"So Many Tears Of Joy"

DMX’s ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, shared a touching message on her son’s 19th birthday. Sean Simmons rang in his birthday a bit differently this year due to the absence of his legendary dad.


“Good morning beautiful people,” Tashera began her message. “Today is such a special day for me and my family,” the celebrity mom said. “Nineteen years ago today my third king was born,” Tashera shared. “Thank you Jesus for allowing my son another amazing year of life with us,” the doting mom exclaimed.

“So many tears of joy when I speak about my Sean,” Tashera said of her son. “Your heart. your charisma. your intelligence. Just to name a few melts my heart,” she added. “I am soooooo proud of the young strong man you are growing into! So respectable.”

Sean Simmons was one of DMX’s fifteen kids who took the stage at his father’s memorial service a few weeks ago. The young adult helped fulfill his father’s desire to have all of his kids in the same room. DMX was not physically present for the reunion because of his untimely passing. The rapper, nevertheless, was sure to create memories with his kids, which included his attendance at Sean’s eighteenth birthday last year.

“This was us,” Tashera Simmons shared in reference to Sean’s birthday bash last year. “Always so much love and laughter, when In each other’s presence,” she continued. “Birthdays and Holidays will be hard, but the beautiful memories you left us will forever fill our hearts and soul,” Tashera wrote to DMX. “Gone but never ever forgetting!”

Tashera went on to celebrate Sean’s nineteenth birthday earlier this week. “One of the traits I love about you is how you chase God and know him,” the doting mom wrote to her son. “You bring such great balance to our family with your big and funny personality,” Tashera added. “You are so loved! Continue to be great and do great things! God has so much amazing things lined up for you! Continue to make us proud son. Mommy loves you more than I can ever express in words.”
