American singer Smokey Robinson's ex-wife, Claudette Rogers Robinson, paid tribute to their daughter Tamla Robinson as she celebrated her 49th birthday.
Smokey Robinson's ex-wife and Motown Records' first lady, Claudette Robinson, had every reason to celebrate as her loving daughter Tamla Robinson turned 49 on Tuesday.
The proud mom took to her Instagram page to share several pictures of herself and Tamla, showing their striking resemblance and incredible beauty.
In the caption to her post, Claudette wished Tamla a happy birthday and described her as a gorgeous, loving, smart, and thoughtful daughter. She also said Tamla is one of her greatest blessings.
Claudette's band, The Miracles by Claudette, also wished Tamla a happy birthday in three separate posts. In one of the posts, they shared a beautiful picture of the celebrant and her father, captioning it:
"Celebrating Smokey and Claudette Robinson's gorgeous daughter Tamla today!!! Wishing @indigobloo a very miraculous Birthday ??"
The post's caption ended with the band praying that Tamla would be gifted with life's biggest joys and never-ending bliss. In a second post, the band shared a picture of Tamla and wished her a day filled with happiness and a year filled with joy.
A third post showed a picture of Claudette, Tamla, and Tamla's daughter, Lyric, posing side by side, showing an incredible resemblance spanning three generations.
The legendary singer found himself in the news recently when his wrong pronunciation of the Jewish word, "Chanukah"...went viral on social media
Claudette and her former husband Smokey were members of Motown Records' The Miracles, with the latter being the vocal group's frontman. They married in 1959 and share a son, Berry Robinson, and daughter, Tamla.
Smokey filed for legal separation from Claudette after he discovered he had a child outside their marriage. He later filed for a divorce, which was finalized in 1986.
Following their divorce, the former couple also had legal battles over song rights though they later reached an agreement in principle to settle their dispute.
Smokey has lived an inspiring life and reflected on it in a chat with Closer Weekly, telling the online publication that if he had the chance to advise his younger self, he would tell him not to rush life but take things slow.
Smokey is a proud father of six beautiful daughters and cherishes his relationship with all of them. In 2017, he announced an annual holiday, Father-Daughter Day, which is held on the second Sunday of October.
The legendary singer found himself in the news recently when his wrong pronunciation of the Jewish word, "Chanukah," for a woman who used to live in the streets of Detroit, went viral on social media.
Jeff Jacobson wanted Smokey to greet his mom via Cameo as a gift for her. Robinson gladly obliged and wished the woman a happy Chanukah, pronouncing the word as "Cha-noo-ka" instead of "Hanukkah" and sparking funny reactions on Twitter.
