Pitbull Dishes About Fatherhood

Armando Christian Pérez, better known as Pitbull, is on the cover of Latina‘s “Hot Guys Issue”!

In the magazine, the Cuban American rapper opens up about everything from dating to being a dad to his four children.

Here’s what Pitbull had to share…

On His Relationship Status: “I always tell people that I’m single, bilingual and ready to mingle!”

On His Feelings About Women: “A woman made me a man at the end of the day [referring to his mother]. I love to learn from women, so I keep a lot around me. They make the world go round.”

On Keeping Things Spicy In The Bedroom: “You shouldn’t step into a relationship going, ‘You’re my property.’ Everyone has fantasies. So speak about it, have fun. It doesn’t mean you’re necessarily going to do anything about it. Sometimes I may mess around with my woman and say, ‘Oye, tell your boyfriend to leave because I’m on my way home. But tell him to make the bed before he goes!”

On Being A Father: “My kids are all characters. It’s crazy to watch a young mind and what a sponge it is. Sometimes my son will be like, ‘Are we going in the Benz or the Beamer?’ And I’m like, ‘Hey, it’s the white care or the silver car, OK? And what do you have to do to get something like this? Work hard. Because I’m not going to give it to you.’ I tell them that my job is to be out here and their job is to go to school.

When the time is right, I will tell them everything about myself. I want them to know that they can always talk to me. I’m never going to judge them. I want them to be tough mentally but beautiful spiritually.”

On Representing Cuban Americans: “I’m not here to exploit our culture – I’m here to empower it, and I want to build a brand like Jennifer Lopez.”

    “…I want them to be tough mentally but beautiful spiritually.”

    That’s very positive and wonderful to hear from a parent, especially a dad.

      You should check out the facts before you say anything about someone. By the way he is not 5’2″

    • CinSin

      I have had the pleasure of working with this man and he is very professional and respectful when it’s time to talk business and the times I have been around him I havent had a measure tape with me but I can surely tell you he is not 5’2 bc he is way taller than I am and I’m 5’4 so I don’t know where exactly you are getting your facts

    I thought he had only one kid. It’s nice to hear him talk about his children. He’s a very sexy man and I think his heart is on the right spot. I saw a picture of him with his dad. He was so cute back then…

    I thought that Pitbull had never had children before… That he was cheated by his friend, Barbara Alba. And the tattoo of a boy on his arm is his nephew… I heard this version… But I am not sure

  • TinaMano

    I think PitBull (Armando) raising his children with values and being well educated is the way to go cause that’s how I’m raising my daughter. Also, having spicy bedroom time is the way to go so nothing gets boring. (I Love fantasy role playing cause you can always learn new tricks.)
