For his niece's big day, the "Love & Hip Hop" personality posted several photos showing her growth. The first photo was a candid snapshot of Sy'rai looking gorgeous in perfect makeup. The next slide was a throwback photo of her blowing a kiss at the camera. Ray J gleefully captioned his post:

"Happy Birthday to the best vice in the whole world!!! @Syraismith, you have grown up to be such a smart, intelligent, and talented young adult!..."


The star uncle spelled out his pride while declaring his love for Smith as well as making a special promise to be there for her at "anytime." The R&B singer then asked fans to join him in celebrating Sy'rai Smith, who is Brandy Norwood's beloved daughter.



Smith's admirers trooped to the comment section as they obliged Ray J's request and shared their heartening thoughts and well-wishes. Someone wrote: "Happy 18th birthday @Syraismith and many many more to come…"

A close source revealed at the time that Norwood and Smith would remain friends.

A second fan expressed their delightful surprise: "cannot believe it's been 18 years! Happy Birthday." Many more followers took out time to commemorate the young adult's day and share their birthday wishes.



It is safe to say that Sy'rai Smith holds a special place in her celebrity uncle's heart. During her sixteenth birthday, the young girl was granted a sweet wish, which could be any teenage girl's dream!

Ray J and his wife, Princess Love, pulled all the stops as they treated Smith to a luxury visit to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Sy'rai had a fun-filled day shopping for designer wears as she was pictured holding some bags from Gucci and Balenciaga.



Once while Brandy was celebrating Sy'rai Smith's 15th birthday, she shared an emotional message on Instagram. The R&B icon let out her feelings as she called the teenager, "the greatest love of all."

Brandy Norwood became a mom in June 2002 with her then-lover, Robert Smith. The two went their separate ways a year later.

A close source revealed at the time that Norwood and Smith would remain friends and jointly raise their child. As time went on, fans witnessed a pleasing mother-daughter bond between Brandy and her daughter.
