Hundreds of kids along with celebrities packed The Waiting Room in Atlanta to help Lil Wayne’s daughter Reginae celebrate her 11th birthday, including Weezy F Baby himself, his mother Cita, singer Monica, reality TV stars Tiny and Toya, musician T-Pain and his mother, rapper Rasheeda and Ne-Yo’s mother, Loraine.

Wayne declined several interview requests, but friends and relatives shared their feelings about the pajama party that lasted an hour-and-a-half past closing time.

“Today meant a lot to me,” said Toya, aka Antonia Carter, of BET’s “Tiny and Toya” reality show, the highest-rated program on the network. They were also taping an episode for the second season during the party. “It is my daughter’s 11th birthday. I’m very excited. It was a great turnout. All her family and friends were here. Everybody showed out and I’m just excited to be able to put a smile on her face. That’s what it’s all about.”

Toya’s co-star, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, chimed in: “The party was the jam, you know? We balled out. It was off the chain.”

Cita Carter, Lil’ Wayne’s mother, also enjoyed entertaining partygoers with a mini-concert, featuring kid performances. “We had a nice time, had a little concert. My son, Lil’ Wayne, is here. We had a great time together. It was special because a lot of people came in from New Orleans. So it’s like family and … people from all over,” said Cita, who passed on the opportunity to speak on her son’s upcoming jail sentence. But she did share her pride in her son’s multiplatinum success. “He had a lot of talent coming up. I used to wonder why they used to knock on the door all the time and ask him [Wayne] to come out and rap. I’m proud of him, I love him. He’s my world.”

Faheem Rasheed Najm, better known as rapper-singer-songwriter-producer T-Pain, 24, summed up the sentiments of the evening when he said, “Tonight was good man, just a whole lot of love. I got up in the deejay booth; it was sweet,” he said, cranking up the kids’ party with new school and oldies but goodies. “And seeing little Wayne coming out, it was just great. Aw man, not to bring up the bad, but I had to support my dog before he go in that [jail], you know what I’m saying?”

The party doubled up as a going-away, send-off, for Lil Wayne who will spend a year in jail for gun possession conviction.
