It’s been a rocky road for Rasheeda from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta after her husband Kirk told her to have an abortion on national television and then was caught creeping on the low. Lately, RaSheeda has admitted that things have been sticky and she’s been thinking about ending their 13-year-marriage, but the couple looked like one big happy family again as Freddy O snapped them leaving the hospital with their newborn son Karter earlier this week.
Speaking for the first time since she’s given birth, Rasheeda and Kirk dished to Hip Hop Weekly on the baby’s birth as well as being 100% real on television when it came to the issues in their relationship. RaSheeda also revealed that, no matter what you may see on television, Kirk will and always has been a good father.
Kirk on if he was on hand for the birth of his son
Yes. I was there from the very beginning. Rasheeda woke up one morning and said, “Oh, it’s time.” She just knew. She was cramping, etc. and she said, “it’s time to go.” I wasn’t nervous. It’s just that the baby came ahead of the due date, September 6, so we weren’t totally ready. We still had to put the bed together, etc. and get organized, but now, I’m excited.
Kirk on their issues being played out on television
A lot of people try to hide things and we chose not to do it. We were 100 percent real with it and let it be what it is. I think that people have to see me as a husband and a manager and a lot of them only see the relationship side. I did say the things and they were outrageous but at the end of the day it’s in God’s hands and He knows what’s best.
Rasheeda on working things out with Kirk
It’s an everyday thing. It’s a work in progress. When the child comes into play, it’s a feeling you can’t explain. Although a lot of things had been shown and seen, I already knew that when it comes to be a father, this would be a role that he’s always known to play. Things were put into perspective on television that he was not a good father but he’s a great father and my older son Kai is extremely happy to have this little brother. It’s a good time for us and I don’t want anything to get on my nerves.
