Bow Wow’s Name Left Off of Daughter’s Birth Certificate

July 11, 2011  |  

Celebrity baby mother and father drama is back and in full effect ya’ll.

Just last week, rapper Bow Wow came forward to reveal to his fans that the rumors and his mom’s tweets are true: he has a nearly three-month-old daughter with video model Joie Chavis. While there was speculation for a while that he and Chavis had a child, the rapper finally broke the news on his website, BowWow Today, gushing about daughter Shai Moss and explaining why he kept her under wraps:

My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night. Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didnt.

But more details are coming to light about the birth of Shai, including the fact that Chavis left Bow Wow’s name off of the child’s birth certificate because she was upset about his late arrival to the hospital. According to TMZ, Chavis says that Bow Wow didn’t appear at the hospital until six days after her birth (done by emergency C-section by the way) when he came to take the two home. In what seemed to be an act done out of anger, Chavis left Bow Wow’s name off of the birth certificate. She told TMZ that she’s willing to move forward and have his name put on the certificate, since he’s shown himself to be 100 percent committed to his daughter. However, that’s going to be a bit more difficult than she thinks. Guess these two will have to meet up in court and let a judge fix this mess.
