He has five children with three different women and is the informal stepfather of a sixth.
So while it can’t have been easy to orchestrate, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs rounded up his brood to pose for a family Christmas card.
His ‘baby mommas’ opted to sit out of shot, while the rapper and his children posed at the bottom of a winding black and white staircase.
Diddy and his ‘stepson’ Quincy, 22, as well as his biological sons Justin, 20, and Christian, 15, all wear classic black tuxedos.
The 44-year-old music mogul stands beside Justin on the stairs, while Quincy sits on the steps in front of them and Christian leans on the banister.
His three daughters, twins D’Lila and Jessie, and Chance, all seven, pose at the bottom of the stairs with Chance and one of the twins perched on the end of the banister.
The cute little girls all wear black dresses to match their brothers and father in their suave suits.
The record producer shared the sweet snapshot on his Instagram page on Thursday, along with the words ‘Happy Holidays! Love, The Combs Family.’
The day before he had posted a photo of himself with his three daughters, who all wore identical outfits.
‘Guess who just surprised me outside of the office!!! My day just got better,’ the excited father wrote.
Quincy, Christian, D’Lila and Jessie are all the children of Kim Porter, who Diddy had an off-relationship with, that ended in 2007.
That year, the star took legal responsibility of Chance, whose mother is his former lover Sarah Chapman.
Meanwhile, Justin is the son of Diddy’s high school sweetheart Misa Hylton-Brim.
Back in 2005, Misa sued Diddy for unpaid child support payments, leading a New York court ordering him to paying $250,000.
Despite their court battle, Misa admitted in an interview a few years ago she was on good terms with Diddy and her fellow ‘baby mothers’.
She told radio host Cherry Martinez’s Power105FM show: ‘Sarah is really sweet but Sarah and Kim don’t get along. I get along with everyone. With both of them. Kim and I go back for years now.
‘Sarah has been around as long as Kim, a lot of people don’t know that. Puffy was cheating on me with both of them.
‘This is over 15-16 years ago so we’ve all been around a long time. I joke around sometimes and say “They are like my sister-wives”.’
In 1999, Sean left Kim for Jennifer Lopez when Christian was a baby.
After his high-profile romance with J.Lo foundered in 2001, he resumed his romance with Kim in 2003.
Although Sean was publicly dating Kim, he had an affair with Sarah and fathered their daughter Chance – who was born five months before Kim gave birth to twins D’Lila and Jessie.
