Brandy recently melted fans' hearts with an adorable Instagram post of her niece, Melody, and nephew, Epik, in a sweet embrace. The singer gushed over the toddlers, who her younger brother Ray J shares with Princess Love.
Acclaimed singer Brandy Norwood is a doting aunt to her brother, Raymond "Ray J" Norwood's two kids, Melody, 2, and Epik, 1, who are the perfect combination of their parents.
Ray J shares his two adorable kids with his wife, fellow "Love & Hip Hop" star, Princess Love. Recently, the "Piano Man" singer delighted her 4.8 million Instagram followers with a heart-melting snap of Melody and Epik.

MELODY AND EPIK'S CUTE SNAP
The photo captured Melody hugging Epik closely while flashing a huge endearing smile. The curly-haired toddler was clad in a blue T-shirt with "Paw Patrol" cartoon prints while Epik was pictured shirtless. Brandy captioned:
"Auntie loves you both so much."
The photo garnered attention from Brandy's fans who flooded her comments section with compliments about the two kids and how much they resemble their father, Ray J, and grandmother, Sonja Norwood.
One fan wrote, "They are SOO CUTE!!!! Reminds me of you and Ray J young," while another fan gushed, "They are adorable Brandy."
Brandy's post only shows how much she adores her niece and nephew, but she also cares deeply for their parents Ray J and Love, who have had a strained relationship over the years.
Last year, the Grammy-winning singer admitted that she loves seeing Ray J and Love together and wanted their relationship to work, although she knows that the pair often change their minds about each other.
BREAKUPS AND MAKE-UPS
Ray J and Love have made headlines several times over the years because of the back-and-forth nature of their relationship. Love was the first to file for divorce back in May 2020 but dismissed the filing a few months later.
Surprisingly, the "Sexy Can I" singer returned the favor and filed for divorce in September, a move that shocked everyone, including Love, who thought that they were still working on their relationship.
EXPANDING THE FAMILY
Despite the divorce proceedings, Ray J. and Love have been co-parenting their two children amicably. Love has even admitted that she would be open to having another child with the "One Wish" singer.
However, Love is adamant that the third child would not be the result of a romantic connection but rather a business transaction only.
