Toni Braxton gushed about her son's Best Young Actor award win on social media, and she's certainly one proud mom.
Toni Braxton took to Instagram to gush about how proud she is of her son, Diezel, for winning the Best Young Actor Award at the Oniros Film Awards for the movie, "Ant."
"Giving praise on this #SONday to my rising [star] @diezel.braxton! He's an award winner #Justlikemom."
The young actor commented on the post with a heart-shaped emoji, and others showered praises on the mother and son. One follower wrote,
"His hair is amazing. Very handsome young man."
"@tonibraxton, you must be so proud, congratulations @diezel.Braxton."
While a third wrote,
"Congratulations, Diez, amazing moms raise amazing kids."
The young actor turned 16 in April and days after his birthday, he accompanied Braxton to the premiere of her family reality show on WeTv, "Braxton Family Values" at West Hollywood Hotspot Doheny room.
Diezel looked handsome in a smoky skinny suit, and blue and white high-top sneakers, while his 7-time Grammy-winning mom stunned in a mini-white dress with a single sleeve, and nude stilettos.
Braxton shares the teenager with her ex-husband, Keri Lewis. The former couple equally has an older son, Denim, whom they welcomed in December 2001. The iconic singer is a doting mom, and her world revolves around her children.
In September, the R&B crooner shared a "SONday" snap with her oldest son, which she captioned,
"Couldn't let a #SONday go by without loving my #1 [heart-shaped and flower emoji."
Her fans commented on the photo, pointing out the resemblance between the two. One person wrote,
"Very handsome young man, he has your lips and complexion."
"Such a handsome young man; looks a lot like you,"
While a third commented,
"Queen and her knight! Beautiful genes."
Unlike his younger brother, Denim stayed away from the spotlight for a long time, but in 2018, he decided to sign with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency.
He currently plays basketball at Oaks Christian School and has the support of his parents to choose any career path for himself. Braxton's sons make her proud, and she couldn't be happier to be their mom.
