On the eve of her father’s impending jail sentence, Lil Wayne’s daughter is keeping her head up.
Reginae Carter, the 11-year-old daughter of Wayne and his ex-wife Antonia Carter, took to Twitter to thank her well wishers and share her feelings. “Thank all of yall but Im staying strong because I got family and friends that care for me,” she wrote.
Although her father won’t be around over the next year, Reginae remains optimistic. “I’m just happy he didn’t get a longer time,” she said.
Like her dad, she shares a love for sports, witnessing the Saints defeat the Colts at Sunday’s Super Bowl in Miami. “But on the bright side who saw the saints beat the colts,” she asked. “I did.”
Reginae’s mother and Weezy’s high school sweetheart Toya Carter also chimed in with her thoughts. “Sad day for me and my fam,” she tweeted.
Lil Wayne is scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow morning in Manhattan Supreme Court to a year-long prison term for gun possession. It is likely he will start serving his time the same day.
Before heading to jail, the rapper reportedly shot nine videos on Friday and Saturday in Miami, including one for “Da Da Da” off Rebirth and a new song from the highly-anticipated Tha Carter IV.
