Taking a page out of Dwyane Wade’s fathering book, Ludacris (real name Chris Bridges) is the newest celebrity that ALLEGEDLY became a father outside of his relationship. Reportedly, The Fast and Furious actor started a short fling with a woman named Tamika Fuller earlier this year, when he was on break from longtime and current girlfriend Euxodie. The short-lived relationship, resulted in him fathering a child born last month. According to TMZ, the two had a daughter named Cai Bella Bridges, born on December 9, 2013.
Although his newborn claimed his last name Ludacris has yet to officially claim his daughter’s paternity and he’s in the midst of protecting his assets between his new baby mother. Reportedly, the rapper has filed legal documents claiming he makes $25,842.41 a month and under Georgia law he would be obliged to pay $1,754.66 a month in child support. Folk are speculating that his new baby mama may go after him for all he’s worth, so he wants to set a limit on the amount of child support he will be scheduled to pay to the child’s mother.
This is Luda’s second child. He has a close relationship with his 11-year-old daughter named Karma from a previous relationship. In regards to his Ludacris Foundation he spoke on how fatherhood changed him.
Fatherhood changed my whole perspective on life–I went from being selfish to selfless overnight. When I look [at] my daughter, all I can do is smile with the joy and pride that I had a small hand in creating such a beautiful being.
And in a 2010 interview with OK! magazine he talked about how he always makes time for his daughter.
In terms of my daughter, I make time. In terms of my schedule, I have to make time one way or another, whether she comes on the road with me, or if I go home and spend time with her.
With his positive approach on fatherhood, we’re confident that once the paternity is officially determined he’ll focus on having a relationship with Cai much like the one he has with his first born. There has been no official statement from Ludacris about this report, along with no further info about his break-up earlier this year with Eudoxie.
