"Our Tiny Guest"

Malika Haqq’s son, Ace Flores, is stealing hearts on his mom and aunt’s YouTube show, Side By Side. The youngster recently stopped by to sample a few dishes while promoting HelloFresh.

“Our tiny guest has one big appetite,” Malika said of her son. Ace sat in his high chair while watching his mom and aunt, Khadijah Haqq McCray, prepare a meal from the HelloFresh preparation program.


Ace is so adorable and handsome,” one YouTube fan said in response to the video. “Malika, you’re doing a wonderful job,” the social media follower continued. “Khadijah is Queen Auntie!!” Another fan wrote, “It’s so funny when babies just know they know more than adults, but they are smart really and hilarious. The food looked good.”

It was just the other week that Ace Flores commemorated his first birthday alongside family and friends. Malika and Ace’s father, O.T. Genasis, celebrated with a carnival in the backyard. Hot Dog On A Stick served food at the bash while other vendors contributed to the festivities in other ways.

“My baby, life really began for me a year ago today,” Malika wrote online in honor of her son’s first birthday. “You’re my heart outside of my body,” the celebrity mom said. “I choose you first every day and I’ve gained so much in having you.”

Malika went on to tell her son, “Being your mommy has made me so tired yet so happy. You’ve taught me true love, commitment, and why prayer is so important. Thank you for giving me purpose daily, strengthening me, maturing me, and most of all making me feel like I’m the most loved mama on this planet. You’re my greatest accomplishment and I’m so honored to raise such a smart, passionate, funny, bright light.”

Ace Flores celebrated his first birthday on March 14, 2021. He is Malika and O.T. Genasis’s only child together.
