Fans Convince Toya Wright That It’s ‘Normal’ to Have Separation Anxiety: ‘It’s a Mommy Thing’

T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle” actress Toya Wright seems to be missing her 1-year-old daughter more than usually.

Wright expressed that she’s seemingly suffering from separation anxiety disorder, the feeling of worry “when faced with routine separations from a child” since heading to Miami, ostensibly on business. She took to Instagram on Friday and shared a photo of her toddler Reign Rushing pointing at a pregnant image of her. The child apparently recognized her mother’s face in the image and gravitated toward it.

Wright, who seemingly left the 1-year-old in the care of the child’s father, Robert “Red” Rushing, shared with fans that it was hard being separated from her daughter.

“I miss my baby already,” the 36-year-old mother wrote. “I swear I get separation anxiety every time I leave her 😩.”

Parents and fans following Wright said they could completely relate to how she was feeling.

“Man my baby 7 yrs old I still get anxiety lol,” one person commented underneath the star’s post. “I’ve felt this 😍♥️ it’s a mommy’s thing.”

Another added, “As moms, I think we all go through that! I completely understand how you feel ❤️.”

“That s–t is real I had it before. If doesn’t go away my son 8 I sometimes cry. It’s completely normal,” another fan wrote.

Wright welcomed baby Reign into the world in February 2018 after announcing that she and Rushing were expecting in September 2017. She’s also the mother of 20-year-old Reginae Carter, whose father is rapper Lil Wayne.

The mother of two and Rushing initially decided to keep her pregnancy a secret out of a desire to limit the scrutiny on the new life they were bringing into the world, although it seems matters haven’t always worked out that way.

“Honestly I have learned over the years to keep as much of my personal life as private as I can,” she told the Shade Room last year. “That being said, while I do not plan to hide her, I do plan to shield her from the negative energy that can often come from social media.”

When asked if she’d like to have more children, Wright said she wouldn’t mind having a son, but her two daughters are enough in the meantime.

“I would love to have a baby boy, but I think I am good with my two girls. Two is enough for me. I will just make sure she has lots of play dates,” said Wright.
