Mendeecees sent a heart-felt video message to his 11-month-old daughter Skylar.

Recently, the Love & Hip Hop NY star was sentenced to eight years behind bars. Mendeecees expressed in a video that he always wanted a baby girl. He went on to say, that he loves Skylar very much and hopes that one day she will be a great woman like her mother, Yandy.

The video transcription reads:

Dear Skylar, 

I always wanted a girl first. I always prayed for you. I’m your protector. There’s no man, or nobody on earth going to love you more than I love you, protect you and just want the best for you. And I want to be everything you need me to be to you in your life. Your best friend, your dad. If you need a shoulder to cry on or a hand to hold, long as I’m alive, I’m going to always be there for you. 

Your mother, she’s a perfect woman, a role model. And if you could turn out to be half of your mother, I would be so grateful because I love what your mother stands for. She’s a woman with class. I fell in love with her because she was so different than what I was used to. So hopefully, you’ll pick up the traits of your moms and carry out all the stuff she believe in, you’ll believe in. And it’s going to take you a long way. 

I might not be here with you at the moment, and it’s against my will. But you know, I just love and I always want the best for you. And hopefully one day i get to make it right. I love you. 

Love, 

Your Dad.
