"The Best Part Of Me"

Singer Monica is twinning with her daughter, Laiyah Brown, in new pictures. The celebrity mom shared candids from her latest photoshoot with her “mini-me.”


Everything from Monica and Laiyah’s hair to the mother and daughter’s outfits matched. The celebrity mom and her little one even had identical eyewear that made the shot even more significant.

“I know you must walk your own path but let my love be the light that guides you FOREVER,” Monica wrote to her daughter. “@laiyah, you and your brothers are the best part of me.”

Monica has leaned into her children’s love to get through the difficult parts of life. It was just a few months ago that the recording artist gleaned from the support of her kids while going through a very public divorce. Monica and her then-husband, Shannon Brown, were married for nearly ten years before calling it quits. Monica filed for marriage dissolution, which prompted her youngest son, Romelo, to ask if she could stop the proceedings once they were in motion.

“My 11-year-old asked me, ‘Can you stop divorce? Can you stop it?'” Monica shared during a 2019 interview with Sway In The Morning. “I asked him, ‘Did you ask me that because you were asked, or are you asking because it’s something you want to know?’ He said, ‘No, it’s something I want to know. Can you stop it, what does it mean, what does it take, what does it require?’ So I told him the truth.”

Honesty has caused Monica to build a strong bond with her kids. “I’m dedicated to my children and who they’re becoming,” the celebrity mom told her Instagram fans earlier this week. “They will always be encouraged and supported,” the singer said.

Laiyah is Monica’s daughter with Shannon Brown. Romelo and his older brother Rodney Jr. are Monica’s kids with Rodney “Rocko” Hill.
