For Diddy at 40, It's All About His Twin Daughters
Though he’s dealing with that fact he’s just turned 40, proud papa Diddy has an even bigger issue on his plate: keeping up with his twin girls (with ex Kim Porter), D’Lila Star and Jessie James, who turn 3 on Monday.
“They’re talking a lot more and they’re very demanding,” says the Grammy-winning hip-hop star and entrepreneur. As for what they demand from their dad: “Just time,” he says. “‘Sit down. Don’t go anywhere, stay here, do this.’ They give me a lot of orders.”
And despite his demanding schedule – in addition to managing his business empire, Diddy is working on a new album, Last Train to Paris, and continuing to promote Ciroc vodka – he says his girls can always persuade him to take a break.
“When they tell me to sit down,” he says, “everything else gets put to the back burner.”
As for hitting the milestone, “It was a shock for me, because my spirit and my energy are so young,” he says. “I feel the same way I felt when I was 25.”
So after just two days of being “hung up” on turning the big 4-0, “I think my clock is going backwards,” he says. “I think I’m 39 ½ now.”
