Congratulations are in order for hip hop legend, Too Short. According to multiple online reports, the rapper just welcomed his first child - a daughter - into the world.

The Oakland Cali native waited for a long time before becoming a dad. He's 53 years old and this is his first child! 

Too Short finally becoming a father comes as a bit of a surprise since the rapper always maintained that he was not interested in having children. In fact, during a recent interview with Vlad TV, Too Short claimed that he didn't have any children because he "never wanted to pay child support". 

So far there's no word yet on who the mother of his child is but his daughter is beautiful!

And here's the interview:

Too Short, real name Todd Anthony Shaw, is a rapper, record producer, and actor. He is best known for his hit songs, such as "The Ghetto" and "Blow the Whistle".

Too Short is credited as being one of the pioneer rappers of West Coast hip hop.

He first began recording in 1985, becoming one of Oakland's better known underground emcees, before he signed a deal with Jive Records in 1987, releasing his mainstream debut album Born to Mack. He experienced his first widespread success with his 1989 follow-up album Life Is...Too Short, and remained one of the most popular rappers into the 1990s. His rap lyrics are primarily about pimping, drug use, surviving, and promiscuity.
