his dedication to his daughters and assured them no words in the dictionary could ever describe the depth of his affection.
He termed his angels as opinionated, strong and independent saying their individual uniqueness made him proud to be their father.
“I love you girls more than my vocabulary will allow me to express. You have grown so much right before my very eyes and blossomed into strong, brilliantly opinionated, independent young women. I am so proud of you both and I love you to no end, more than you will ever know,” the rapper penned.
The emotional dad reminded his fans to hold onto their loved ones and love them unapologetically especially during this difficult time.
Following a misunderstanding over violating his daughter’s privacy, the celebrity asked his baby girls to forgive his imperfections as a parent.
He said despite his shortcomings, he is willing to catch his daughters when they fall and he loves them more than they could imagine.
“Please forgive me for any and all imperfections that cause misunderstandings between us.... Charge my mind, not my heart. You see life may throw us curveballs and deal us some pretty bad hands at times. But rest assured, you will never find yourself in a place too high or low for me to be there to catch you when you fall,” TI added.
In 2019, while talking about his experience as a father, the rapper disclosed he makes his daughter visit the gynaecologist each year to determine if she had not been deflowered.
The dad added that every year during his girl’s birthday, he reminds the teenager the two are scheduled for a doctor’s visit during the day.
The celebrity received a lot of flak from his fans and his daughter Deyjah Harris seemed to agree with his critics.
He told Ladies Like Us podcast he always wanted to ensure his little girl’s hymen had not been tampered with.
The father of six then recanted his sentiments later claiming he had exaggerated his behaviour just a little.
Apparently, the visits stopped when Deyjah was around 16. She is now 18 years old.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that as many around the world continue to mourn the loss of Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, the term, girl dad became the number 1 trending topic on Twitter.
This followed a revelation by ESPN's sports presenter, Elle Duncan while sharing a memory of Bryant on how much he loved being a father of girls.
