DaBaby is gunning for daddy of the year with these sweet moments with his adorable daughter.
DaBaby posted several photos this week while waiting in an airport with his young daughter, one of which showed her adorably perched on his shoulders. The caption read, “I know the devil wondering how my heart stay pure through the flaw sh*t.” While DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, has made a career of discussing his street cred and maintaining his hard persona, many of his recent actions suggest he has a kind and generous soft side. His public proud-daddy moments are only the latest in a string of stories that show there is a lot more to the Kirk rapper than meets the eye.
Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, DaBaby is best known for his single “Suge,” and has had impressive commercial success from the sales of his debut album, Baby on Baby. His second album, Kirk, was released in September and has also seen chart-topping success. The rapper has wasted no time flaunting his cash on social media or living a lavish lifestyle by making extravagant purchases and booking private jets. He has, however, also gained a reputation for spontaneously giving cash out to strangers and taking the time to connect with a fan in a way a lot of rappers avoid.
DaBaby recently spent $300 to buy out the entire supply of a little boy selling cookies on the street. He was also seen in a viral video gifting $1000 to a young homeless mother who waited hours to see him, as well as giving a fan an autographed pair of his shoes. While these acts of kindness are respectable in any celebrity, it is possible that DaBaby is attempting to correct his karma after an incident that left a 19-year-old man dead in North Carolina. DaBaby was involved in a shooting that resulted in the young man’s death, and pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon, but claimed he acted in self-defense.
