Tichina Arnold and her daughter, Alijah Kai Haggins, attended the Zombieland Double Tap premiere at Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California, on Thursday (October 10). The celebrity mom and her teen daughter were a matching pair at the screening.
Zombieland Double Tap is the story of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock who move to the American heartland to fight zombies. Who will win the battle for the land? You will, of course, have to wait until the film comes to public theaters to find out!
It may not be long before we see Alijah on the big screen. Tichina Arnold recently told the press about her daughter’s hopes to work in the entertainment industry someday.
“You let her tell it, she is the industry,” Arnold mused. “She’s danced in the Debbie Allen Dance Academy since she was three. She made some debut appearances on most of the shows I’ve been on,” Tichina explained.
“She’s been on Survivor’s Remorse, Everybody Hates Chris, and she’s been on the show, One on One,” the celebrity mom continued. “So since she was born she’s been an industry kid. I had thoughts of, ‘My daughter’s not going to be in the industry,’ but it’s almost like she couldn’t help it because she was surrounded by it.”
Being surrounded by the glitz and glamour does not come cheap. “I’ve been teaching Alijah that there’s a sacrifice you have to make,” Tichina revealed. “Every year I would have to go to summer school because I would miss classes doing theater and different shows. I made those sacrifices. It is a sacrifice, so I’m teaching her that now.”
Alijah is Tichina Arnold’s daughter with music producer Carvin Haggins. Zombieland Double Tap comes to theaters on October 18, 2019. Stay tuned for more celebrity kids news!
