Apart from his achievements in the field of sports, Chad ‘Ocho Cinco’ Johnson has been thrusted into the limelight for his highly publicized relationship with Evelyn Lozada. The couple had a short-lived marriage tainted with cases of domestic violence which put the NFL player in a bad light and led to his incarceration.
Along with his popularity are seven children the athlete sired with different women. Two of those children, daughters Chade and Cha’iel, recently graced his Instagram revealing a more endearing side of the 40-year-old.
Chad stood in between his grown daughters and slung each of his arms around them in a photo he shared while proudly introducing them to his followers in his caption. Both girls were casually dressed in colorful outfits while their fashionable dad channeled a summer look in floral shorts and a white T-shirt.
Not many are privy to this but Chad has a unique trait as a father. For one thing, apart from having a strong affinity with fashion, he is skillful with makeup. As surprising as this sounds, Chad once exhibited hi s prowess in handling a makeup brush when he shared a senior photo of his other daughter, Jicyra Johnson, and took credit for her look. Chad revealed he was responsible for his daughter’s makeup and even explained his process in his caption.
“I used studio fix NW 45 for her face. Amber Palette on eyes, spiked pencil for brows, for mat for cheeks & Oh Baby Lip Glass.”
Chad went on to defend himself to fans who were probably surprised to discover this hidden talent of his.
“As a father I shouldn’t know how to do this shit but I’m the G.O.A.T. when it comes to my kids, I pretty much suck at everything else except FIFA & football..(If you want my services for special occasions I’ll be available to the public in 2020, I’m booked up until then)”
Meanwhile, Chad is also extra attentive to his daughter Cha’iel who’s a rising track and field star. The 13-year-old has been competing in the sport nationally and her father is as supportive as can be. As her coach, he would often share photos from his daughter’s events and proudly speak of her achievements.
Chad wed his first wife Evelyn on July 2012 but they separated after two months. Their divorce was finalized by September that same year. After his separation from the ‘Basketball Wives’ star, he moved on to another relationship with Kimi Koutoure. In the same year, he also dated Amber Priddy.
