The Conversation Café is dedicating time to celebrate those fathers who are involved in the lives of their children or making a difference in their communities. This June, we celebrate Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges who is featured along with his daughter Karma in People this month. We know there are a lot of celebrity fathers, who are often seen with their children, but Ludacris’ close relationship with his 11-year-old daughter, Karma, is being commended by People. The 35-year-old rapper and his daughter have a tight bond and are open about a lot of things, including things he’s not ready to deal with–like boys. The article highlighted other celebrity men and their joys and struggles of raising young children especially girls.
Ludacris was clearly stoked about it, and posted a picture on Twitter: People Mag Father’s Day with me & @itskarmasworld hit stands June 17th! shouts to all the REAL FATHERS!
While recently promoting Fast & Furious 6 on Ellen, Ludacris shared about the freak-out he had after Karma told him she thought a boy in her school was, “cool,”:
Ellen: “You must be such an overprotective dad.”
Ludacris: “It’s bad because I’m extremely protective, and she just told me that she thought a boy at school was ‘cool.’ I said, ‘Well, what makes him cool?’ She said, ‘You know, he’s nice.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh God…I need his address, name, social security number, everything. Yeah, very overprotective.”
Ludacris’ overprotectiveness has paid off because it seems that Karma is an intelligent young lady who has even started her own educational website, Karma’s World. Glasses raised (clink clink) to Ludacris for doing such a fabulous job with your daughter.
