Backstage at Power 105.1's Powerhouse concert Tuesday night, October 28, Lil Wayne had a brief interview with U.S. radio station, Power 105.1, to which he revealed he helped delivering his newborn son Dwayne Carter III. "I delivered him. I held the left leg the whole time," the hip-hop artist stated with delight.
Recalling his presence on the delivery room the day his baby boy was born on October 22, Wayne said, "It was nasty, very nasty," but he quickly added, "it was wonderful." He went on gushing about little Dwayne, "Oct. 22, 9:25 A.M., 7 lbs., 12 oz. He's the best thing to ever happen to me, next to my daughter." The full interview can be heard on the official site of Power 105.1 radio station.
Wayne announced on-stage during his award acceptance speech at the BET Hip-Hop Awards on October 18 that he was expecting a baby boy in just a "couple of days." "I got a son about to be born any day now, so shout-out to him. Pray for me," he told the audience.
Four days later, Dwayne was born at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. The identity of his mother wasn't disclosed though. He joins Wayne's daughter, Reginae Carter, whom he has with his high school sweetheart Antonia "Toya" Johnson. He and Antonia married in 2004 and divorced two years later.
