It may have taken a few decades, but it looks like Too Short has put his player ways behind him and has become a family man. The rapper has reportedly become a father for the first time at 53 years old.
Sources tell TMZ Too Short welcomed a baby girl with his off-and-on girlfriend, Sue Ivey. The little girl’s name is Yanni Shaw and is his first child.
But here’s the thing: Too Short has kept Baby Yanni a secret for a while. TMZ reports Sue gave birth to the baby girl back in December.
Too Short is about to officially introduce his daughter to his fans, though. The proud father is currently shooting a documentary with Ray J and his manager, David Weintraub, about raising their daughters in Hollywood.
Too Short has built an entire career out of his pimpin’ lifestyle, his last album even being titled The Pimp Tape. So, fans were a little stunned to learn that he was just now having his first kid, a daughter, no less.
Too Short been rapping about sex since the 80s & he never had any kids? I am so shocked! https://t.co/TwwwCuVdLj

Many congratulations to the rapper. We’ll all have to see how (or if) fatherhood affects his future music.
