Fantasia Barrino Shares Never-Before-Seen Photos Of Her Daughter, Zion Quari Barrino, On Her 18th Birthday And Explains Why She Is Sad About The Big Milestone
Fantasia Barrino is going through a roller coaster of emotions as her stunning and bright daughter, Zion Quari Barrino, celebrates her 18th birthday.
In 2004, the world met Fantasia and her little girl as she took on on American Idol by storm. Over the years, fans of the talented singer got a glimpse of Miss Zion here and there.
As Fantasia celebrated the huge milestone with Zion, she shared several candid videos and photos with her supporters. The diva said she was happy, sad, and proud as she walked down memory lane.
She wrote in part: "Happy Birthday @onlyzion_ I can’t believe my Nugget is the Big 18th🎉 all week you have been reminding me that you’re about to be Legal and it only made me sad! Where did the time go Poo? You grew up to be such a Beautiful Young Lady. I remember the day my water broke-OMG!! It was the scariest feeling in the world. We lived in Winston Salem at the time, and Papa Joe had left the house for a second and so I called the ambulance. Zi, I was terrified because I was so young and I wanted to give you the world, but I didn’t know how I was going to do it."
She continued with: "I Love You Baby Girl ❤️ having a hard time with this 18 thing. Have a Blast tonight and remember always walk with class @onlyzion_."
One fan had this reaction: “I named her Zion Quari, and I already told her what the Zion means. It’s the place where the Disciples would go and pray. So I told her lil mama got to be good to deserve a name like that “ 😍💜 happy birthday pooh."
Another said: "I will never forget when you were signing on American Idol, and the camera went to her, and she had tears rolling cause she feels you singing your heart out for y’all to have a better life. ❤️❤️ Happy birthday Zion. 🎁🎉🎂"
This backer wrote: "I’ll never forget the day you won idol, my mom, sis and I screamed and jumped for joy because your story was so similar to my cousins @your1andonly_jai(everybody swear y’all look alike as her daughters name starts with a Z too lol) and you felt like a part of our family. Your only thought was your baby girl...they panned the camera to her and back to you, and you mouthed the words, “I did it for YOU baby.” Happy 18th Birthday to Zion."
Fantasia has also grown as a mother.
