“Three days before she passed, she wasn’t feeling well,” Diddy, 49, told Essence in the May issue. “She had the flu, and she sent the kids over to my house so they wouldn’t get sick.”

Then the dad of six revealed Kim’s last words. “One night I was checking on her, and she was like, ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’ She actually said that to me before she died,” he recalled.

After her death on November 15, Diddy remembered their conversation and it helped him set aside his own grief in order to stay strong and take care of their children. “I jumped into mommy mode,” he explained. “I sent people in every direction to try to make sure the kids would not hear about it on social media or the news.”

“I had to get to the girls’ twins Jessie and D’Lila school and find Kim’s son Quincy, who was on set in Atlanta. Son Christian was on a plane, and I had his phone disconnected so he wouldn’t read it in the air,” he recalled.

“On some level,” the Bad Boy mogul said, “I knew she was training me for this. I knew that I had to be ready to do whatever I was supposed to do if something like this ever happened.”

Since her death, Diddy explained that he’s taken her last words to heart and become a more hands-on and involved parent to all six of his children. “Before this, I was a part-time father, you know?” he said. “My family was always first, but there are countless times when I chose work over everything else.”

“But every day I can hear her telling me to go and spend some time with the kids and make sure everybody’s all right, like she would do,” he continued. “I’m just a lot more present, and, most important, now my kids come before anything else in my life.”

It’s not just Diddy who has changed in the wake of Kim’s death. “My entire family is doing really well because her passing has changed us and made us love each other more,” he shared. “I’m happy to say that, because at first I really didn’t know how we’d be doing.”
