American singer-songwriter Patti LaBelle's granddaughters looked like princesses as they posed holding flower bouquets in a recent Instagram post. 


On Friday, Patti LaBelle's granddaughters Gia Edwards and Leyla Edwards celebrated their mom Lona Edwards' birthday by gifting her beautiful flowers. 

In a post on Gia's Instagram page, Lona appreciated her adorable daughters for their gorgeous flowers and shared three pictures of them posing with the flower bouquets.

The first snap showed Gia and Leyla looking chic while posing with the flower bouquets. The sisters wore matching white tops, denim pants, and white sneakers and sat on black sofas on either side of a small circular wooden table. 

Gia sat on the edge of the sofa, holding a circular-shaped bouquet of blue flowers, while her younger sister sat on the couch holding a heart-shaped bouquet of red roses. A bouquet of white roses was on the circular table between the sisters. 


In the second picture, the siblings posed standing next to the table, which now had the red roses Leyla held atop the white roses. The girls held smartphones and flaunted their long black tresses as they posed. 

Gia sat on the edge of the sofa in the last snapshot, holding a bigger circular-shaped bouquet. Her sister posed next to the white roses on the table, while the heart-shaped bouquet of red roses was positioned on the floor and in front of the table. 

She revealed she loves to sing to her granddaughters, adding that the siblings love her 1975 megahit "Lady Marmalade."


In the post's caption, Lona thanked her daughters for giving her gorgeous flowers for her birthday. Many fans also joined in, wishing her a happy birthday. 

Besides Gia and Leyla's cuteness, the snapshot showed the sisters' fashionable characteristics with their chic matching outfits. Gia's fans would not be surprised by that as they have known her to be a mini-style star since she was a little girl. 


LaBelle is close to her granddaughters, who Lona shares with the legendary singer's son, Zuri Edwards. The iconic songstress has shared many of her moments with Gia and Leyla on social media. 

In a chat with People, she revealed she loves to sing to her granddaughters, adding that the siblings love her 1975 megahit "Lady Marmalade." 


LaBelle has been described as a diva by many people due to her impressive musical career. However, in an interview with The Guardian, she described herself as an OG, meaning original gangsta, a name many of her band and fans call her for her gang moves. 

Last December, LaBelle spoke to Oprah Daily's Hunter Harris and revealed her favorite song is "California Love" by the late Tupac Shakur. She said the song is appropriate for her, even is she is 76 years old.
