Having four daughters has definitely changed Mike Epps’ perspective. The ‘Uncle Buck’ star tells PEOPLE exclusively that his girls – Bria, Madison, Moriah, and Makayla – make him appreciate the women in his life that much more.


“Being a man and really a fan of hip hop, I grew up in the era where there were parts of hip hop that was degrading towards women,” he shares. “When I started having daughters, I was like, ‘Well I’ve got to change my music menu.’ When you have girls, you see your mother, you see your grandmother, and you see your auntie. All my daughters look like my great ones, my loved ones, my older one, my influences.”

Although he is proud to father four daughters, Mike admits that it would be nice to have a man child. “I wish I had a son,” he reveals. “My mother had eight sons and one girl. My mother cried every day. A woman can’t control a little boy that much. You think they can, but it’s like dealing with a little man.” Epps goes on to say, “I think the gene pool switched up. I had all the girls that she wanted!”

Catch Mike Epps every week in the ABC series ‘Uncle Buck.’ The first episode airs on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, at 9/8c.
