Andrea Kelly has much love for her kids. The reality star recently took a picture with her and ex-husband R. Kelly’s youngest daughter, Jaya, tweeting, “Me and my LOVE THANG #2” along with the pic.


Jaya recently identified herself as being transgendered. The teen told social media fans that her mother was completely supportive of her decision to transform into a boy. “[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much,'” Jaya wrote on her page. “She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.”

The teen’s older sister, Joann also accepted Jaya’s decision. “She told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me.”

Andrea and R. Kelly parent three kids together. The two divorced in 2009.
