Hip-Hop’s self-proclaimed “player” for life, Too Short, has just become a father for the very first time at the age of 53.

The “Gettin’ It” rapper’s on-again/off-again girlfriend, Sue Ivey, gave birth to their daughter back in December, TMZ reports.

Too Short and Ivey’s new bundle of joy was named Yanni Shaw, and she will be featured in the documentary that Too Short is currently shooting alongside Ray J and his, manager, David Weintraub.

Too Short will be performing live in Indianapolis next month at The Vogue Theater on October 17.
