Toni Braxton's model son, Diezel, recently shared a shirtless photo of himself. The 17-year-old looked super handsome with his thick and curly hair.
Singer Toni Braxton is a 52-year-old timeless beauty, and her children, Diezel Ky and Denim Cole seem to have gotten their good looks from their mother.
In a recent Instagram post by Diezel, the 17-year-old model struck a pose while laying on the grass with an unbuttoned denim jacket which showed off his bare chest.

The lovely photo saw Diezel sporting his thick curly hair that fell over his shoulder as he tried to maintain balance with his two hands against the ground.
The young man appeared to be taking in the outdoor atmosphere as he had his eyes shut with his mouth slightly parted. Diezel posted the photo alongside a caption that read:
"What's on my mind."
Shortly after sharing the image, fans took to the comment section where they left sweet notes for the teenager. One user wrote, "Please don't ever let anyone cut your hair. Be proud of your genetic makeup because of its stella and grade A."
Diezel's good looks not only got him signed by Wilhelmina Models, the world's leading modeling agency at 15, but it also makes him a perfect match to make public appearances alongside his mom.
Braxton shares Diezel and Denim with her ex-husband, Keri Lewis, whom she tied the knot with in 2001.
At the premiere of the sixth season of the Braxton family TV show, "Braxton Family Values," Diezel showed off his good looks while acting as his mother's date on the red carpet.
Sporting a grey suit and matching pants, Diezel pulled off a grown-up look with his unbuttoned jacket and a white undershirt, which was also unbuttoned.
In 2016, Toni reportedly revealed that Diezel, who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two, had been cured.
Braxton also revealed that her son was able to overcome the condition because he had an early diagnosis and also because of the help and support she got from a popular autism advocate, Suzanne Wright.
Earlier in 2006, Toni had opened up about the challenges she experienced in trying to get Diezel an earlier diagnosis. According to her, she had been dismissed by doctors even though she knew something wasn't right with her son.
