Twan van Steenhoven, also known as rapper Big2 and part of the former hip-hop duo The Opposites, becomes father for the first time. The artist and his girlfriend are expecting a child.
"We're going to have a baby together," says Van Steenhoven (34) in conversation with Het Parool .
He did not have the desire to become a father for a long time. "Until my brother had a child. Then I thought: why didn't I do this four years ago? I suddenly feel young again, because soon I will be a young father. Now I'm still that old rapper."
The artist is already looking forward to cycling through Amsterdam with his child. "With your child on the bike, isn't that just #lifegoals?"
Opposites appear again on Saturday for the first time after four years
Van Steenhoven has been performing again on Saturday for four years with The Opposites, which also includes rapper Willem de Bruin. The duo can be seen at the Apple Juice festival.
The decision to stop The Opposites at the time, known for hits such as Dom, Lomp and Famous and Broodje Bakpao , came from Van Steenhoven. He and De Bruin both subsequently released solo material.
