Many saw Jermaine Dupri’s dedication to parenthood during Shaniah’s rearing years. The producer reminisced about his reaction to learning that he would be a father for the first time during an interview with Life Of Dad last year.
“I was so scared,” Jermaine told media. “I had this fear that parenthood is a lot different than it actually is. I feared a bunch of things. I feared not being able to take care of my child. I was so nervous that I wasn’t going to be able to be the father that I wanted to be. So when I found out I was going to have a kid I was nervous. I was scared to tell people. It was a bunch of things.”
Although worried at first, Jermaine adjusted to the role of dad just fine. “It happened to me at a later part of my life,” Dupri revealed. “The majority of my friends were having babies when they were teenagers. My kid came when I was a full grown adult.”
The celebrity dad went on to encourage new fathers to “just be as strong as you can possibly be, especially if you have a girl.” Jermaine continued, “You still have to be a father that you have always been [when they grow up and go to college], but you got to understand other things that come along with that package. You got to stay as strong as possible.”
