Fantasia Barrino and her daughter are celebrating Diane Barrino, the singer's mom—there was a party, and cute photos with the celebrant have surfaced.
Fantasia Barrino's mother, Diane, is celebrating her birthday, and the singer is not going to let the pandemic stop her from joining her mother in celebration. Fantasia took to her Instagram page to wish her mom a happy birthday earlier today.
She shared a gorgeous photo of the preacher, which featured her dressed in a black sleeveless top coupled with denim pants and classy black high heels. Diane was captured with a smile on her face and a vase full of different flowers in her hands.
She wore simple makeup, and for accessories, she went with dark shades, large hoop earrings, and a matching wristwatch. Fantasia's caption was a simple one, it read,
"My Birthday Girl, the party was hot, Happy Birthday Lady Diane."
Fans of the famous singer took to the comments section to join her in wishing Diane a happy birthday. Many noted the similarities between the two, and others commented on how gracefully she was aging. A fan gushed,
"Happy birthday to ur beautiful mom she hasn't aged @tasiasword love you."
Fantasia's daughter, Zion, also joined her mom in celebrating Diane—she posted a group photo that saw the celebrant surrounded by friends and well-wishers, all dressed in denim.
Fantasia never misses her mom's birthday.
Fantasia never misses her mom's birthday—last year, she posted a picture of the beautiful matriarch in honor of her birthday.
The picture featured Diane in a dark, classy gown with a v-shaped neckline and a sewn-in belt. Like this year, she had dark shades on, and her hair was plaited in a weave. Fantasia stood next to her in matching tops and bottoms with a beautiful red fedora hat. Happy birthday Diane!
Later on in August, she celebrated her daughter's 18th birthday. The singer shared a montage of pictures and videos of her daughter in a heartwarming birthday tribute.
In her captions, the proud mother regales her fans with a flashback of some of their best memories. She revealed how terrified she had been because of how young she was.
Fantasia also shared some childhood memories of Zion as a toddler—according to her, little Zion had often gotten in trouble with the family dog, Diva, who always made sure to get back at Zion for hitting her from time to time.
Fantasia got pregnant with Zion at 16—at the time, she had been in a dysfunctional relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Brandel Shouse.
Fantasia raised Zion alone, teaching her values and making sure she grows up into a model young woman—looking at Zion at 18, it's not farfetched to say Fantasia achieved her goals.
