Diezel Braxton, the model son of Toni Braxton, took to Instagram to share some photos honoring his brother, Denim, on his 17th birthday.
In the first one, both young men appeared posing next to their mother in black outfits. Diezel’s curly hair and infectious smile were the highlights of the post. Toni was wearing a semi-see-through dress that made her look gorgeous, too.
For the caption, Diezel wished Denim a happy birthday and pointed out that he wouldn’t know what to do without him as his brother was his “#1 inspiration.” In the second post that Diezel shared, the three of them were showcasing their best clothes.
While the young men put on black and white suit and ties, Toni wowed everybody in a Royal-like dress with gloves included. Diezel and Denim were posing behind their mother with a very serious face.
It is not the first time that Diezel, 15, made headlines. When he was only two years old, doctors diagnosed him with autism but fortunately, in 2016, Toni revealed that he no longer exhibited symptoms of the autism spectrum.
Earlier this year, Toni proudly announced that her youngest son signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models, one of the world’s most important modeling agency. “Congrats Diezy on signing to Wilhelmina Modeling Agency!!!” wrote the excited mother in the caption.
Diezel was not the only member of the family who congratulated Denim as Toni did it, too, with a touching video. “Can’t believe my 9month old son [Denim] is turning 17 today…,” Toni wrote to accompany the sweet video of the mother cradling her crying son. His head rests on her shoulders as Toni tries to comfort him through his tears.
At the moment, Toni is engaged to longtime friend and fiancé Birdman. However, she admitted having trouble setting a date since their engagement in February. To make things worse, she just recently lost her engagement ring during a flight from JFK to LAX.
Toni assumed someone just “borrowed” her ring along with other pieces of jewelry that were in the bag she lost and recovered during the flight. The search for the ring is still ongoing, and Toni is optimistic she’ll find it.
