Praise Mary Ella Simmons is DMX's daughter with Tashera Simmons and one of DMX's many children. She recently graduated high school, as seen in her mom's Instagram post.


DMX built his name as a rapper in the music industry. While he tasted success in his career, his family life suffered. He was married for 14 years before separating from his wife and the mother of his children.

His daughter, Praise Mary Ella Simmons, grew up to be a wonderful young woman alongside her brothers and mother. Although she leads a private life, her mom has shared glimpses.


Praise Mary Ella Simmons Comes from a Broken Family

Praise was born to Tashera Simmons and rapper DMX on April 18, 2005, around the same time they became an estranged couple. Her parents began their romance at 18 and spent the next two decades together.

However, after 14 years of marriage, they decided to call it quits after Praise's father had several arrests and drug-related issues while remaining unfaithful to her mother. Sadly, Praise's parents' turbulent marriage hit the news several times, including when her mom spoke up about the relationship.


Despite having separated parents, Praise was raised well and in a loving environment. During her 18th birthday, Praise's mom shared a sweet birthday tribute on Instagram, recalling the time the celebrant was born. Tashera wrote:

"18 years ago today! At approximately [5:00 a.m.] in the morning I laid my eyes on one of the most beautiful gifts, God could have ever given me [...] My best friend, my traveling partner, my confidant, my prayer partner [sic]."

Praise usually receives birthday posts from her mom. The year before, Tashera also shared a photo compilation of her daughter on Instagram, gushing that Praise grew up to be a wonderful young lady.


Praise Mary Ella Simmons Has a Private Instagram

Unfortunately, Praise's photos can only be seen on her mother's Instagram account. While she has two social media profiles, an old and a new one, they both remain private.

Praise graduated high school in June 2022, as shared in one of her mom's posts. The doting teenager looked beautiful in a red toga with matching red braids as she posed during the ceremony. Tashera couldn't contain her excitement and shared how proud she was of her daughter in the caption.

In the same month, Tashera shared photos of Praise's prom, where she wore a sparking black cocktail dress with beaded detail by the shoulders. Praise's dress also had a high-low tulle skirt that showed through the inner lining. Praise wore her black and red hair up and kept her accessories simple.


Praise Mary Ella Simmons Has Three Siblings

When she's not busy with schoolwork, Praise is a wonderful sister to her three siblings. Her brother, Xavier Simmons, is the eldest and turns 31 this year.

Her middle brother, Tacoma Simmons, is now 24 and was described as a "fighter" since birth by their mother. Her youngest brother, Sean, is now 21. Praise's mom often shares photos and videos of her children, especially during milestones and celebrations.

DMX had other children; one of them was allegedly actress Paige Hurd. However, Hurd revealed that DMX was not her dad, but her godfather.
