The music mogul is accepting the challenges of his unexpected situation.
Diddy has entered a new chapter in his life as he takes on the whole lot of parenting responsibilities that he used to split with the late Kim Porter. Since the model's untimely death, Diddy has vowed to love and support his children with even greater fervor. He gave his following a glimpse of his day-to-day life through a series of clips.
The father of four (plus one) spoke about the evolution of his role as a father in videos he uploaded to social media. In the first clip, the seemingly tired entertainer offered gratitude.
“Today the journey begins. Thank you for all your prayers and support. I am now part of the 6 a.m crew. This is mommy/daddy, daddy/mommy checking in.” He continued, “Yeah, so this daddy/mommy thing … it’s beautiful. I love it. You just have to get up early in the morning, like real early. Like early.”

Diddy expressed his awareness of the commonality of his circumstances. He acknowledged single parents, both mothers and fathers, who have welcomed the multiplicity of duties entailed by single parenthood.
“When you hear me say ‘daddy/mommy,’ all my single mothers, they know what that is. Even some single fathers. Gotta step up and play both roles. The mothers who do it all the time, shout out.”
He also mentioned Porter as his source of inspiration by writing, “New life NEW RESPONSIBILITIES. KIM I GOT THIS. Like you taught me!”
