Sean “Diddy” Combs’ life has undergone drastic changes following the sudden death of Kim Porter. Sadly, co-parenting is no longer an option for the Bad Boy CEO as he’s now a single parent to his three children with the former model. On Monday, December 3, Diddy took to Twitter with a video describing his first day taking his 11-year-old twin daughters, D’Lila Star and Jessie James Combs, to school since their mother passed.
Presumably, this was previously a routine task for Kim Porter, but now Diddy is stepping up to the plate to get the job done. In the video, Diddy reflected on his new reality detailing his morning with his daughters. Diddy also gave fans a glimpse of what his life will be like going forward.
“Today the journey begins, thank y’all for all your support. I’m not a part of the 6 a.m. crew,” Diddy said. “This is mommy/daddy, daddy/mommy checking in. This daddy-mommy thing is beautiful. Love it. You just have to get up early in the morning. Like real early. Real early. You don’t hear me say daddy-mommy. All my single mothers, they know what that is. Even some single fathers, gotta step up and play both roles—the mothers do it all the time.”
With Kim Porter gone, the father of six has big shoes to fill but it looks like he’s definitely up for the job. In the caption for the video, Diddy even credited Kim Porter for preparing him for his moment.
“New day. New Life new RESPONSIBILITIES,” Diddy wrote in the post. “KIM I GOT THIS. Just like you taught me.”
