Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is to become a grandfather at the age of 43.
The sportsman confirmed the news on the Hollywood Unlocked: Uncensored podcast, revealing his 20-year-old daughter Iyanna ‘Yaya’ Mayweather is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, rapper NBA Young Boy.
“Always want the best (for her),” Floyd said. “If that makes her happy, then we’re happy – me and her mother (Melissia Rene Brim) are happy.”
He continued: “What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what, it’s between her and her better half.”
Mayweather also addressed his potential son-in-law, NBA Young Boy, real name Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, who previously referred to him as Yaya’s “bch a daddy.”
“Well, my thing is this: it has to do with your upbringing,” the boxer responded. “It starts in the home first. What I’ve always taught my daughter is this: always be respectful when you’re going to anyone’s home. And whatever goes on in your home, don’t talk about it to the world.
“As far as NBA… I look at NBA YoungBoy as a child,” he continued. “I can’t get upset with a kid like that. It could’ve been one of those days for him.”
This will be Yaya’s first child and the sixth for NBA Young Boy, 21.
