Chris Brown Shares Sweet First Pic of Baby Girl (PHOTO)

We give Chris Brown a lot of grief for the things he says and does in public. From airing his dirty relationship laundry all over social media to telling ex Karrueche Tran she should be a "lady" (ugh), let's face it: he's an infuriating character at times. But the new dad, who recently discovered he has a 10-month-old daughter with model Nia Amey, just posted his first photo with little Royalty—one that makes us hopeful that fatherhood has forced him to turn over a new leaf.


Brown's reaction when he discovered he was a dad was a positive one, to our relief. It was the first sign that, maybe, just maybe, the rapper needed someone amazing to come along in his life and help take him to a place where he could find stability and (finally) control his angry impulses. In an ideal world, we would have learned that important life lesson prior to having kids, but things don't always work out that way and we deal the best way we can.

It looks like Brown is dealing by spending quality time with Royalty and falling in love with the little cutie pie:

God has blessed me with my twin. #ROYALTY

How absolutely adorable is his little girl? And, he's right: she is his doppelganger. That look on his face (and hers) tells us everything we need to know: Chris and Royalty have bonded.

We all know Brown has made mistakes in life. But if he can step up to the plate and be the daddy this little girl deserves, I feel he can redeem himself and start over. He now has a purpose greater than himself, which may prove to bring out the best in him.

Plus, let's not forget Brown is only 25. He has his entire life ahead of him and can choose today to live it as a better person.

I'm rooting for him.

Do you think Chris Brown can change now that he's a dad?
