Fantasia gushed about her niece in a new video showing the little girl practicing ballet moves to her music.
Fantasia has always made it clear that she's all about family, and she showed off her love for her niece, Haven Rose Barrino in a new video on Instagram.
The video showed the little girl dressed in a black outfit, practicing her ballet moves to her aunt's song as she looked at herself in the mirror. Fantasia wrote alongside the video:
"My niece is a doll."
Her followers joined her in gushing about her adorable niece. One person agreeing with the singer commented:
"Yes, she is."
While others wrote, "Cute," "Adorable," and "She's a doll."
Haven is the daughter of Fantasia's youngest brother Xavier Barrino, who almost died in 2017 after a fatal motorcycle crash.
At the time of the accident, the singer asked her fans and social media followers to pray for her brother to recover and get to walk again.
Shortly after the accident, the singer's older brother, Ricco Barrino, lost his son Tyquan, to multiple gunshot wounds in Greensboro, North Carolina. It was a trying time for Fantasia's family and the devastated aunt asked for prayers for her family.
The prayers seemed to have worked as the singer revealed while attending 2019 BET Award that Xavier will soon start walking again after several surgeries, and hours of physical therapy.
She dedicated her performance of "Enough" at the award show to him, and expressed her thanks for the support her fans showed her family.
"Enough" is one of the singles from Fantasia's upcoming album. The song debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart and made a lot of waves. Other songs in the collection include "PTSD," and "Holy Ghost."
The North Carolina native has had a successful music career since she won "American Idol" in 2004. Her first album, "Free Yourself" topped the charts, and the single, "Believe" hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list, and went platinum.
Fantasia is equally a proud mother of two children. After several failed relationships, she got married to the businessman, Kendall Taylor. She seems happy with where her career is, and how well her family is doing.
