Diddy is opening up about his new role as a single dad following the passing of his ex-girlfriend, actress and model Kim Porter.
The music mogul fathered three children with Porter, including 11-year-old twins Jessie James and D’Lila Star, and 20-year-old Christian.
In a video shared on Twitter, Diddy gets candid about his “new life” and “new responsibilities” as he drives Jessie James and D’Lila to school.
“Today the journey begins,” he says in the video. “I’m now a part of the 6 a.m. crew. This is mommy/daddy, daddy/mommy, checking in.”
A caption on the video reads: “Kim I GOT THIS. Just like you taught me.”
Porter, who died suddenly on Nov. 15 at the age of 47, had allegedly been suffering from flu-like symptoms for a number of weeks. An autopsy did not reveal the cause of death and the result has been deferred pending further coroner investigation.
“This daddy/mommy thing is beautiful,” Diddy continues in the video. “You just have to get up early in the morning… like real early.”
“So we out here… All the single mother’s, y’all know what that is. Even some single father’s, you gotta step up and play both roles. The mother’s do it all the time.”
At Porter’s funeral, Diddy delivered an emotional eulogy about how the late actress had helped him through his depression.
“I was getting older, and I just went through a dark, dark time,” he said, via video obtained by TMZ. “She would come over and… she was just like, ‘Come on, Puff. You gotta get up. You gotta get up out the bed. You gotta get moving. You gotta get up.’”
