See 'Friends & Family Hustle' Star Tiny Harris' Tribute to Her Kids on National Daughter's Day
T.I.'s wife, Tiny Harris, recently celebrated her daughters with a series of photos on Instagram: "I had to show off my beauty queens!"
Since tying the knot in a lavish 2010 wedding ceremony, T.I. and Tiny Harris have been raising their blended family well, treating each other's children as their own.
Both artists had kids from previous relationships when they became man and wife, but that never stopped them from having one big happy family. Recently, the "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" star dedicated a post to her kids on Instagram.
CELEBRATING HER GIRLS
Tiny took to social media a post to pay tribute to her angels on National Daughter's Day, sharing a series of photos of her three daughters, Zonnique, Deyjah, and Heiress. She wrote:
"Thank you God for Blessing me with 3 amazing daughters to be proud of!"
The post included vacation photos, solos, and candid shots of the three daughters and Tiny. Several fans commented words of praise, including one who applauded their close relationship.
A BLENDED FAMILY
The actress is mom to Zonnique and stepmom to Deyjah, while Heiress is Tiny's daughter with T.I. The pair also share kids Messiah, Domani, King, and Major. The Harris family has their own reality show, "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle," which premiered in 2011 and ran for six seasons.
Zonnique, like her mom, is in a relationship with a rapper, Bandhunta Izzy.
In the series, T.I. and Tiny gave a glimpse of their family life and a look inside their romantic relationship. Despite their differences and the challenges that came along, the family-of-nine seemed to blend well and make things work.
THEIR HEARTBREAKING LOSS
Among the things that brought the family closer was the tragic passing of the celebrity couple's daughter, Lelah, in 2007. Tiny delivered Lelah three months early, which sadly resulted in a stillborn daughter.
The family's heartbreak at the time of her daughter's death allowed them to grow closer. Tiny tried to keep herself busy and surrounded by family and friends to keep her mind away from sadness.
Another tragedy came in 2019 when the rapper lost his sister, Precious Harris, in a horrific car accident. Despite the losses that happened, the Harris family stayed strong and supported each other.
ADVICE FROM MOM
Now that her children are older, they too have their own lives and relationships. Zonnique, like her mom, is in a relationship with a rapper, Bandhunta Izzy.
In an interview, the 24-year-old shared a few dating tips her mom gave, including deciding whether the relationship is worth fighting for until the end, or leaving before it gets worse.
Zonnique recalled her grandmother saying the same thing, noting that the man you choose to love should be the person you are willing to go through heaven and hell with, come what may.
Relationships in the entertainment industry often attract gossip and conflict, which is why it is essential to be strong through high waters. Luckily, things for Zonnique and her boyfriend have been going well.
