A week after his former girlfriend and mother of three of his children was laid to rest, Sean “Diddy” Combs took to social media describe what it means to be a single parent after Kim Porter’s tragic and surprising death.

On Monday morning, the music mogul, with his 11-year-old twin daughters Jessie James and D’Lila riding in the back seat of the car, shared what he was doing on “Day 1” of being a mother and father to his children.

“Today the journey begins,” he says in the video.

“I’m now a part of the 6 a.m. crew. This is mommy-daddy,  daddy-mommy, checking in.”

“This daddy-mommy thing is beautiful. You just have to get up early in the morning…like real early.”

Diddy adds, “So we out here…All the single mother’s, y’all know what that is. Even some single father’s, you gotta step up and play both roles. The mother’s do it all the time.”

Take a look at the touching video:

Diddy has referred to Kim’s death as a “nightmare” he’s “been trying to wake up from.”
