Chris Brown: My daughter's made me 'mellow'

Chris Brown feels very "humbled" to have a daughter.

The 'Loyal' hitmaker is co-parenting his little girl, Royalty, with ex-lover Nia Guzman and insists he has become more "mellow" since becoming a father.

He said: "I have a co-parenting job that's pretty amazing but, you know, learning how to be a dad, especially learning how to take care of somebody else. I barely know how to brush my teeth in the morning! It's actually great. It's very humbling ... It's very calming.

"I think I was a lot (more) ... rambunctious, very hyper as a kid but, now seeing that 10 times over, my daughter's kinda, like, mellowing me out."

The 26-year-old singer also revealed his favourite time to spend with Royalty is around bedtime because it can be so "crazy".

He added to Ryan Seacrest: "That's the best part of being a dad, doing those little things. Bedtime is crazy for me 'cause I always was like... trying to avoid bedtime when I was a kid, like, 'No, mum, just 15 more minutes, please!'

"So I'll keep like the kids' channel on and turn it all the way low and turn all the lights out, and, you know, I'll lay in the bed with her and, like, rub her back until she actually falls asleep. But some nights, she's not having it. Like, she just is totally energetic."
