DEITRICK HADDON TALKS BECOMING A DAD FOR THE SECOND TIME AND MORE
Deitrick Haddon is on the moon and not allowing gravity to bring him down. The star tells Oxygen fans that becoming a father for the second time is life-changing.
“I have children,” exclaims the star. “I’m a father of two, and the family is growing fast. It’s amazing how babies just bring so much joy and so much peace and we can see it clearly now. It’s clear that Dominique and I were made for each other, and made to create these children.”
The singer comments on the labor and delivery experience saying, “It was amazing. I was the first person that [Denver] saw when she first came out of the dock. I was with her the whole way! Dominique had a C-section, and she was strong til the last day. She can HAVE babies! It happened really fast, and when Denver came out…she came out screaming! I knew that’s my girl because she’s got those strong lungs! She was hollering!”
So how’s big sister Destin handling sisterhood? “Destin is having a hard time adjusting because she’s been spoiled,” explains Haddon. “She’s been the only one for a year and a half, and Denver is the little baby coming in on her territory. She’s trying to process it. Dominique is doing a fantastic job, she’s bringing Destin in to help her, she holds her. She’s understanding that Denver is a part of the family and not one of her dolls that she can toss around. Destin is rough! So you have to make sure she’s handling the baby with care. If we give it maybe a month, she will be well-adjusted to the new routine.”
Although grateful for the opportunity to mold his daughter’s lives, Haddon is hoping to be blessed with a son. “I need a son,” declares the reality star. “I need a gentleman to balance this thing out. I’m hoping for a son. We’re gonna take a break, maybe four or five years, and if I don’t get a son next time I’m gonna stop! Too many girls!”
Deitrick and wife Dominique welcomed their second child into the world on January 23, 2014. Denver Monroe was born a healthy eight pounds and four ounces in Los Angeles, California.
