It was a daddy-daughter date night at the Oscars for Sean “Diddy” Combs and his daughter Chance, 15. Diddy was ever the doting dad as he posed with his oldest daughter on the red carpet.
While speaking to ET’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner, Diddy explained that it was a special night for him and his daughter, who is an aspiring actress.
He said, “First of all, the biggest thing that’s going on tonight, me bringing my daughter to this, because she’s an [aspiring] actress and we get to have a date, and I’m just so excited and I’m just so stunned,” the proud dad shared. “I’m at a loss of words, so, I’m blessed to be here. I’m presenting tonight, and we’re having a good time.”
“I’m dealing with daddy emotions,” he added.
Diddy is also shared that he is hoping to see a win for the entire cast of King Richard. “I saw the King Richard movie, and I really loved that ’cause I also played tennis myself, and it was really inspiring.”
Adding, “Will and Beyoncé, I’m rooting for everybody, really, but I would love to see my friends win. The place is gonna go crazy as it should,” he said of what he predicts will happen if Smith takes home a statuette. “He’s given so much to the art and the craft and the people, and even to his kids, he deserves it all. I’ve seen the movie and I know that he was definitely best actor of the year. I’ma tell you right, it’s gonna be a problem if they don’t give Will, the best actor of the year, I’ma tell you.”
Sean Combs is the proud father of six kids and an absolute Girl Dad. The celebrity father recently penned a sweet message to Chance in honor of her fifteenth birthday on July 21, 2021.
“Happy Birthday to my amazing, beautiful, gorgeous, smart, funny, kind, intelligent, hardworking, adventurous, compassionate, loving, talented, sweetheart daughter @myfancychance,” Diddy exclaimed online. “I love you so much! So proud of you each and every day! Thank God for you!”
