Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather gave birth to her first son with rapper NBA YoungBoy earlier this month, and she shared a touching photo of her father holding his first grandchild. The photo featured the 43-year-old holding his grandson, Kentrell Gaulden Jr., who is named after his father.
Floyd reacted to Yaya being pregnant late last year with Jason Lee on Hollywood Unlocked, stating, “I just want the best for my daughter. If that makes her happy, then we’re happy. Me and her mother is happy. What I try not to do is get into her personal business. Because once she’s no longer under my roof then, you know what, it’s between her and her better half.”
In the same interview, Mayweather was asked about NBA YoungBoy calling Floyd “[Iyanna’s] b*tch a** daddy.” He started out by saying, “My thing is this: it has to do with your upbringing.” Floyd continued, “It starts in the home first. So what I’ve always taught my daughter is this — always be respectful when you go to anyone’s home. And whatever goes on in your home, don’t talk about it to the world. And far as — ’cause I look at NBA Youngboy as a child. I can’t get upset with a kid like that. With this new generation, kids, you know, kids talk about pills and kids talk about syrup. So you know, it could’ve been one of those days for him. At the end of the day, I only want the best for them
