Gospel singer Kirk Franklin's daughter, Kennedy, took to Instagram to share multiple photos of herself, flaunting her short hair and striking resemblance to her mother, Tammy Collins. 


Kennedy Franklin looked to be in the photo-taking mood on Wednesday, with the 23-year-old sharing four adorable selfies of herself while indoors. 

In the pictures, Kennedy wore a green wooly top and looked to display her short hair that featured a parting in the middle and showed off different versions of her face.

In the first picture, she struck a model-like pose, with her hand on her hair while she smiled sweetly in the second photo, revealing her shiny white teeth. 

The youngster pouted in the third photo, while she gave a fierce yet beautiful pose in the last picture of the post. Kennedy's caption read

"And the category is: face." 


Kirk Franklin has been married to his wife, Tammy Collins, since 1996. The couple had been dating long before they tied the knot, and each had children from previous relationships before their marriage. 

While Franklin had a son, Kerrion, Collins also had a daughter, Carrington, whom the singer legally adopted later. The couple also shares two children, Kennedy and her brother, Caziah. 

The gospel singer became a father for the first time when he was just 17.


Franklin and Collins are one year from celebrating the silver jubilee anniversary of their marriage, and being married for so long in today's world is quite an achievement. 

Collins offered some tips in an Instagram post, where she said she is intentional about every move she makes regarding Franklin and loves to keep it spicy for him. The loving wife also said

"I love being his wife, but I'm also very intentional about staying his girlfriend! I pay attention to what makes him smile!"


Franklin and Collins' daughter, Carrington, got married in 2016, to her college sweetheart, Maxx Nakwaasah, a moment her parents were most proud of. Franklin walked Carrington down the aisle on her special day and also had a special dance with her.

Carrington and her husband are expecting their first child, a baby boy, with a proud Franklin making the announcement via an Instagram post, saying he was about to become a grandfather for the first time. 

The gospel singer became a father for the first time when he was just 17, an age when he still felt like a child himself. In a chat with Oprah Winfrey, he described that period as an incredibly difficult adjustment. 


According to the singer, his life and childhood were taken from him very early. However, after he became successful in his career, he was able to live out some of the moments he missed as a child and was still ready to have fun. 

Collins also admitted that her husband loved to have fun a lot and usually bought whatever his kids got, for himself.
