Every dog has his day and after years of lying to the public, Bow Wow came clean about what he believed to be his dirty little secret—he’s a dad!

The rapper revealed via a “Fan Letter” on his official Web site that he is the proud papa to a 3-year-old baby girl named Shai Moss. Even more shocking, the 24-year-old confessed he has had thoughts of suicide, often tears up from being away from his daughter and that his baby’s mother, ex-girlfriend Joie Chavis, has been the source of much of his emotional distress, accusing the model of “playing stupid games.”

Let me start off by saying I love my fans. With out yall I wudda been left the game. For the past 3 years i been batteling life. Even thought about taking my own. I felt like as a kid I did everything and saw everything too fast which spoiled my adult years. I felt as if i had no purpose to live (Thinking selfishly) until god gave me the illest gift of my life. No lambo, no blk card nuffn ammounts to my lil girl. I waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me. Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do. I wanted to be 1st n let yall know the real. My lil girl is getting BIG fast. I love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night. Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didnt. Want her to be able to cheerlead with her lil friends with out some asshole sticking his camera all in my lil girl face. I know how fame is. I missed out on so much that i now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in your life. Yes! I change diapers. Aint as bad as I thought hahaha. I want her to live with me so bad. Jus us 2. Thats my dream man but fellas yall know how it go. Baby gotta stay with they momma and all dat bull. I hate that! So I have to fly 5 hrs away to see her. I find myself going into my i phone book jus lookn at pix of her. Sometimes i tear up cuz  just cant believe it brotha be emotional. All in all I’m good. This is my 1st. I know all my fans gone support me and ride for her like yall been doin my whole career. To the ones that say “I’m heart broken how can he do that to us” well i do have a life that’s not all about movies or making albums. I’m 24 now. I cant wait 4eva. I’m happy and if your a fan then ud be happy too cuz yall gone be with me every step of the way. The bs that comes with having a baby momma is expected. So i neva trip. Jus gotta suck it up keep chin high and try not let her get the best of my feelings by playin them stupid games. Ima stay positive and keep maintaining long as I got yall I cant lose.  I love yall.

Since posting the letter on his Web site, the young star whose real name is Shad Gregory Moss, has been overwhelmed by support garnered from fans and celebrities alike. “Even Tyrese, who’s a good friend of mine, called me and was like, ‘Man, you don’t even know what you just did,’” said Bow Wow. “He said, ‘You just made my week because you’re the first young African-American… you have a chance to have every male your age and younger who has kids now…You can make them step up and become better men now.’ When he told me that I was like, ‘Wow, I didn’t even think about that and I never had my father in my life…ever! So this just makes me want to step up and just go harder even more and give her (baby daughter) everything my father never gave (me).”

Looks like you can teach an old dog new tricks after all. Learn more about the secret life of Bow Wow and catch a quick glimpse of his daughter in the trailer for his new documentary, Who Is Shad Moss?

    Yes! I read that too….What a shame and how lame is that? First and foremost, what gets me is he got all this dough so paying for a paternity test shouldn’t be an issue! Furthermore, this lil girl is 3……At some point she will find out you had dogged her for the first three years of her life…..watch right quick how that sparkle of fatherhood fade from his eye when she checks him for that….. And having a lil girl makes you treat your mom better….really? You should’ve been done that since she is the one who got you where you been…..Plus, real men don’t dish out their affairs and problems with their child’s mom. It is no one’s business but their own, and it definitely should be kept that way for the sake of the child….just my 2 cents!

    Plus….I’m sorry,but no cookies for what you are suppose to do, so both of them need to stop……Both haven’t done anything prominent lately so to me it seems like a celeb opp….Sorry, but I had to drop that one on blast….

    I am not one sided, I will say this in his defense. Yes, I think it is great he is coming to terms with being a father. With that being said, man up! No one knows how to raise these kids because they do not come with manuals. However, if a man is truly trying to be better than what their father was, then Bow Wow and all men who deny their children have a long road ahead of them. All I can say is stay focused on what is right, and not what looks great on a blog or fan page. It’s not the fans you need redemption from.
