BRANDY'S BROTHER ISN'T LEFT OUT
Brandy's brother, Ray J, also took out time to celebrate his sister and fellow music star. On his Instagram page, Ray shared a cozy photo of brandy holding a newborn in her hands while she beautifully smiled at the camera.
Brandy mentioned that her parenting style involved being a friend first before being a mom.
Fans were excited in the comments as they joined the celebrity in celebrating his older sister. With the comments section filled with confetti emojis and birthday wishes, fans showed their love.
SY'RAI PREACHES SELF-LOVE
Sy'rai once made headlines after she took an exceptional step on an Instagram live video chat. In the live feed, she was with some girls who got quality advice about self-love.
During the conversation, Iman Smith used herself as an example while telling the girls about the issues of size and how one should not change due to pressure. According to her:
"Don't change because of what they say, change because you want to change. Don't ever let anybody else tell you who you are."
BRANDY IS A PROUD MAMA
Following the thoughtful words of Sy'rai on Instagram, her live video went viral, and her star mom couldn't help the swell of pride as she took to her Instagram page to gush over her bundle of joy.
Making it known that Sy'rai left her speechless, the "Aphrodisiac" crooner informed fans in her caption that she couldn't hold back her tears of joy. Fans joined her in appreciating Sy'rai as they commended the teenager in the comments.
Over the years, Brandy and her daughter have shown that they share a strong bond, and this might have made it easy for Sy'rai to be open-minded and strong-willed.
Once while speaking with "People," Brandy mentioned that her parenting style involved being a friend first before being a mom. According to her, this might seem odd, but it did help to breed healthy communication between her and her daughter.
