Along with hanging out with Kanye for his 36th birthday earlier this month, Bey recently received a baby shower invitation from Kim K.

After baby KimYe news went viral, Atlanta’s 2 Chainz and T.I. publicly congratulated their hip-hop pal.
“It’s funny, I talked it him and I was like, ‘Bruh, I think I need you at Birthday Bash,” 2 Chainz told MTV News of a convo that he and West had prior to ‘Ye’s daughter being born. “He was like, ‘Kim won’t let me go, we might have the baby’ and it’s funny that they literally had it. … I try to do father/daughter time all the time. I think it’s very important that fathers spend times with their daughters.” Tip believes that even though balacning fatherhood and fame isn’t always easy, West has all that it takes to be a great dad. “If he’s as dedicated and committed to fatherhood as he has been to everything else he has done, I think that’s gonna be one brilliant baby,” he said of the rapper’s daughter.
