Toni Braxton’s youngest son Diezel had fans gushing in the comments section after sharing a close-up photo showing his resemblance to his mom. The 18-year-old looked very handsome!
18-year-old Diezel Braxton is proving to social media fans that even as a teenager, he is a complete replica of his famous mom, 53-year-old singer Toni Braxton.
Taking to Instagram, Diezel shared an up-close picture of himself wrapped with a teal shawl. The image highlighted his distinct facial features, which he seemingly inherited from his mother.

The 18-year old’s full curly hair was pulled up into a punk hairstyle with some curly strands falling across his handsome face. His thick full eyebrows were also on full display.
Diezel posed, sporting a straight face while staring straight into the camera. He accompanied the lovely image with a simple caption reading:
“To infinity and beyond.”
Unsurprisingly, Diezel’s post garnered attention from several fans and followers who took to the comments section, gushing over how handsome he looked and his striking resemblance with Braxton.
One user called him a handsome prince, while another said he looked gorgeous. A third instagram user commented saying, the teenager looked just like his mom in the picture.
He was diagnosed with autism at only three years old.
Braxton welcomed Diezel in 2003 with her then-husband, Keri Lewis. In addition to him, the singer is also a mother to Denim, whom the couple welcomed in 2001.
While growing up with a famous mom comes with its own perks, Diezel and Denim have managed to make a name for themselves outside of their mom’s fame.
In January 2018, Braxton revealed that Denim had picked up an interest in sports and was fast becoming a super talented athlete. His younger brother, however, seemed to follow in their mom’s footsteps.
That same year, Diezel landed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models, the world’s leading modeling agency. He was only 15 at the time.
Ever since, Diezel has given fans a glimpse of his modeling career through social media, where he frequently shares pictures of himself and, sometimes, his beautiful family.
But while Diezel is leading a regular teenage life now, his childhood was a bit tough as he was diagnosed with autism at only three years old.
However, ten years after his diagnosis, Braxton revealed that he was no longer autistic and had stopped showing symptoms of the autism spectrum.
Despite the success and fame she has garnered, Braxton’s best role remains being a mom to her sons. And for her, there is nothing better than seeing Diezel and Denim live out their dreams!
