Music icon Pattie LaBelle's granddaughter, Gia Edwards, recently turned a year older, and pictures shared on social media showed her looking like LaBelle.
Pattie LaBelle's little granddaughter, Gia Edwards, is growing up fast and looking more like her fabulous grandma. New photos on Instagram showed that she recently turned 6 years old.
In a photo shared on Gia's Instagram story, she looked radiant, showing off her glowing face and sweet smile while she posed for a selfie with her mom.
The image was a repost from her mom, Lona's Instagram story, with sweet words written in honor of her sixth birthday. The doting mom also added well-wishes in the post.
Many fans would reckon that Gia and her little sister, Leyla, have formed an adorable trio with their glamorous grandma, who enjoys basking in her free time with them.
Once in an interview, the doting grandma made it known that she loved spending the holidays with her little girls. The award-winning singer shared that her holidays changed after she welcomed her granddaughters.
The music star noted that having the tots around was a delight, and she did not mind them playing around, breaking things, even playing with her jewelry.
The songstress noted that she already pictured the girls becoming show business babies and going up to stages with her.
While Gia has an iconic role model in LaBelle, in case she preferred the showbiz world as she grows up, she is already picking cues from the singer with her fashion choices.
Many photos of the baby girl have been shared on the internet, where she flaunted tasteful clothing items, including top-notch street styles and traditional Hindi wears, among other ranges of outfits.
Besides their grandma's sense of style, it seems Gia and Leyla have tapped into her musical prowess as well. As of 2019, LaBelle, 76, delightedly shared in an interview that Gia and Leyla took a liking to her 1975 hit track, "Lady Marmalade."
She gushed about how Gia already knew the lyrics and would often enjoy sing-along sessions with her. Leyla, who was still in diapers, would happily bop her head along to the beat.
The songstress noted that she already pictured the girls becoming show business babies and going up to stages with her. She, however, pointed out that choosing a showbiz career will be up to the girls.
Through it all, LaBelle relayed that she was more than ready to give them the mentorship required, also teaching them to be kind, sharing, and supportive of each other.
