Rapper Future and Joie Chavis celebrated their son Hendrix’s birthday this week. On Tuesday, Joie took to Instagram to share photos from her son’s Spider-Man themed party.
She captioned, “I cant believe my baby is 3 already! Happy birthday Hendrix! We love you!”
Hendrix Wilburn was born to Future and Joie on December 14th, 2018. After “33 hours of labor”, Joie had a successful VBAC(vaginal birth after cesarean). The mom of two shares on her Instagram stories that Future “kept me laughing the whole time” during labor and delivery.
Future reportedly has eight children with eight different women, one of whom is singer Ciara. The pair dated and got engaged in October 2013, and their son, Future Zahir Wilburn, was born on May 19, 2014. However, the ‘Goodies’ singer called off their engagement three months after the birth of their son.
Despite having eight kids, Future has said in a past interview that he would like to have more. “God bless me (laughing), I gotta have more kids. Me and my boys are like the best of friends. I just want one princess. I enjoy my kids, I’m building a legacy. You have to understand that when you have girls, they give away your last name. 50 or 60 years from now, you’re going to speak of my legacy. This is what I work for. My oldest son is 16, I had him when I was 17. He understands, you have to make your own way. You still have to make all A’s and B’s in school. I didn’t go to school, but I still want you to go to school. I don’t want you to be in the streets. You don’t have to, you have everything you want. I build this up, you gotta be prepared for it.”
As for not always being able to see the kids that he does have, Future has said, “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.”
