Jhené Aiko And Her Daughter Namiko Love Are Two Peas In An Adorable Pod – Video

.

2020 is looking like it’ll be a standout year for singer Jhené Aiko, who recently released her third studio album Chilombo and will soon kick off her own sold-out tour.

Throughout her steadily growing career, being a devoted mother to her 11-year-old daughter Namiko Love continues to be her main focus. Aiko was only 20 years old when she welcomed her daughter with ex-boyfriend and singer O’Ryan.

“I never intended to have a baby so young,” Aiko told CR Fashion Book back in 2017, “but as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I was overwhelmed with a new focus and drive.

I knew I didn’t want a regular job. I wanted to provide a life for me and my daughter that was beyond myself.” Now that Namiko is old enough to travel with Aiko more frequently, this mommy-daughter duo are two peas in a pod. (Sidebar: Namiko’s also got an adorable voice just like her mom!) Check out the gallery of adorable moments between Jhené Aiko and her daughter Namiko below.

In an interview with Refinery29, Jhené revealed that her daughter has inspired her to be more confident. “My daughter doesn’t care what anyone thinks. I’ll ask her, ‘Are you sure you want to wear your hair like that today?’ She’ll respond, ‘Yeah, I don’t care,’ which I love. She puts me in my place a lot of times and shows me that she’s confident no matter what.”
