Fantasia's Grown Daughter Zion Flaunts Long Hair, Posing in All-Black Outfit near Fireplace
The 18-year-old daughter of American singer, Fantasia shows off her long black hair in a new post on her Instagram page.
On December 13, Fantasia's first child took to her Instagram page to put up a post of herself. The post contained two pictures. In one of the photographs, Zion, without any footwear on, is seated beside a fireplace looking straight ahead.
In the other picture, her legs are crossed with her bare feet on the ground as she turned toward the fireplace backing the camera. In both pictures, she looks pretty in her all-black outfit showing off her long black hair.
Zion turned 18 in August and her mother, Fantasia seems to be having a hard time believing that her baby girl is now legal. On the day after Zion's birthday, Fantasia took to her Instagram page to post a picture of Zion as a little girl. She captioned the post:
"I love you, baby girl. Having a hard time with this 18 thing, have a blast tonight and remember always walk with class."
Fantasia had a lot to say about Zion as she captioned some of the post with a very long write-up.
"Zion, You changed my life, you made all things right and at the time when most thought it was the End-for me when I became pregnant."
The adorable little Zion, who used to walk the red carpet with her mom and follow her on stage while she was a contestant on American Idol, is not a kid anymore. Earlier this year, Zion graduated from high school.
Her proud mom took to her Instagram page to post a picture showing how proud she was of Zion. She also posted another photo of Zion and some friends with the caption:
"Zion, You changed my life, you made all things right and at the time when most thought it was the End-for me when I became pregnant. It was really the beginning of a Beautiful Journey, and now Look at 'you' look at that smile."
At the age of 16, Fantasia dropped out of high school. She decided to follow her dreams as a singer to enable her to provide a better life for herself and her daughter.

Happy Birthday @onlyzion_ I can’t believe my Nugget is the Big 18th🎉 all week you have been reminding me that you’re about to be Legal and it only made me sad! Where did the time go Poo? You grew up to be such a Beautiful Young Lady. I remember the day my water broke-OMG!! It was the scariest feeling in the world. We lived in Winston Salem at the time and Papa Joe had left the house for a second and so I called the ambulance. Zi, I was terrified because I was so young and I wanted to give you the world but I didn’t know how I was going to do it. You came a lil early and at the time I was thinking it was because you were either nosey (lol) or you heard all my cry’s and felt you needed to come on out and protect me. Now I see it was the protection part and still to this day you go hard for Mommy! I’ll never forget when we had our own lil apartment, just me and you in Farmington. I’ll never forget when you stuck a bead up your nose and came running to me scared. I’ll never forget I had just dressed you so pretty in some fresh white Reebok Classics and you went and stood in the Toilet. Man!! I have so many stories🤗❤️😂 last one Zion, after IDOL ( We had a Dog named Diva) and Zion would hit her from time to time, she was 3 years old, and Diva would always get her butt right back. When she did, Zion would run in the room crying, “Diva Said, Diva Said”. I told her DIVA CANT TALK ZION!! 😂 (she swore up and down she could) I Miss those days but I’m So Proud Of the young Lady you’ve become. August 8-8-01 was a Perfect Day🎂🎈🎉🤗 Now I want you to Go be Great for Mama and know I’ll move Many Mountains For You Baby Girl👊🏾 it’s a Real Ones Birthday Help me celebrate the one who changed my Life @onlyzion_
The American singer and her baby daddy, Brandel Shouse, split years ago. Brandel and Fantasia were high school sweethearts, but he was abusive.
Although now, they seem to have made peace and moved on with co-parenting their daughter, the former couple once had a clash over the custody of their child.
In 2014, it was reported that Brandel sued for custody, claiming that he was a better parent and should be made the primary parent of the then 13-year-old Zion. Fantasia could not disagree more.
She said Brandel never cared for or built a relationship with his daughter, and he was nothing but a deadbeat sperm donor. She also said he had never even chipped in financially and so she decided to claim for child support.
