A COLLAGE OF CUTENESS

In the photo collage, one of his daughters, Aaryn, wears a green Starbucks apron while, D'Essence, gleefully sits on a swing. The third daughter, whose identity remains unknown, strikes a pose in front of a black car.

His fourth child, whose is name is not known as well, is seen in a close-up selfie wearing shades with a multi-colored rim. Many fans admired him for being a doting father to his children.

One fan commented that his daughters are "beautiful." For a long time, Rickey has been private for the most part about the identities of his children as he wanted them to live a normal life like any other kids.

It seems Rickey and his family are back to normal six weeks after his 19-year-old daughter Aaryn got wounded in a shooting incident. She was shot during an alleged road rage incident in Houston.

He said that he always strived to influence his children to become the best they can be.

ENRAGED FATHER

The syndicated radio host expressed anger over the incident on social media, saying that gun violence in America had to stop. He expressed relief, though, that his daughter was already out of danger.

For her part, Aaryn said she was grateful to be alive after being caught in a crossfire and shot three times. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, she had to be alone in her hospital room while recuperating.

BEING A GOOD INFLUENCE

Rickey opened up about fatherhood in a 2018 interview. He said that he always strived to influence his children to become the best they can be. On what self-protection advice he gives to his kids, he said:

"Stay out of the line of fire. Stay at home."

The comedian, who was raised by his grandparents, also said that he hopes his kids will take to heart what he has taught them and apply the lessons when they raise their own children.

Unfortunately, his son Brandon once struggled with alcoholism. Brandon opened up about his journey to recovery in an episode on the TV One reality show, "Ricky Smiley For Real."
