Jonny Craig is Going to Be A Dad

Jonny Craig has announced in an emotional and very personal Instagram post that he is going to be a dad. Craig is best known as the former lead singer of bands Dance Gavin Dance, Emarose and Slaves, as well as the short-lived supergroup Isles and Glaciers. Since moving on as a solo artist, Craig has released two studio albums, two EPs and one live album.

Craig’s struggles with addiction and substance abuse have been widely publicized resulting in his departure the bands and multiple stints in rehab. According to his emotionally charged Instagram post he claims to have now been sober for the past year, and promises to love and provide his unborn child with everything he never received in life and prove that he can be the man that everyone wants him to be!

The Instagram post reads:

“well fuck i didnt know how to even start this post.. iv been trying to think for like almost 10 weeks.. my whole life in the back my mind i always wanted a child just didnt know when or even how i could take care of aomeone else when for years iv been searching my soul and trying to take care of myself.. this last year i thought my life and career was over but not because i was depressed living back in my dads guest room at 33.. it was because i was so scared to grow up so scared to ever wanna take the blinders off and understand life is all what and how you make it.. i always just thought oh my drug use? ill figure it out one day cause im gonna live forever.. see we as kids in this music scene esp ones with success think thats how it works we are invincable.. truth is we arent. so many lost ones and loved ones this year. not sure why i always wanted to die so bad when i had things that some people dream about from the moment they wake up till they sleep… this came so fast and when i met @sydsosmall i told her i dont know if im ever capable of loving anyone ever again and i just wanna go as slow as slow can go because im always getting shit for just letting love come when and how it comes. i love hard and deep. shit it took like 4 times of us meeting before we even fucked for the first time lololol this year being clean has been just as hard as being fucked up. im gaining weight.. im not good with ANY kind of emotions but when syd told me i broke down cause who wouldnt be scared? this isnt some fucking single dropping where i care about critics.. this is a child that i have to provide and love and give it all the things i feel i didnt have.. its mad scary.. but god typing this im crying.. i am going to love this baby and im gonna prove to be the man that all these people see that i have never been able too. im sorry if this was long and vent but im happy for once and i didnt try and look for it or force it but it came to me and i did this and im gonna be everything i needed in life to this small one. thanks for reading but this new year new me shit aint a joke this new years resolution its fucking real life and im in it! so post what you want but JC2.02020.”
