Watch the video below and prepare for a cuteness overload!
Chance loves talking about his little girl. On his recent cover story for Complex, he opened up about becoming a young father. “I think most people go into denial,” he said of having a baby at a young age. “I’m not shy in saying it, I didn’t expect to become a father when I was 22 and it had a huge impact on what I was doing — I was touring a lot and I was trying to figure out where I was gonna go in the world.”
Though he admitted that adjusting to fatherhood wasn’t always easy, he said it was definitely worth it. “I had never experienced joy like that before,” he said. “Delving into family life is so f–kin’ dope and so separate from any joy that you can receive being creative.”
Chance said that he owes his fathering skills to his own father, Ken Bennett, a politician based in Chicago. “I have the world’s best dad currently,” he said. “Most of the stuff that he’s showed me, you know, his dedication, his time management, his commitment to being truthful, it’s all about what he’s instilled in me. So I want to be able to be a trusted figure beyond a dad. I want to be a good friend and a good example and someone that’s dedicated the amount of time that would achieve or earn that.”
