Businessman Kennedy Rapudo has poured out his frustrations after his son reportedly failed to show up for his 8th birthday celebrations.

In a social media post, the businessman who has made it a point of sharing his extravagant lifestyle on social media, opened up on the hurdles he has encountered in trying to be a present father in his son’s life.

The businessman recently won a court battle over co-parenting with his child’s mother and was eagerly looking forward to reuniting with his son on his special day.

However, his excitement turned into disappointment as his son was conspicuously absent.

“Not all absent dads are deadbeats, but just because we are not deadbeats doesn’t mean our hearts are metallic. I was eagerly looking forward to celebrating my son’s 8th birthday today! This would be the first long weekend to have him for a sleepover (after a lengthy court battle) and you should have felt the joy in our hearts. Unfortunately, the moment was ‘once again’ robbed from us because he was a no-show,” Rapudo expressed.

He went on to acknowledge the challenges that ‘many’ fathers face in their efforts to maintain a connection with their children and encouraged those in similar situations to persevere in their fight for their kids.

“To those who walk the often silent path of longing, who choose stability even when it means sacrifice, I see you. Not every missed moment defines our love; our hearts tell the stories our words can’t. Even in our absence, our love remains boundless. Every sacrifice, every tear, every missed celebration only amplifies the depth of our love. Keep fighting, keep believing, and most importantly, keep loving. Our children feel it, even from afar. #UnseenHeroes,” he shared.

Rapudo, in a heartfelt message to his son, wished him a happy 8th birthday and expressed his love, saying:

“To my son: Happy 8th birthday baby boy, I love you to the moon and back.”

Amber Ray, Rapudo’s current partner, joined the conversation to offer her support and reminded him of his qualities as a loving father.

She wrote, “You are a good father …… never forget that! 😘❤️❤️”

Kennedy Rapudo is a father of three – two from previous relationships and one with current partner, Amber Ray.
