Rapper Bow Wow has become a first-time father.
The Like You hitmaker, real name Shad Moss, welcomed daughter Shai Moss with his ex-girlfriend, hip-hop video vixen Joie Chavis, in early June (11), according to MediaTakeOut.com.
The 24 year old has yet to publicly talk about becoming a dad after months of keeping the baby news secret, but he has posted a number of messages on his Twitter.com blog in recent weeks, hinting about the newborn.
After appearing to visit little Shai, he wrote, "This is da (sic) worst part Leaving you. Right now u dont (sic) understand but later on u will. Time to go out n (sic) get it (make money) so u can have the best life ever."
Bow Wow's mum, Teresa, has been more open about her first grandchild on her Twitter page, and wrote last week (30Jun11), "Shai is so beautiful. She looks like a baby doll. OMG (oh my god)!!! Y'all already KNO (sic) what I'm going to do...spoil her and shower her with lots of LOVE."
