Have you ever imagined that someone randomly contacts you on social media and claims you to be the father of their child? Well, no one has ever had. For clear understanding, the illegitimate child is the one who is born before the parents are married or are a result of an extra-marital affair.
If we consider this meaning, then I guess it is a trend in Hollywood that is being practiced since years and is still going on. Thanks to social media that lets the world find out their child much earlier than even a celebrity does.
Well, I would say that the lack of self-control is hard to command when you have a lot many luxuries at your fingertips. So for all the people, be it actors, directors or musicians or a rapper like Bow Wow or player like Dwyane Wade who are shocked to find that they have a child must know that mistakes do occur and that too so heavily.
