The Rapper’s “New Fear” Is Not Being There For His Daughter

During an appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast that aired on Wednesday (Aug. 2), Post Malone told host Alex Cooper how he’s enjoying fatherhood.

He and his partner welcomed their daughter in May 2022. Post Malone eventually announced her arrival during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show.

During his sit-down with Cooper, the rapper was asked what he’s afraid of, and he said a “new fear” he’s recently acquired is “not being able to be there for [his] baby.”

He added, “That’s why I tried to slow down on drinking — to take better care of my body.”

While on the subject of being a first-time father, Post Malone later noted that he is currently the “happiest [he’s] ever been.”

He also joked that he’s pretty sure his daughter’s first words will be his “credit card number.”

Post Malone Declares He’ll Be A “Hot Dad”

While speaking on Post Malone embracing fatherhood, we should add that he previously acknowledged being “pumped” for the experience.

During an appearance on The Zane Lowe Show, he recalled gearing up for parenthood since he was younger. In fact, the artist mentioned having a “baby doll” he would “carry around everywhere.”

“As a kid, I was like 4 or 5, and I had this little baby I would carry around everywhere. It was a baby doll. And I thought that was the coolest thing. I would take him around everywhere. And I don’t know how long that lasted. But my mom still has it.”

After noting that he was “pumped up” for fatherhood, he humorously added, “I’m gonna be a hot dad.”

As he’s “slow[ing] down” on drinking and focusing on his health more, it sounds like Post Malone may be committed to this “hot dad” goal!
