Father's Day will be extra special this year for Chad Johnson and Fabolous. The former NFL player and the rapper each welcomed new babies last week. Johnson and his girl, Crystal Bates, had a daughter, whom they named Kennedi Chanel Johnson, while Fab and his longtime love, Emily Bustamante of Love & Hip Hop, expanded their family with a second son, joining their 7-year-old, Johan.


Both proud dads shared their joy on social media. The Brooklyn MC posted a selfie in scrubs, captioned with a prayer hands emoji and the hashtag #GodBless. Ochocinco, meanwhile, announced the news on Twitter. "New Infantry arrived at 8:34: Kennedi Chanel Johnson, 7 pounds 6 ounces to the sound of Frankie Beverly & Maze...," he wrote, adding that he and his lady have been searching for "infant Louboutin's & Margiela's for 9 months w/ no luck."

Congrats to Chad, Fab and their respective families!
