I realized being a father is the greatest job I have ever had and the greatest job I will ever have.

Being busy for me really helps in parental duties.

To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of 'being better' will never steer you wrong.

I've realized that the most important thing that I could do with my daughter is lead our life with love. Not success, not fame, not anything else but, 'I'm always here for you. I love you.’


Loving, kind, tenacious and tough (like your mama) and my greatest joy is being your daddy. I always got you.

There’s gonna come a time, years from now when jumping in my arms is the last thing she wants to do and ain’t gonna be cool anymore — so I’ll always take these moments while I can.

I love filling up the baby tub and I get Jasmine's toys, making everything right. And then I say my thing, 'All right, Daddy's ready!'

I said, ‘Do me a favor: I want you to tell me what is the thing that you love most about our relationship.’ And she’s like, ‘Oh, come on.’.. And she said, ‘Well, that I trust you.’

Can’t guarantee I’ll love and protect all my daughters for the rest of their lives, but I can guarantee I will for the rest of mine.


Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear.
