A woman has finally changed Chris Brown's bad boy ways ... his 19-month-old daughter Royalty.
Although conceived while he was still dating Karreuche Tran, Chris' ex-girlfriend Nia Guzman gave birth to the precious little one in summer 2014. He now has joint custody and spends two weeks out of each month with her.
"So I have a co-parenting job that's pretty amazing but, you know, learning how to be a dad, especially learning how to take care of somebody else, you know, I barely know how to brush my teeth in the morning!" he said during an appearance on On Air with Ryan Seacrest. "It's actually great. It's very humbling. You know, it's very calming. I think I was a lot, you know, rambunctious, very hyper as a kid but now seeing that 10 times over, my daughter's kinda like mellowing me out."
And despite assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, mulitple brushes with the law, stints in jail, rehab and anger management, the 26-year-old claims little Royalty has taught him how to clean up his act.
“It’s actually great, it’s very humbling, and it’s very calming. Being able to be a father and seeing my daughter from those gradual stages — from crawling, to walking, to saying words, to learning different things every day — is kind of teaching me patience, and it’s been great."
She's also inspiring him professionally as he named his forthcoming album, Royalty, in her honor and even features her on the cover with him.
Let's hope his disposition really has changed and Chris isn't just singing the same old tune.
