Zion Barrino is the spitting image of her mother in recent photos showcasing her maturity.
It seems like just yesterday when Fantasia Barrino’s daughter Zion Barrino joined her mother in red carpet events, an adorable little girl winning the hearts of many. Today, the 16-year-old is a head-turner whose year-old Instagram account reveals photos of her maturity.
One of Zion’s latest posts is a boomerang where she’s taking her video through a mirror revealing her slim, curvy figure dressed in a tube top and tight-fitting jeans. The young beauty had her hair neatly tied in a high bun as she showcased a full view of her body and made-up face.
Zion was just three years old when her mother, Fantasia, won the ‘American Idol’ competition in 2004. The singer had her when she was only 16 during her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Brandel Shouse.
The mother and daughter have an uncanny resemblance which is why Zion was made to portray her younger mother in the singer’s 2017 music video ‘When I Met You.’
Gushing about her daughter’s performance on the video, Fantasia revealed on Instagram,
“It was so beautiful to create this video with my first born Zion. You see that glow all over her? I’m a proud Mommy and can’t wait for her gifts to bless the world the way she blesses mine every single day.”
In 2014, Zion’s father filed for custody of her in addition to seeking visitation and child support. This despite his failure to provide for Zion since she was born. During a VH1 ‘Behind The Music’ episode, Fantasia revealed she was in an abusive relationship with Shouse shortly after Zion’s birth and they ultimately split in 2003.
Fantasia is also a mother to Dallas Xavier Barrino who was born in 2011. She announced her pregnancy during a charity concert event in Florida but did not divulge who the father was.
Today, the singer is married to businessman Kendall Taylor. The couple wed in July 2015.
