"Being that my father was never in my life, this just makes me want to give her everything I wished my father had given me," he tells Us. "She's a blessing."

Bow Wow (who first became a music star as "Lil Bow Wow" at age 13) says in his blog that as a kid, "I did everything and saw everything too fast."

For that reason, he hopes "my boo boo" can "have everything I didn't." 

"[I] want her to be able to cheerlead with her lil friends without some a**hole sticking his camera all in my lil girl face," the first-time father says. "I missed out on so much that I now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in your life.
