Over the weekend, Fabolous shared the first real photo of his newborn son, Jonas Jackson, with the world. In the image, Jonas rests comfortably on his daddy’s chest as his big brother, Johan Jackson, wraps his arm around him. Beneath the photo, Fab left a touching message about fatherhood. His message reads:
I come from a generation & environment where Fathers weren’t very present in the lives of children for whatever reason. Some being drugs, prison, relationship issues, lack of finance & just plain immaturity, but the job/role of Daddy is just as important as a Mom. Men need to understand that. I know & believe that bcuz I come from a single parent home. And even tho the mothers & sometimes grandparents do they best to provide & raise children a lot of times something’s missing. And as a child we find something or someone else to be that Father Figure. Could be the streets, hip hop, sports coach, teacher, hustlers, & even vices we pick up that teach, instill, & mold us. Fathers are supposed to be there for that & help lead the way. Are Fathers perfect, NO. But no one is & no responsibility requires you to be perfect. With that said I love being a part of my kids life & see no other way. I don’t like to advertise my personal life much for the sake of trying to keep something for US, but I do hope the glimpse men get to see of me being a father inspires & motivates. To all Father’s & those soon to be, #HappyFathersDay
