They grow up so fast.
Jhene Aiko's mini-me is getting closer and closer to looking almost exactly like her mother the older she gets. Namiko Love Browner officially turns 10-years-old today and Jhene shared a few cute words about her daughter on Instagram in light of the special day.
"Tears. all day, for the rest of my life. double digits means she'll be a teenager soon 😭i am so, so emo about it. omg," she wrote next to a selfie of her main love. "My silly, bossy little scorpio who taught me how to BOSS tf up ❤️ you will always be my baby even when you're towering over me (which is gonna happen any day now) 😭 k, im done. happy 10th birthday Nami."
Jhene had Namiko when she was just twenty years old, still taking vocal lessons and working at a vegan cafe.
"You know, it was a blessing," Jhene said of Namiko. "She really gave me the drive and the purpose to be like, ‘OK, you really have to get something done,” she said of her 9-year-old daughter Namiko. “At one point, I was like, 'I can only do one.' It was very hard to do both. Very stressful. I was like, ‘You know what? I’m just gonna go with it; quit this job and just go out on a whim and see if this music can be what supports us, ya know. And it turned out good.”
