Fantasia Barrino is a very proud mother, who watched her 17-year-old daughter, Zion Quari Barrino, graduate from high school with her father, Brandel Shouse.
The talented singer and American Idol winner posted a few pictures of her gorgeous daughter smiling from ear to ear as she posed with both parents.
The teenager wore a beautiful olive dress, silver robe, and matching cap as she hugged her mother and father.
Fantasia wrote this in the caption: “Zion❤️ You changed my Life, you made all things right and at the time when most thought it was the End-for me when I became pregnant. It was really the beginning of a Beautiful Journey and now Look at “you” look at that smile. #proudmom”
Fans are beyond proud of the mother/daughter duo and rightfully so. Fantasia dropped out of school in the ninth grade at 14 and gave birth to her daughter at the age of 17.
