Jay-Z’s got 99 problems, but the baby ain’t one! The rap star even said he’ll definitely be changing diapers!
Jay-Z, 41, opened up about his baby-to-be with Beyonce, 30, in a recent interview with GQ. And the usually private rapper revealed the reason he waited to have kids: So he could spend more bonding time with the little Bey-Z!
“Providing — that’s not love,” he explained. “Being there — that’s more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They’re crying out for attention; they’re hurting for love. I’m not being judgmental — I’m just making an observation. They’re crying out for the love that maybe they didn’t get at home, and they got everything. All the material things that they need and want. So we know that’s not the key.”
But he wanted to wait until he could be present in the tot’s life, even if it meant leaving rap for a while. Most important: He’ll be there “one hundred percent” for diaper-changing!
Jay-Z’s dad left when he was 11-years-old, and he vows to never abandon his child. “My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar,” the rapper explained. “He was my superhero.”
But now he’s totally prepared for the little one on the way — and he and Beyonce couldn’t be more excited. “It was actually Bey who wanted to [announce] it,” he revealed. “You want to be in control of your life.”
Aww! Jay-Z’s going to be the best pop! We’re glad he waited to have kids until he was ready. What do YOU think?
