The gospel community is getting over the surprise New Year’s Eve announcement by popular gospel artist, Deitrick Haddon, that he is now engaged and the father of a baby girl.
In an emotional FB statement posted on December 31, 2012, Deitrick wrote, “I can say 2012 was the most challenging year @ the same time the greatest year of my life because in the midst of all the darkness & depression that seemed to have no end God sent an angel to give me hope in the form of my baby girl.. Yes she was born out of wedlock which is absolutely wrong for a man in my shoes….but I must say that if it wasn’t for that child & her mother, the negative headlines about Deitrick Haddon would have been more devastating than anything!!!”
The singer posted up a picture of his daughter, named Destin Monet Haddon, and shared his hopes for 2013, which included leaving behind ‘all the negative energy’ and ‘owning his mistakes’. He also added that he wanted to “be the best father to my beautiful daughter and be the great husband I know I can be to my future wife and give God all glory! Goodbye 2012 & hello 2013.”
