American singer Patti LaBelle's grandkids Gia and Leyla looked all shades gorgeous as they posed with their maternal grandma on her birthday.


Iconic American singer and actress Patti LaBelle is celebrated worldwide and deservedly so for her decorated career, which has spanned seven decades.

Proof of her incredible talent is that she is an inductee into the Grammy Hall of Fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the Apollo Theater Walk of Fame.

Away from the glitz and glam of a successful and fulfilling career, LaBelle is a mother of a son, Zuri Kye Edwards, who she shares with her ex-husband, Armstead Edwards.

She is also the grandmother of two beautiful granddaughters, Gia and Leyla Edwards, who Zuri shares with his beautiful wife, Lona Edwards. Gia and Leyla are two of the most adorable girls one can ever find. They showed their cuteness in a recent post on the former's Instagram page.


In the post, Gia shared pictures and videos showing how she and Leyla celebrated their maternal grandma's birthday in grand style. The first picture in the post showed the adorable sisters posing with their granny outdoors.

Gia and Leyla wore matching white dresses and posed on either side of their brown-haired grandma, who wore a black long-sleeved top and checkered pants. She also carried a yellow and brown Louis Vuitton bag.

She revealed that Leyla thinks she is a good cook and added that the 4-year-old will make a good cook.


The second picture showed Gia and Leyla posing with their lovely mom, who wore a yellow top and white pants. She carried a black bag. The photo also showed Gia and Leyla are expecting a sibling as Lona posed all smiles and put her hand on her growing baby bump.

A video showed the moment Gia and Leyla sang "Happy Birthday" to their grandma when her birthday cake arrived. Another video showed a closer view of the delicious-looking flower-themed birthday cake.


In the post's caption, Gia wished her and her sister's beautiful grandma a happy birthday and expressed their love for her. She also appreciated her for all she does for them.

Gia and Leyla also share an uncanny resemblance and close bond with their paternal grandma, LaBelle, who loves spending time with them. LaBelle has passed many of her qualities to her adorable granddaughters.


One of those traits is her love for music. In a chat with People, she revealed her granddaughters love singing her 1975 megahit, "Lady Marmalade," and have an affinity for the tune.

LaBelle has also passed her love for fashion down to her granddaughters, who show off their fashionista instincts with every given opportunity.

While growing up, Gia was a mini-style star as she showed up wearing designer outfits, shoes, and bags on several occasions. Besides passing her musical talents and love for fashion, there is nothing LaBelle loves as much as spending time with her young granddaughters.


Whenever Gia and Leyla visit their grandma, they tend to become rampant and run through her house, grabbing her jewelry and playing with everything they can find.

However, she said she does not mind them doing such things and added that she would let them make a fool of her on holidays.

During a recent interview with People, LaBelle said she is teaching her granddaughters how to cook. She revealed that Leyla thinks she is a good cook and added that the 4-year-old would make a good cook.

While teaching culinary skills to the six-year-old Gia and her sister, Leyla, LaBelle is learning one or two things about technology from them as they show her how to navigate her phone.

LaBelle feels more blessed than ever at 77, and given what she has achieved in her lifetime, she deserves nothing less than that.
