Rapper Fat Joe and his daughter, Azariah, are giving us major daddy-daughter goals in a new Instagram photo shared by his wife, Lorena. It's evident that the girl favors her father, but that's fine by Mom who refers to them as twins.


The Bronx-raised rapper and his adorable daughter look like best friends as they pose in matching black outfits. She affectionately leans against her father and places a manicured hand over his head. Joe, on the other hand, couldn't have looked more content, beaming toward the camera. The short message accompanying the post also points to the fact that both father and daughter are very close:

Behind Every Daughter is a truly Amazing father #twins


The "Terror Squad" founder, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, has always prided himself on being a devoted family man who is very active in his kids’ lives. Despite his busy schedule, Joe revealed he is always trying to make time for his wife and kids:

“My son did a four year college program in two years. No one in my family ever graduated from college before. So I’m proud of that. I’m a dance dad, too. I go to dance class with my daughter. Those are probably my greatest accomplishments.” 


He recently released a new single, “Attention” after a couple of years away from the music scene. During that time, he went through treatment for depression. As he recalled:

“I was under depression for like two years. I went to see a psychiatrist. I gotta go for my health, for my benefit, for my family, my friends, everybody, so I went to see a psychiatrist and I had to learn how to snap out of that, so two years later I snapped out of it.”

The 47-year old, who has also appeared in a couple of films, shares three kids with his wife, Lorena. 12-year old Azariah has two older brothers- Joey and Ryan.
