Wale is thrilled to be a father. The rapper took to Instagram to dote on his daughter shortly after her birth.


“I keep the most important things in my life so far away from people because I’m sensitive,” he wrote. “I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child… For that reason I kept this very private as I prayed every day to receive this blessing.”

The rapper further explained, “I named my album SHiNE when I knew my babygirl was on the way …I want to be a better man than I ever been. I’m so flawed I’m so imperfect and the world knows it… I just want to honestly be the best version of myself I can be.. My focus is renewed I’m infinitely in love with my princess.”
