Diana Ross' daughter Rhonda recently celebrated her birthday and one of the highlights of her day was the sweet surprise she got from her son Raif.


Birthdays are usually beautiful days to remember. The love and surprises one gets showered with are often amazing to see, and while it might come around once a year, the joy from that day lasts forever.

Sensational singer, Diana Ross' daughter, Rhonda was overwhelmed with love from friends and family on her birthday, but the highlight for her was the gift given to her by her son Raif.

Rhonda shared a picture of herself and Raif laughing and smiling for the camera as she held a plate in her other hand.

The mother-son duo looked adorable as their glistening white teeth were on display and it looked like they were just getting up for the morning. Rhonda explained further in her caption.


"August 14th Birthday mood! Woke up to Raif, bringing me breakfast in bed! Avocado toast and fruit! All my favorite things! He's a sweetheart."


Following Rhonda's post was a slew of comments from fans and followers who wished her a happy birthday. Speaking of Raif and Rhonda, someone said:

"Those 2 lovely smiles, I ? all you Ross folks.Lol.You can sincerely feel the love.???"

Some people commented that Raif's gift was thoughtful and that it was not about the amount spent but the thoughts accompanying the gift that mattered. The breakfast in bed from her adorable son was clearly the highlight of Rhonda's special day.


Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick is Rhonda's only child with her jazz musician husband, Rodney Kendrick. Raif is an adorable ten-year-old whom his mother adores a lot.

Being born into a famous family, Raif shows that he has the workings of a star as his presentation during the 2019 Grammys was astounding.


Rhonda is the first of five children belonging to Diana Ross. Her sisters include actress Tracee Ellis Ross and businesswoman Chudney. Her brothers are actor and film producer Ross Naess and Evan Ross.

Growing up and surrounded by such a large family, Rhonda and her mother got exceptionally close as they tend to bond over their love for music. And since both are performers, they also sing and tour together.

In a chat with Forbes, Rhonda revealed working alongside her mother was fun and exciting because her mother was an incredible entertainer.

With all the love the Ross clan has to give, it is no wonder that Raif knows how to melt the heart of his mother by giving her such a thoughtful treat.
