The father of six was under fire for a moment for posting several photos of his other children and not baby Bonnie. However, on Jan. 25 Stevie seemingly let it be known that he’s still present in his daughter’s life by sharing an image of the 2-year-old on his social media.
In the photo, the toddler appears to be looking away from the camera while standing against a couch. He simply captioned the photo of his daughter with a heart emoji.
Fans surprisingly bombarded Stevie’s photo with positive comments applauding him as a father.
“This made my day real talk💞, “one fan wrote. “She a baby who needs her dad no matter what you and joseline ever go through dont take it out on her.”
Another added, “Finally! Bout time you show love to your baby girl ♥️💖your kids always 1st🙌.”
One fan chimed in underneath Stevie J.’s comments and added that his ex-fiancée Joseline Hernandez was the reason the music producer hasn’t been able to see the 2-year-old.
“Its A Very Sadd Situation how Children become the Victim, becuz of Choices Adults make,” a fan commented. “Spend quality time with your daughter. Don’t let Joseline keep you from Bonnie.”
Bonnie Bella came into the world in December 2016. Months before their daughter was born, the off-and-on couple officially called it quits. The pair had been dating since 2012 and were even engaged for a while until both parties accused one another of cheating.
The Grammy Award-winning producer initially denied that the baby was his daughter after accusing Hernandez of cheating on him. However, the “Puerto Rican Princess” had the court make him take a paternity test, and the results proved he was the father of Bonnie Bella.
In 2017, Hernandez and Stevie J. fell into a custody battle over the 2-year-old before finally settling the case in April 2018. Both parents were awarded custody of their daughter, but Hernandez was given primary physical custody. Stevie also agreed to pay his ex-fiancée $1,000 month in child support.
