Rapper Lil Scrappy has his hands full, literally and figuratively. Not only is the rapper and producer busy with his career, but he is also basking in the bliss of fatherhood.
Scrappy is a proud father of three children, two of whom are still babies and for obvious reasons, need a lot of attention. He is more than happy to give it to them.

A DOTING FATHER
In an Instagram post, the rapper shared a rare photo of himself with all three of his kids. He held his baby girl Xylo in his arms. Meanwhile, his baby son, Breland rested his head on his dad's chest.
Scrappy's eldest daughter Emani's face was not visible in the picture since she was busy showering her sister with love. He penned an emotional caption about how much he appreciates being a parent.
The "Rock Yo Hips" rapper admitted in the past that he struggles to co-parent with his ex...
Scrappy also threw shade at the ones who act like their children are their world just so that they can have social media content or friends. He wrote:
"[Don't] forget to actually love [them] and build with them cause [you're] going to need them, nobody else will [be] there for you that’s why God blesses us with kids."
SCRAPPY'S CO-PARENTING STRUGGLES
Scrappy and his wife Adi "Bambi" Benson welcomed their baby girl Xylo back in August. The "Love & Hip Hop" stars share two biological children together.
Scrappy shares his eldest daughter Emani with his ex-girlfriend, Erica Dixon. The duo does not exactly have an amicable relationship.
The "Rock Yo Hips" rapper admitted in the past that he struggles to co-parent with his ex and even called her a basic baby mama because she allegedly lied about not getting child support money.
He later on clarified that he meant to call her "typical" instead of "basic" and also said that he respects her as the mother of their daughter Emani.
ABOUT THE CHILD SUPPORT CASE
However, he also said that he was wrongfully sent to jail for not paying child support money, claiming that he paid Dixon $2000 each month even before she was born.
Even though Dixon and Scrappy do not get along, Emani has a great relationship with her parents and they love her with all their hearts.
