Lisa Raye McCoy’s granddaughter has the cutest smile ever and judging from the inscription on her T-shirt, the little girl seems to be a grandma’s girl.
Baby Bella Rae Jeune, who will turn two in December, looked elated in a blue T-shirt and white hat. The hat couldn’t hide Bella’s thick curls as they fell out in bangs across her forehead. Seriously, if you’re having a bad day, just look at Bella.
And her T-shirt inscription? The message read:
Earlier this year, the former “Single Ladies” star was spotted on a Farmers’ Market outing with Bella in tow. McCoy spent the day fawning over her grandbaby, not minding paparazzi cameras flashing away.
Dressed for the casual day-out in an all-white outfit, McCoy was pictured at one point holding on to Bella on a horse. The adorable tot didn’t look like she was interested though.
McCoy’s only child, Kai Morae Pace, gave birth to Bella on December 17, 2016, and took to Instagram to share the good news.
“My princess made her entrance into the world last night, and I couldn’t be happier,” the excited new mom gushed. It didn’t take too long for the harsher realities of motherhood to kick in for Pace though. She shared a photo of herself sleeping and wrote:
“This is currently my life. Wild hair, boob half way out, baby attached to me, trying to get a nap whenever I can! And she’s sooo been worth it.”
It’s no surprise that Pace was thrilled about being a mother despite the stress that comes with it. The young mom had a role model in her mother.
McCoy has always been open about her life as a mother, and in one of her many interviews, she confessed that putting her daughter on punishment made her physically sick.
She further revealed:
“We have a friendship and speak about anything. Having your kids trust you and be able to come to you about anything is important.”
And McCoy showed just how cool she was with her daughter when she threw the expectant mother a private but lavish baby shower in September 2016.
Essence reported that the event held at the suave “House of Macau” in L.A. and had guests like Kym Whitley and Elise Neal in attendance.
Now, Bella is almost two and, we’re sure, filling up on grandma’s love.
Meanwhile, McCoy recently broke up with her fiance, Anthony Bryant, who she met on ABC's dating show, "The Proposal," so little Bella and her sunshine smile should do the trick in case grandma is feeling low.
