“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Lil Scrappy recently welcomed his third child – his second with wife Adizia “Bambi” Benson. He has been very open about fatherhood.


Rapper and TV personality Lil Scrappy, who has appeared in “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” since 2012, has three children with two different women, daughters Emani and Xylo, and son Breland.

In a 2019 interview with V-103 Atlanta, about nine months after Breland was born, Scrappy admitted that he was a “hands-on daddy” and that, since the boy was watching him, he needed to be on point.

Long-time fans of LHHATL might find it hard to believe that Scrappy’s daughter with Erica Dixon, Emani Richardson, is not a kid anymore. She’s 15 years old and already went to a school dance.

In May 2019, Dixon took to Instagram to share a photo of her daughter rocking an orange feathered gown, high ponytail, high-heels, and makeup, ready for her eighth-grade formal dance.


Emani’s date also appeared in the pic, and he opted for a blue suit and bow tie. Scrappy uploaded a photo posing with Emani and Breland on social media to commemorate the milestone as well.


The proud father of three admitted he couldn’t believe how much his daughter grew, adding that she was “definitely gorgeous to the next dimension.”


Unfortunately, Scrappy's relationship with Dixon is broken. Back in July 2019, he called her a “basic baby mama” for allegedly lying about him not paying child support. His comment was considered bitter and disrespectful, so he later said he meant “typical.”

According to Scrappy, he has been taking care of Emani even before she was born. He pointed out that Dixon should stop lying and telling everybody she’s not getting money.

The couple made a Kobe Bryant-themed gender reveal.



On September 21, 2018, about a year after Scrappy and Bambi Benson tied the knot, they welcomed their first child together, Breland. Both parents shared their excitement on social media.

Benson uploaded a photo from the hospital cradling her son while Scrappy was proudly looking at him. In the caption, she admitted it felt like a dream and that Breland was “just everything.”


Months later, Scrappy thanked God for Breland’s health and confessed he woke up “way more grateful” for his family. The rapper also urged people to be grateful for what God prepared for them.

It is important to point out that Benson suffered a miscarriage in 2014, so welcoming a child after such a traumatic experience was probably the best feeling in the world.



Benson and Scrappy’s second child is Xylo. During quarantine, the couple made a Kobe Bryant-themed gender reveal and broadcasted it live on Instagram so that their followers could join them.

The couple invited Emani over for the event, and the three of them threw mini basketballs filled with purple powder at the hoop. Scrappy couldn’t stop repeating, “Issa Girl!


Xylo was born on August 4, and the couple took fans through most of the delivery by posting photos and videos on social media. The rapper wrote that the baby was seven pounds and five ounces at birth.

He also admitted to feeling blessed and thanked God for giving him and Benson a healthy baby. Scrappy’s Instagram account is filled with photos of his children, too. What a doting father!
