10-year-old Reginae Carter, the daughter of rapper Lil Wayne and reality star Antonia “Toya Carter, recently sat down with Sister2Sister magazine to talk about her famous father among topics of school and music. Want to know how life is for this daddy’s little girl? Read on…
On having fun with dad
Reginae says that Lil Wayne is a “very good dad” whom she sees in the summer every other week and whenever she is on break from school. Reginae admits to having a lot of “fun” whenever she is on the road with her dad. Out of all the places that she and her dad have traveled to, she likes Minnesota the best because “it has the biggest mall”. Though her dad “spoils” her with gifts-one of Reginae’s favorite gifts is a necklace from Amsterdam-, Reginae admits that time spent with her dad isn’t all fun. There is always that mundane task of doing math homework! Luckily for Reginae, Lil Wayne helps her with her math projects.
“He’ll help me with my projects. And either he helps me when I call him on the phone, or it’s my tutor.”
So has Lil Wayne ever had to discipline his daughter?
“No. He just tells me for right and wrong. He don’t holler at me or nothing; he just tells me for right and wrong.”
Music clearly runs in this young star’s blood, but Reginae Carter is not at all sure that she would like to work in the music industry when she “grows up”.
“I want to be a lot of things. I want to be a singer, a pediatrician–’cause I like to work with babies.”
At the moment, Reginae is a part of a singing group called the OMG girls, of which she is a rapper.
On treating Kids with respect:
Reginae admits that some kids treat her differently because Lil Wayne is her dad. So how does this young celebrity’s kid know how to pick out her real friends from the fake ones?
“It’s when they don’t–like, when I first come [and] they find out that my daddy is who he is, and now they want to be my friend.”
As for kids who want to be friends with her because of her dad, Reginae says that she treats them ” real good, ’cause if they treat me with respect then I will treat them with respect.”
