OUTKAST star Andre Benjamin is keen to be a better dad to his young son Seven, but he only gets to see the five-year-old twice a month.

The MS JACKSON hitmaker, aka ANDRE 3000, insists he "needs a little more practice" at being a dad to his son by ex-lover Erykah Badu.

He says, "I get sad that another man is seeing my child more than I do, but I'm not jealous. I'm happy for Erykah."

Badu is now dating another R+B hunk, Common, and Benjamin hopes she's found lasting love with him.

He adds, "I think she's a great person but I don't think she's the one for me, and I don't think I'm the one for her."
