Sean “Diddy” Combs admits that although he considered himself a good father, he was a part-time dad. His ex-girlfriends Kim Porter, with whom he shares twins D’Lila and Jessie and son Christian, as well as stepson Quincy Brown, Misa Hylton, who has a son, Justin with him and Sarah Chapman, who he shares a daughter, Chance, with, did the heavy lifting

But the unexpected passing of Porter last year at the age of 47 made Diddy a single father to his 11-year-old twins, the only two children the couple shared who were not grown. (Christian is 20). It also meant that Diddy was now going to have to be a more hands-on father to all of his kids, who counted on Porter as a supporter, and who its assumed, also helped arrange and keep things running smoothly with the other mothers through the inevitable holiday get-togethers, play dates, etc., that would keep the siblings connected.
