Dwight Howard Vows To Change The Face Of Professional Athletes As Fathers

Unlike the stigma surrounding famous athletes and fatherhood, Dwight Howard vows that he will never, ever desert his child! The basketball star opens up to Esquire magazine about why some pros never get to see their children.

“It’s very important,” Howard tells the magazine of his role as a father. “Hopefully me and my son’s mom will come to a better agreement for my son.

“When I do see him, we have the best time in the world. He acts just like me. He tries to run like me. He looks back and smiles like me. Fatherhood is great and it will get better,” says Howard, adding that despite what society says, his son is “gonna need his father in his life.”

“People say you don’t need a father to be successful. I take offense to that. I had an argument with my mom about Father’s Day and why it’s not celebrated like Mother’s Day,” he adds.
