Kennedy Rapudo, a businessman, vented his rage after his kid failed to show up for his 8th birthday celebration.
Rapudo posted a heartfelt message about his troubles with his son, who is turning eight years old, in an emotional post.
Rapudo had recently won a legal battle with his baby mama and was overjoyed to be reunited with his son, but his joyful day ended in despair.
He went on to discuss the difficulties he faces in trying to be a present father in his son's life.
The businessman insinuated that the baby mama might have prevented the son from going to the birthday party.
“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 celebrating my son's 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,” Rapudos said in part.
He encouraged men going through the same to keep fighting for their kids until the day things will be better.
“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 our 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.
To his son he said; “To my son: Happy 8th birthday baby boy, I love you to the moon and back,”.
Amber Ray joined the conversation, reminding Rapudo that he should never forget that he is a good father.
“You are a good father …… never forget that!😘❤️❤️,” Amber to Rapudo.
Rapudo is a father of three – two kids from his past relationships and one from his current relationship with Amber Ray.
