"Growing Up Hip Hop" star Angela Simmons showed off her new beau, boxer Daniel Jacobs in a cute snap and video of them cuddled up in an Instagram post.


Two years ago, Angela Simmons was hit with the tragic passing of her fiancé, Sutton Tennyson, with whom she has a son. Now, Simmons has found love again in the arms of boxing champion Daniel Jacobs.

The 32-year-old recently gave her Instagram fans and followers a sneak peek into their life as a couple in a recent post. She shared a photo of herself with her beau resting his head on a throw pillow on her lap.

The picture showed the love birds looking all cozy and relaxed with each other. A video came after the photo, showing the pair laughing uncontrollably.

The 32-year-old's social media supporters were initially surprised when she first unveiled her mystery man on her Instagram and confirmed that she was definitely back in the dating game.

She also shared a picture of herself with Jacobs, all dressed up for an event with a caption that read: "♥️TKO?"


Not only was her vibrant teal outfit stunning, but the revelation of her handsome partner was even more surprising. Her fans wondered who Jacobs was.

The boxer also shared a photo with Simmons on his own Instagram where both of them were wearing the same outfits in Simmons' shared photo and revealed that the event they attended was a wedding.

Simmons was caught in a highly publicized love triangle with rappers Bow Wow and Romeo Miller.


Jacobs, a Brooklyn-born boxer, started his journey in the ring in 2007 and has been in 39 fights since then, only losing three.

The boxer who goes by the nickname, Miracle Man, was almost forced out of his career in 2011 when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Luckily for him, he was able to overcome the illness and bounce back on his feet. He fought through a tumor on his spine that temporarily paralyzed him and went on to win a boxing title after his recovery.


Before Jacobs came into the picture, Simmons was not a stranger to dating in the public eye. For a while, the 32-year-old mom of one was caught in a highly publicized love triangle with rappers Bow Wow and Romeo Miller. 

According to Simmons in an interview with E!, the whole situation was simply blown out of proportion. She had only just found the strength to come out about her grief over her former fiance's death

Bow Wow also felt the same way Simmons did, claiming that they were still just friends despite the much more dramatic picture social media painted.

Simmons and her beau are clearly happy, and the mom of one finally seems to have moved on from grief with Jacobs by her side.
