Kevin Gates has shed a ton of weight since his release from prison in 2018—and apparently the motivation came from quite an interesting place.
Gates sat down with Men’s Health for a new interview published on Wednesday (Oct. 16) and opened up about his recent journey to being fit.
While answering a fan’s question about how he lost all the weight, he revealed that it was an awkward encounter with a friend’s baby that really set it off.
“One word—commitment,” Gates began. “But what really did it for me, I had my shirt off and I was holding my partner’s baby and his baby tried to suck my breast. I just was like, ‘I am too fucking fat and I’m a fat slob, I need to lose weight.’ That was the most embarrassing sh*t. I mean, sh*t, even though I’m a big gorilla, I still got feelings too! Man, that shit hurt my fucking feelings. I said, ‘I gotta lose some weight!'”
Motivation to workout comes from the most unexpected places, right?
