Vanessa Simmons has one dream for her daughter, and that is for little Ava to be happy. The ‘Project Runway: Threads’ host recently sat down with VIBE to talk about her career in fashion, and how she isn’t going to force her daughter to be a fashionista.


“I want her to discover herself,” said Vanessa. “I’m not going to push her in any one direction. I want her to discover herself and do whatever it is that makes her happy and pursue her interests.”

Although self-discovery is important, Vanessa did admit that auntie Angela is exposing little Ava to various styles. “Every time [Angela] comes to L.A. she’s bringing [Ava] a bag of clothing from some store. She has to stop by Nordstrom.”

See what else Vanessa had to say about her daughter and new job as ‘Project Runway’ host in this week’s version of ‘A Celebrity Baby Blog.’
