He has two sons, and Sean “Diddy” Combs is about to find out what having daughters is like.
“I’m having twin girls,” Diddy, 36, tells Vibe in its November issue, the Associated Press reports.
“People say, to a so-called ladies’ man or whatever, that when you have girls it changes you,” says Diddy, whose new album, Press Play, is due Oct. 17. “So I was like, ‘What’s God trying to tell me by giving me two girls?’ When I pray every morning, I thank God for showing me what he showed me while I still have a chance to enjoy myself.”
The music mogul told PEOPLE this week that when he learned Porter was expecting twins he was utterly shocked. “To see it for someone else it’s like, ‘Okay, they are having twins, that’s cool.’ But to think you are having twins, I never would have thought that in a million years. It goes to show just how great God is.”
Diddy also tells Vibe he “would love to get married” – but not quite yet. “I didn’t grow up around a married family, so it’s taking me a bit longer,” he says. “A lot of guys out there get married, and they still do their own thing. I don’t want to get married and fail.”
Diddy broke the news of Porter’s pregnancy to PEOPLE exclusively in August. Later, he revealed she was expecting twins in a video posted on his MySpace.com page, but didn’t disclose the babies’ sex. Porter is due in December.
“After Tom and Kate, and Brad and Angelina, I had to find a way to top them all,” Diddy told PEOPLE earlier this month. “This is truly a blessing and we’re really happy about the news.”
Diddy and Porter have an 8-year-old son, Christian, and Diddy has a 12-year-old son, Justin, with fashion stylist Misa Hylton-Brim.
