Coming on-stage to accept his Lyricist of the Year Award at the weekend BET Awards, the hip-hop artist told the crowd, "I got a son about to be born any day now, so shout-out to him. Pray for me."
Lil Wayne doubled his joy when he announced on-stage at the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Saturday, October 18, during which he received multiple honors, that he is expecting his first son in just a "couple of days." He made the announcement when he was accepting the Lyricist of the Year Award.
Coming on-stage to accept his award, the rapper closed his acceptance speech, telling the crowd who were attending the prestigious awards show, held at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, in Atlanta, "I got a son about to be born any day now, so shout-out to him. Pray for me." He soon thereafter left the stage, offering no further details about his forthcoming son.
Wayne earned a total of 12 BET nominations. In addition to his Lyricist of the Year Award winning, he was also named MVP of the Year and the Alltel Wireless People's Champ at the awards ceremony.
Continuing to ride high in the year following his multiple winning at the weekend BET Awards, he's prepping for the release of his new album, the new version of his platinum LP, "Tha Carter III".
Awaiting in anticipation for his upcoming son, Wayne didn't mention the baby's mother though. The infant will join the hip-hop star's eldest daughter, Reginae Carter, whom he has with his high school sweetheart Antonia "Toya" Johnson, whom he married on Valentines Day of 2004 but divorced in 2006.
Wayne's announcement of his son can be watched in the footage below.
