For all of his faults when it comes to women (and there are many), one girl The Game seems to always do right by is his daughter. The rapper posted a photo on Instagram yesterday of his mini-me, California “Cali” Dream, holding a doll painted to look like a girl with vitiligo. In his caption, the father of three explained that he specifically picked that doll out for his baby girl because it reminded him of model Winnie Harlow, a woman he wants his daughter to learn from.

He wrote:

Short story: I was in Amsterdam I was gifted this doll by a very sweet woman “Ellen Brudet” who is a doll maker she wanted to make my daughter one of her dolls…. I had to pick how I wanted it out of the things I could’ve thought of… I had an idea to have her create one that favored one of my favorite people @winnieharlow (whom I’ve never met but ghost follow lol admire) because her strength, confidence perfect imperfections are the type of things I want to instill in my baby as well as explain to her that beauty is not based on others opinion of what others think a person may or may not look like physically but simply in God’s creations which we are all cut from. So I finished my tour couldn’t wait to get home give my daughter this doll… educate her on beauty how it comes from within.. I pull it out my backpack Cali says “Ooooh Daddy, it’s Winnie, I love her… she’s so cute” I’m like awwww damn… there goes my daddy teaching his daughter something moment lmaooo… she was already hip didn’t need to be put on… but that’s children these days, smarter than we think very appreciative.. Thank You again Ellen  @colouredgoodies for creating a moment for not only my child but the others your dolls have touched.

On Twitter, Winnie Harlow retweeted a couple of fans praising The Game for the lessons he’s attempting to instill in his daughter.
