The Bennetts

A few days ago, Chance the Rapper and his Wife, Kirsten Bennett welcomed the newest addition to their family. The couple welcomed their second child, Marli. The pair, who have been together for upwards of six years had their first child, Kensli in 2015 and married earlier this year. 

Paternity Leave

Following the announcement of their new-born, Chance took to Instagram to break down why he feels he should push his tour back.

“I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work.”

I think we can all agree, it’s a commendable reason. Of course some fans are disappointed, but we aren’t mad at a dad who is putting his kids first!

See the full post below.

The tour has been pushed back to kick off in January 2020. You can still buy tickets OR get a refund at chanceraps.com

I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work. When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli. I apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope you’ll understand and forgive me in time. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th and you can still get tix or your refund if you are unavailable at chanceraps.com & a few of the shows are still being rescheduled as well so stay tuned. I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW 🙏🏾🙏🏾 SIDENOTE: 9/28 CHICAGO AT UNITED CENTER IS STILL ON AS WELL AS “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FEST” “IHEART MUSIC FEST” & “MIAMI BEACH POP FEST”! ❤️
