Flavor Flav publicly acknowledged the 3-year-old old son he fathered with a former manager. The rapper still has a long way to go before he catches up to Nick Cannon.

According to TMZ, the boy's name is Jordan and he will now bear his dad's surname.

The boy's paternal grandparents tell TMZ their daughter, Kate, used to be Flav's manager for a few years.

Flav, 63, reportedly denied the child's existence for 3 years until he recently had a change of heart.
