T.I. is talking for the first time about the birth of his son Major Harris.See Also:
In an MTV News exclusive, T.I. talks about assisting in the delivery room.
"[Reports] said he was 5 pounds and 15 ounces," Tip said of his newborn. "That was wrong. He was actually 7 pounds and 4 ounces. I was in the O.R. Hands-on. I was trying to help. ... Tiny's all right. She's a soldier."
Major Harris was welcomed into the world by T.I. and longtime companion and former member of Xscape Tameka "Tiny" Cottle. The pair suffered a tragic miscarriage last year and this was a concern going into Major's birth.
"It was a major concern, but I had to walk in faith," T.I. said. "Before it happens to you as a parent, it's never anything that you'd even consider..."
T.I. also discussed handling babysitting duties while on house arrest on federal weapons charges.
T.I. will release his new album "Paper Trail" in August.
