When we imagine Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s parenting style, we picture a lot of platinum-encrusted diapers, Pegasus rides and, of course, that million dollar minivan. Jay-Z, however, pictures himself repeating his own father’s mistake of walking out on the family. “It makes me a little paranoid because no matter what, I don’t think any person, or any male, goes into a relationship thinking that they’re going to leave or wouldn’t be there,” Hov told People at GQ‘s Men of the Year party last night. “I think the circumstances a lot of times dictates things, right?” The fact that Jay-Z is even worried about bringing his paternal A-game suggests that he’ll be an excellent pop. Plus, if not Beyonce will literally do the “Run The World (Girls)” dance on his face.
Despite his prenatal fears, the rapper seems secure in his knowledge that he will make an appropriately awesome father for Babyonce. “I come from a real place where you had to be a highly principled person,” he explained, “so, I’m pretty confident that I’ll figure it out.” Oh, and it turns out we were wrong about those diapers. They wouldn’t be platinum. “No, leather!” Jay-Z joked. And…we’ve seamlessly fit that detail into the fantasy. Back to the minivan!
