Macklemore ‘freaked out’ on hearing about wife’s pregnancy
Rapper Macklemore says he freaked out when he discovered his wife, Tricia Davis, was pregnant with their first child.
The 32-year-old Can’t Hold Us hitmaker feared he was not ready to be a father, but fell in love with their three-month-old daughter, Sloane Ava Simone, when she was born in May, reported Female First.
“It was just like, you know, ‘God, I’m not ready for this right now. ‘I am not ready to be a father, Like, I can’t even get sober.’
“And it was one of those, just like, ‘Please, like, don’t, you know, please don’t be pregnant.’
“And I heard tears from the bathroom. I was <g data-gr-id="26">like, ‘</g>Oh my God, I know what those tears mean... It was quickly this, like, <g data-gr-id="25">wake-up</g> call. I got sober and I got happy again.”
The singer said he was overwhelmed with love when he first saw his daughter. “She’s a big baby. She’s a 10-pound baby... And I was like, ‘This is, this is my child.’ It’s this unconditional love that happens instantaneously.”
