Future’s mother has celebrated the rap star at his 40th birthday party by giving a heartfelt speech to those in attendance.
Filmed by somebody at the party, Future’s mom, Dr. Stephanie Jester, said in her speech, says: “I just wanna say happy birthday to my big boy. Happy 40th birthday. He will always be my big baby. No matter what. Every star, every sunshine, he always gonna be my big boy.
“So I speak today on blessings, peace, joy, happiness, new levels. I know there are new things and opportunities and possibilities that’s coming your way.”
She went on to thank people for attending Future’s birthday: “Thank everybody for coming out. I’m telling you, he couldn’t do this journey without y’all. So I always tell him, we don’t take it lightly at all. It’s the grace of God.”

Future recently lost a child support battle with former partner Brittni Mealy after his true income was revealed in court.
The rapper was sued last year by Mealy, who wanted more than the $3,000 per month he was providing in child support. The agreement was originally made in 2014.
In the proceedings, it was revealed that Future was making around $30,000 per month and his child support payments were upped to $5,000 every month.
Proceedings between Future and Mealy turned acrimonious in 2021 after Mealy accused the “Codeine Crazy” rapper of texting their son to say, “Your mother is a hoe.”
Mealy made the alleged text messages public, with Future denying that he sent it.
Mealy later responded on her Instagram Stories: “Definitely not cap! TF I got to lie for you said it definitely your # and his so stand on it and pipe down if you don’t want these recordings posted! On gawd you said it they need to cancel you. Cruelty to children!
“Haven’t seen him in 3 months but in the same state I can keep going! Got a refund on his school clothes today! Petty ’cause someone don’t wanna be sexually active with you and just want to co-parent!!”
She added: “I have been sooooo nice and calm I’m tired now!!! But I’m chill! I do not play about my kids! I’m a mother first and always go stand up for mine.”
The usually prolific Future has had a quieter 2023, having yet to release a full project despite ongoing teases regarding a collaborative album with Metro Boomin.
