After reading some of the posts there are some truly judgmental people and that's just unfortunate. The good I see in some of the ill-spoken posts are about being "disappointed" in Dwight's character/behavior/whatever. Well there is only one Perfect Being and that's JESUS so those disappointed people will be truly happy when HE returns I know. Your disappointment stems from your desire to see Perfection in some manner. It's ok...JESUS will give you just what you're looking for...smiles. Now as far as illegitimae children - I wouldn't call them mistakes but decisions. Dwight and Royce made a decision about a situation they got into. This happens daily. Let's just hope others who are going through those decision making processes have love and support from family and friends. Dwight still has a platform to express his views on Christianity, protected or unprotected sex, abstinence, pre-marital sex, marriage, etc. He didn't lose his job because of what occurs so that's a good thing. As someone older than him I want the youner generation to be free to live and learn. Not to be labeled and hemmed up. You can have values and you can lose those values and you can gain them again. That's all a part of living. As a married Mother with a young son I just hope as a single Mother Royce will have love and support to get her through those "alone" nights and memories that may be shared without the child's father which will prob be emotionally tough. People love one another. The Bible doesn't say like one another (b/c there are some people I don't like) but to love one another. Be sweet.
If Royce doesn't have the "love and support" she will have the "Cha Ching" $$$$$ to make up for it. It's like hitting the lottery.

dwight and royce obviously were still seeing each other and im sure if the baby wasnt wanted he wouldve done all he could to pay her off not to keep the child. you must be the other girl or her friend. if so i suggest you or her enjoy it while it lasts because a babys mother will always have a bond with the father and knowing dwight he will probably end up marrying royce. keep hatin tho so you can get shut up just like the rest of them.
ALERT:
dwight howard groupies are now posting. beware of the jealous streak about to happen! lolol you are horrible. havent you noticed no 1 was paying attention to your posts? i decided to finally shut u up! go ahead and start making up new names and posting so you seem like you have others agreeing with u.

Baby's Momma hit the jackpot. I thought the dancers were not suppose to date the players? I guess that dancer didn't get the memo.

Eh, what's the big deal. Some guy fathers another kid out of wedlock. A metaphor for the entire nation, I'd say. Just get ready for the massive child support checks, plus the "support" you'll have to pay her. Smart, Dwight. Might want to throw in a pack of Trojans in the ol' gym bag next time.

I was reading where most people who beget children out of wedlock only have to pay child support not support to the mother of the child. Yea Dwight would be smart to carry condoms rather then believe that the women who tell him they are taking the pill see where that got him.

In my opinion, reguardless of what other people may think, Dwight Howard portrays himself as a wholesome guy that has Christian values. Now we find out that he is great at the first and not so great on the second (Christian values). I have to say that personally I am very disappointed not only in this great NBA player but more importantly in the exceptional character I thought Mr. Howard had. I know I would not have felt nearly as let down if I didn't find him to be someone I believe many people reguardless of age could admire. The fact of intentionally hiding and then denying this child implies he himself takes issues with these turn of events. While I understand his need for privacy, he chose a life in the NBA where he is a very public figure. There is no mention of his relationship with Royce or even his child. Since the world now knows of these events, a short statement from Dwight that these two people count in his world would be a welcome relief to those of us so disappointed by behavior. In the end I know he is only human but the mark of a great man is in the way he deals with the surprises that come into ones life.
I agree with John's post. As a Christian myself, I am not as disappointed with the fact that he "fell" as much as how he has handled it since. The Bible says "take heed lest ye fall." It is sad to say but there are VERY FEW men that could consistently pull a "Joseph" and run from temptation. I wish Dwight was one of those, but apparently he wasn't. I just hope at some point he addresses it more publicly. If you are a famous person and are going to wear your faith on your sleeve....which is certainly a Christian thing to do, then I believe you have to fess up to your mistakes publicly as well.

But please, to my fellow Christian men here, please let us not be judgemental to the point that we look down on Dwight. Can you really say with 100% certainty that you would never fall under any circumstance? It may be easy for us to say when we don't have the wealth...or good looks that would cause a stunning woman to flirt with us.

Take heed lest ye fall.....for all her were slain by her were strong men......

