Diana Ross is one of the most successful singers of the rock and roll era. She's received several accolades, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama in 2016.

Besides that, the lead singer of the Supremes is a proud mother to Rhonda, Tracee Ellis, Chudney, Ross, and Evan. Born from different relationships she's had through the years, Diana is equally proud of all of them.

A PROUD MOM

The "When You Tell That You Love Me" singer once took to Instagram to state: "I have so much to be proud of, and my best examples are my children." Diana has a lot to be proud of, especially with her children being accomplished in their own right.

Her first child, Rhonda Ross Kendrick, followed in her footsteps by becoming an actress, singer, songwriter, and public speaker. For Diana's "In The Name of Love" tour in 2013, Rhonda was the opening act. She's shared the stage with her mom numerous times since then.

HER DAUGHTER TRACEE

Her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross was born in 1972. She was born Tracee Joy Silberstein and went on to become a model and actress.

Tracee studied theater at Brown University, and since then, has dominated the industry. She is best known for her role as Rainbow Johnson on "Black-ish," but she made her big-screen debut back in 1996 with "Far Harbor."

HER CHILDREN'S FATHERS

Diana shared Ross and Evan with the late Arne Naess, while she shares Rhonda, Tracee, and Chudney with Robert Ellis Silberstein. The singer was married to both men at different points in her life.

Diana and Arne were married from 1986 to 2000, while the singer was married to Robert from 1971 to 1977. Meanwhile, Robert isn't Rhonda's biological father.

Rhonda's biological father is Motown mogul Berry Gordy, whom Diana dated for several years before marrying Robert.

Despite raising Rhonda as his daughter, Robert reportedly felt resentment against her biological father. The music executive is said to have blamed Berry for the failure of his marriage to Diana.
