The ecstatic mom of two took to her Instagram to upload a photo of the graduate clad in his graduation robe and hood.
After her second child was diagnosed with the developmental disorder, Toni blamed herself.
The young lad who looked dashing in the photo is Braxton’s first child from her 12-years marriage to ex-husband, Keri Lewis.
The 18-year-old is the oldest of the singer’s boys, with her youngest being Diezel, who in 2006, she announced he was no longer autistic.
Denim’s little brother, Diezel, made headlines at 13 when his mom, in a chat reported by Black Doctor, shared that her last born, who was diagnosed with autism when he was two years old, has been cured of the condition.
Braxton credited her son’s recovery to early diagnosis and access to appropriate educational and therapeutic resources.
The publication also shares that after her second child was diagnosed with the developmental disorder, Toni blamed herself and attributed the incident to a pregnancy she terminated while she and Keri Lewis were still dating.
The 52-year-old singer has since moved on from that premise and continued to shower her sons with love and support.
It would be recalled that the R&B singer was over the moon when Diezel, at 15 in 2018, signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models. According to Ebony, Wilhelmina is one of the most prominent modeling agencies in the world.
The following year, the mother-son duo graced the red carpet together at the sixth season premiere of their reality TV series, “Braxton Family Values,” but, Daily Mail reports that Denim was absent from the event.
Denim was born on December 2, 2001, according to his IMDB profile. while his brother’s reveals that he is a budding actor having starred in some movies, including “Chicken Girls” (2017), “Never Heard” (2018), and “Ant” (2019).
In a chat on “Live Kelly and Ryan,” the Maryland-born beauty shared that she is very supportive of her sons and their extremely different interests.