The only thing in which I am disappointed is Dwight's choice of women (if, in fact, the website previously posted is hers). Exactly how many scrolling photographs in bikinis or skimpy outfits are required to prove you have an attractive figure? It's all about the ego for this one--a dangerous sign for the future. Also, the writing in her blog was atrocious. All that talk about not being full of herself is contradicted by the self-aggrandizing content on the site. She seems the type to claim she doesn't care about anyone's status but secretly covets that her babydaddy has obtained a status that far exceeds what she ever would have obtained on her own. Hopefully she will either grow up very soon or Dwight's handlers will counsel him on how she should present herself now that she will be in the limelight. It comes with the territory, and she should expect to change the way she acts. In any event, best of luck, Dwight.
Touche'! I was pretty surprised by what I saw on her Web site and her photos have NOTHING to do with dancing. I understands Dwight's desire to keep his private life private, but he might want to share this desire with his son's mom. She's posted pictures and blogs and other commentary. It makes her seem pretty immature and rife with ulterior motives. Check her You Tube channel or her myspace ( www.myspace.com/roycesuperstar ). Obviously she has other aspirations.

Dwight still with other girlfriend not Royce, she may be the mother of his son, but that is all.
Sounds like she was hoping for a lot more then just child support.

Are you serious? So if she was an ugly old hag it would be okay... YOu don't know her so don't judge her. They laid together and had a kid together who is beautiful and a blessing to the both of them. And who the hell are you to judge? All this talk about her having to change is insane. Maybe that is the type of girl he likes. A nice good looking sexy as well as educated woman. Who might not have as much as Dwight but has a life of her own that she had before Dwight and the baby. Get a grip and stop hating. Royce Reed is a great woman and don't judge her. YOu should actually stay out of there business and find some of your own.

I don't give a damn about Dwight's baby! Who cares anyways. Life isn't about celebrity-isms. You people need to get over all the 'in-a-celebrity-business-drama ' it is so sickening. Let talk about real life. No dis-respect to Dwight, but I don't give a rats a#$ about that. i am so tired of the media and the 'thing' about celebrity life! What are you saying that a baby born to people that aren't celebrity aren't noteworthy to be a story. Right!!! Who cares about Dwight, Paris Hilton or any other air-head out there? Talk about how Dwight got his ego broke down by The Mighty Detroit Pistons. Did you see his face after the end of the game. It looked like his lost his baby to me! Haha!

Hopefully last post on this subject. The only reason a certain person posted here is because the rest of the world is ignoring her again yes I am talking about the slut Royce Reed.
I hope that her move to CA is sooner rather then later.
Apparently she plans to use that money that suppose to be for her son and use to get herself a career. I think the best place for her out west is in the skin flicks from what I read from her own site that is where her best acting is in. Considering all of the put downs she posted about Dwight and how bad in bed he is. So she most be some kind of expert.
Rant over this thread is dead and so very tired. Yes Royce tired about hearing about you like everyone else so begone. Bye, Bye.

Don't know if Dwight ever reads these silly blogs that spatter his character around as if its yesterdays garbage. Just wanted to say, I too was saddened when I heard the news, but then I realized he didn't do anything I hadn't done, only difference was I didn't get caught up in mine. I think that at the end of the day, we all have made mistakes, the important thing to do is be proactive and effect change for the future, and that goes for both parties. It's so disheartening to see how people have dragged Royce's name into the ground when she was just one of the parties involved. I empathize with her and plead with her: Put your son first. He needs his mother and though you are hurting in a way that we can only read about in blogs, I encourage you to turn the other cheek. There's a saying, if you fight, God won't. As for Dwight: pray, pray, and when you get up pray again. I went through a difficult situation very similar, and when I went through it, I said to the Lord that I had never done anything so horrible to deserve the pain. God will continue to mold and shape you through this, and it will be ok. His Word promises that it will work for the good. Either you trust Him or you don't. For both parties: You can not be effective acting as two seperate parents to one child. Each of you smiles when the baby smiles, and each heart aches when the baby cries. See, you already have more in common than you thought. I know it may feel impossible, but you can become friends. Maybe not yet, but it can be done, but not until some of the pain and resentment subsides, and each begins to forgive the other. In my situation, I was so hurt, and so angry, and so vindictive. Needless-to-say, it took a long time for me to get to a place with my x where we could share in our daughters rearing, and its made all the difference in the world, not to mention the peace that each of us have. It took time, it took prayer, it took trusting that one day it would get better, and it did. Each of you know Jesus, don't forget Him when you speak to the other. I'm not pretending to have all the answers, and I'm definitly not a holy roller, I just been to the bottom, so deep that I had no other choice but to call on Him. As the blogger before me stated, I hope this blog finally puts this thread to rest, but unlike the previous blogger, this is all positive. It's not necessary to belittle anyone, or attempt to humiliate anyone further. It is evident that each party has been through enough without outsiders added 2 cents for the whole world to read. Finally, each of you, surround yourself with loved ones, not friends (male or female) loved ones who truly know each of you. Push away from anything who isnt close, and just be still and listen. Acknowledge your pain, fears, and anger. Cry if you have to. And when you get up, decide that each of you will make a change. There's a sweet baby involved, who needs two parents that operate as one.
