Fatherhood is probably one of the biggest events in any man's life.

There is solid proof that after becoming a mom, women are not the same person. It is an unavoidable fact that the whole journey to parenthood is life changing for men too.

Maybe you are worrying about how you are going to afford a baby, or simply the whole idea of fatherhood hasn't quite sunk in yet. But, as overwhelming as the emotions can get, one thing is for sure: a baby brings joy too.

On May 17, an overjoyed Trey Songz shared the happy news that he had become a first-time dad. The announcement was made through an Instagram post, with an image of his son Noah.
