"The Neighborhood" star Tichina Arnold's daughter shows off her natural beauty in a series of selfies posted on Instagram.
Tichina Arnold's daughter, Alijah Kai, is growing up to be a beautiful young lady. While stepping out for a drive, she took a series of selfies trying to appreciate the sunlight and decided to post them on Instagram.
In the beautiful pictures, Alijah sports her naturally curly hair and had her skin glowing as the sun reflected on it. Her light brown eyes were also seen in the video she posted, and a lot of fans made sure to share their comments about how beautiful she is.
A HARDWORKING MOM
Alijah's mom, Tichina Arnold, is a proud single mother who works extremely hard for her daughter. Aside from being an actress and singer, she's also active in social development work, especially with her own "We Win Foundation" that focuses on lupus awareness.
On top of running her foundation, she juggled filming for her CBS sitcom, "The Neighborhood," which returned for a second season. Tichina stars alongside Cedric the Entertainer as the matriarch of the Johnson family.

A LOVE FOR ACTING
Through it all, the love for her work and her love for her daughter kept her going even amid difficult times in the industry. Acknowledging that times were rough at some points, she kept seeing it through and it's brought her to where she is now.
"I’ve always said, I’m not in the industry to be a star. Stars fall. I don’t want to be a star. I want to leave a legacy of good work because I respect what I do.”
RAISING HER DAUGHTER
When Arnold isn't busy with work, she's at home spending time with her daughter Alijah. Recently, she decided to do the difficult job of teaching her daughter how to drive, and it was a serious situation for both of them.
The actress recently shared a clip of her in the passenger seat of the car, while Alijah took the wheel. The "Martin" actress was quiet in the beginning, while she let Alijah learn and focus on the road.
GIVING HER DRIVING LESSONS
Although she kept her cool for most of the video, she mouthed the words "help me" to the camera, before panicking as her daughter shifted abruptly to the right. It turns out, that happened because Alijah was trying to fix her top.
Ultimately, it was an interesting and memorable lesson for both of them, and Alijah's starting to get a hang of it some more. As for Tichina, she'll always remember it as their "#DrivingMeCrazyLesson."
