ENTERTAINMENT: Chance the Rapper delays tour to take paternity leave

Modern dads are getting more and more involved in childcare.

Research shows that dads are spending three times as much time with their kids than the previous generation of dads did. Apparently, this leads to a boost in the child’s cognitive, behavioral, and psychological development.

In lieu of this, celebrity dads are no different. They prefer to spend more time with their kids. Take, for instance, Chance the Rapper. The American rapper decided to put off his highly-anticipated tour so that he can spend more time at home with his week-old daughter, Marli.

He said via Instagram:

I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful 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. 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 apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope you’ll understand and forgive me in time. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th and you can still get tix or your refund if you are unavailable at chanceraps.com & a few of the shows are still being rescheduled as well so stay tuned. I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW 1f64f 1f3fe - ENTERTAINMENT: Chance the Rapper delays tour to take paternity leave1f64f 1f3fe - ENTERTAINMENT: Chance the Rapper delays tour to take paternity leave SIDENOTE: 9/28 CHICAGO AT UNITED CENTER IS STILL ON AS WELL AS “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FEST” “IHEART MUSIC FEST” & “MIAMI BEACH POP FEST”! 2764 - ENTERTAINMENT: Chance the Rapper delays tour to take paternity leave
