  • Lance Gross talked the importance of inspiring the babies, wanting to be a good dad, and receiving a lot of attention from women who would love to help make that happen in the new Rolling Out.

    Why is being a role model to children so important to you?

    I grew up in Oakland, [Calif.], and I just remember how it was growing up there. I had my father, and he was an amazing man and an amazing role model, so I always wanted to mirror that … So when I got into this business, I told myself that I wanted to be somebody that little kids aspired to be like … I just think it’s real important — especially for young black males — because I look at the guidance that my father gave me. I had friends who didn’t have that growing up, and I see how they turned out compared to how I turned out, and it’s a big difference. So I think that I owe that to my father, because he played his part, he did what he was supposed to do, and he set a great example … I just want to keep continuing to set the example that my father set for me.

    Do you ever think about becoming a father so you can pass down all of the things that your father taught you?
