Family comes first for Chance the Rapper who just postponed his tour in order to devote more time to his wife and newborn. The 26-year-old father of two doesn't want to miss any milestones in his young daughter's life.

Chance the Rapper took to his social media accounts just a few days after the birth of his second daughter to announce his decision to step back from his career and move forward as a father.

“At this point as a husband and father of two, I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli.”

“I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour,” the 26-year-old wrote on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts as he shared a photo of him holding his days old-daughter, Marli with his eldest, Kensli, clinging on to him. This is the first photo of him and his two girls together and it's the sweetest.

Chance goes on to say that it’s been “one of the greatest” years of his life citing his marriage, his new baby and first album but admits, “it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work.”

“When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most,” he recalled.

The devoted father realizes this time around it has to be different.

“At this point as a husband and father of two, I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli.”

The rapper apologized for postponing his tour but assured his fans that they could refund their purchased tickets. He also announced its new kickoff date on January 15, 2020.

As a parting note, Chance expressed his love for his fans and looked forward to his return.

“I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW.”

Chance’s tour was supposed to promote his first-ever album, “The Big Day” which dropped in June. Though he opted to beg off from the tour this year, his promoter, Live Nation was very supportive of his admirable intentions. In a tweet, the entertainment company said, “Chance, we are so happy for the new addition to your family and can’t wait to see you in 2020!”

Not many celebrity fathers could do what Chance did, considering he was delaying the promotion of his first album. This just goes to show that the young rapper has his priorities straight. After all, being a father gave him immense joy as he once told Complex.

It’s not as if, though, that he’s turning back on his music completely. In fact, he announced that his originally scheduled show in his hometown Chicago on September 28 will still go on. Fans will also get to see him perform at the “Life is Beautiful” Festival in Las Vegas this month.

Now that Chance will have more time in his hands to be a father, we look forward to hearing about the milestones he won’t be missing this time around.
