BowWow reveals a shocking family secret

Rapper BowWow has revealed a very personal secret. 

The 24-year-old star decided that it was the right time to explain to the world that he is a father to a little girl that he named only as "Shai Shai". Writing to fans on his official website, BowWow divulged:

"For the past three years [I've] been battling life. I felt as if I had no purpose to live (Thinking selfishly) until God gave me the illest gift of my life ... nothing amounts to my lil girl."

He added that the only reason he kept the information private was because he was concerned at how people would react:

"I was nervous on how yall would look at me. 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, it's like it made me into a man overnight."

He hasn't named the mother of his daughter, nor revealed his daughter's age but the full admission can be read over at Watch a recent interview with the rapper here:
