New daddy Future is beaming about his first son.

The rapper spoke to reporters during the Bacardi Rum and Vice Celebrate Cuban Independence Day in NYC where he was scheduled to perform and was admittedly missing his little guy.

“She’s feeling great,”said Future of his wife-to-be Ciara. “She’s with our son right now [in L.A.],” the rapper-producer added. “I just texted her when I got off the airplane, and I’m going to get on the phone with her to see how everything is going.”

While Baby Future is not yet a week old, his daddy insists that the little boy is already showing a big personality. He is “a mixture of both” mom and dad.
As for mommy, she’s getting her bearings and learning the ropes. Future is confident in his fiancee’s skills. “She’ll be a great mom. She’s working at it every day and over time, I think she’ll be the best.”

“I want him to be better than me,” Future said of his second child. (The rapper has an 11-year-old son with model Jessica Smith.) “I would encourage him in anything he wants to do,” Future said. “I want to be behind him, of course.”

Before any mentoring takes place, Future will have to tackle another role first: Diaper duty. The rapper also admitted he plans to get his hands dirty. “You have to say you did it,” he said. “I’ll make sure I change a few diapers—a hands-on Dad!”

Ciara has been crying tears of joy ever since she left the hospital with her little guy. She took to Twitter to express her abundance of happiness:
