Kennedy Rapudo and his second baby mama have had a long battle in court about their son.
This weekend, Rapudo was to spend time with his son as he turned 8 years old.
The father of three had set up a birthday celebration for the boy little did he know that he wouldn’t be gracing the event.
Taking to his Instagram account, Rapudo, who was highly hurt, shared a video of the birthday set up as he poured out his emotions.
“Not all absent dads are deadbeats, but just because we are not deadbeats doesn’t mean that our hearts are metallic. I was eagerly looking forward to celebrate my sons 8th birthday today!
“This would be the first long weekend to have him for a sleepover (after a lengthy court battle) and you should have felt the joy in our hearts. Unfortunately, the moment was “once again” robbed from us because he was a no show!” he opened up.
Rapudo went ahead to encourage those going through a similar situation.
“To those who walk the often silent path of longing, who choose stability even when it means sacrifice, I see you. Not every missed moment defines our love; our hearts tell the stories our words can’t. Even in absence, our love remains boundless. Every sacrifice, every tear, every missed celebration only amplifies the depth of our love. Keep fighting, keep believing, and most importantly, keep loving. Our children feel it, even from afar.#UnseenHeroes,” he said and proceeded to celebrate his son.
“To my son: Happy 8th birthday baby boy, I love you to the moon and back!” Rapudo said.
Reacting to his post, his fiancée Amber Ray assured him that he has always been a good dad.
Amber Ray and Rapudo have a daughter. Rapudo also has a 12-year old daughter from his previous relationship.
