Happy Birthday, Hendrix Wilburn! The son of rapper Future and Joie Chavis turns two today.
“Happy 2nd birthday to my baby boy Hendrix. I love you so much Pop!” Joie shared on her Instagram
“My son made 2 today. Happy born day Hendrix..I love u forever twin,” Future wrote on his Twitter.
The musician later shared a series of photos of his son in his Instagram stories. “Don’t play with him. Big 2,” he captioned one of the snaps.
Future and Joie briefly dated before welcoming their son in 2018.
“Joie thank u for being an incredible mom…u holding it down! Real one, stay solid HAPPY MOTHERS DAY,” Future wrote in a Mother’s Day tweet earlier this year.
It’s a good thing that Joie is ‘holding it down’ as Future doesn’t get to see his kids often. In a past interview in 2017, the celebrity dad shared his perspective on balancing his career with fatherhood.
“You gotta sacrifice so much, even the times with your kids,” he explained. “You have to just do music and you’re becoming this entertainer and so many people require so much of your time for different things, different obligations you have to make money, or just different obligations you have as a person in whatever the situation may be. You gotta leave town and miss out on certain things, that you feel like you should be there. Like, your dad should be a part of this moment.”
He continued, ” I gotta be like, ‘Damn, man, your daddy really a superstar and entertainer.’ My kids gotta understand, they gotta make a sacrifice, having a superstar dad. My career choice is my career choice. Just stepping out of that zone, to be able to be a provider. I understand my position as a provider and my role as a dad also…Just being able to be comfortable with it. Everybody wanna be a super dad and the best dad ever but sometimes, I’m just realizing that I’m not perfect.”
Future reportedly has eight kids but only acknowledges six children. Chavis, who is a professional dancer, also has a daughter with rapper Bow Wow.
