Toni Braxton's Mother's Day show-off had her flaunting the impressive growth her sons have attained over the years as they posed with her standing tall and elegant.


Toni Braxton's new post on Instagram had fans wondering where the time went as she showed off her grown sons who both stood heads taller than her as she celebrated Mother's Day.

The heartwarming post included two photos of the star mom and her boys pulling at the heartstrings of admirers. The first photo presented Braxton looking cool as she rocked her bald cut and a smokey makeup look.

The singer donned a black shirt that matched her oldest son Denim's blacktop. He spiced up his outfit with a gold chain and a pendant designed with his initial.

His younger brother, Diezel, looked equally handsome, rocking a white sweatshirt and blue jeans while he wore his lengthy curls in sleek braids. Their star mom did not hold back her pride in the photos and wrote in her caption:

"Being your mother is the greatest gift of all @denimbraxton @diezel.braxton. Wishing my beautiful mother, @evelynbraxton...an amazing Mother's Day!"


Braxton, alongside many R&B legends, ruled the music scene in the '90s, but she considers motherhood to be her most outstanding achievement. The star had her sons in the early 2000s, and these days they are beginning to carve a niche for themselves.

The oldest is Denim, and his mom recently celebrated his high school graduation. He pretty much lives his best life like a trouble-free teenager, and even his aunt Tamar Braxton once gave him props for the young man he was becoming.


His younger brother, Diezel, is also beginning to build his spotlight career. He was born in 2003, but he was constantly in the news after their mom opened up about his autism diagnosis.

Braxton made it known that the youngster was diagnosed from childhood, and she documented his life to bring awareness to the public. The "Unbreak My Heart" crooner also put in tremendous efforts towards Autism Speaks.


Autism Speaks is an organization created to cater to those under the autism spectrum. However, when Diezel was eight years old, his mom shared that he was off the spectrum.

Although it was quite controversial to the public, Braxton relayed that many of her family members confirmed that Diezel was beginning to socialize and play with other kids.


Braxton welcomed her boys with her ex-husband, Keri Lewis, whom she married in 2001 and divorced in 2009. The pair were locked in child support issues for a long time, and all through, she experienced financial struggles.

Braxton filed a child support lawsuit against Lewis but later dropped it, as it was reported that the duo settled the child payment issues outside the courtroom.
