Chris Brown album
Chris Brown named his seventh album, released in December 2015, after his daughter Royalty RCA

Since 2014, there has only been one little lady in Chris Brown's life and that is his daughter, Royalty. The Loyal singer has completely transformed his lifestyle since becoming a first-time father, leaving his notorious bad boy image firmly in the past. As Royalty celebrates her second birthday today (27 May 2016), IBTimes UK looks at how the toddler has reformed the most controversial figure in r'n'b.

When Brown, 27, confirmed that he had fathered a child following a brief romance with Nia Guzman, many questioned whether the Grammy-winning singer would step up to his responsibilities. The answer is yes as even in the midst of ongoing custody and child support battles with Guzman, Brown has ultimately proved himself to be quite the doting father.

With his One Hell Of A Nite tour currently making its way around Europe, it is not known how Brown will mark Royalty's second birthday. So, in celebration of the occasion, here are the sweetest things Brown has ever said about the toddler and fatherhood.

"She's the biggest part of my life. My daughter is wonderful, she's gorgeous, so I said, you know what, let me at least do the right things for her. I can't be perfect, but she's helping me to shape my decisions and my actual consciousness" – interview with Hot 97's Ebro In The Morning

"It's actually great. It's very humbling. You know, it's very calming. I think I was a lot, you know, rambunctious, very hyper as a kid but now seeing that 10 times over, my daughter's kinda like mellowing me out" – interview with On-Air With Ryan Seacrest

I just wanted to see her. I just wanted to be able to have that opportunity, as something personal to me. I'm not going to be upset, I'm not going to be mad. I have to be honest with myself and pick the priorities over the situation. I had to make my daughter my priority" – interview with Vibe magazine

"Oh baby girl you inspire me, give me the reason to keep on/ My baby, my Royalty, girl you're the lyrics to my song" – lyrics to Little More (Royalty)
