‘That’s Right’: Angela Simmons’ Fans Pile on the Praise for Raising Son ‘to be a King’

Angela Simmons is continuing to brave life as a single mom in the year following the death of her ex-fiancé Sutton Tennyson, and her fans are praising her efforts.

The “Growing Up Hip Hop” star posted a series of photos to her Instagram page Sunday that saw her and her young son, SJ, dressed to the nines. Simmons wore a black vest and matching slacks with high heels and a hot pink blazer. Meanwhile, her 3-year-old child wore a royal blue suit with a black bow tie and black shoes. The duo prepared to attend the wedding of Simmons’ younger brother, JoJo Simmons.

“Raising a young king 👑 My brother is getting married today 🥰😁☺️

The image instantly led fans to pour out with supportive remarks about how well Simmons was raising her young son.

“Your doing a great job hun”

“He is soo adorable ❤️❤️❤️, that’s right raise him to be a KING👑”

“Look like u doin a good job wit ya lil man. I salute u💪🏽”

“He looks soooo cute! Keep up the GREAT work!”

“Thank you for that, not raising a tug @angelasimmons…..handsome Lil guy!”

“You’re doing a wonderful job! BTW your hair has really grown beautifully 😍”

“Mommy & Son ❤️🙏❤️”

Simmons has been raising SJ on her own following the shooting death of her former betrothed in November 2018. In a candid Instagram post she made in the wake of Tennyson’s death, the reality star disclosed just how hard his passing had been on her.

“Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” she said in the caption of a series of family photos. “I’m hurting . I’m numb. Thank you for the out pouring of love everyone . I cant believe I’m even saying Rest In Peace Sutton . I promise to hold SJ down in every way I promise ❣️”

Sutton had been shot and killed in the driveway of his Atlanta home. An autopsy report released in February revealed he was hit 13 times in the arm, chest, stomach and legs. Police said he had gotten into a tense argument with the suspected shooter, who was later charged with murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Yet while Simmons is now a single mom, her family has rallied to help her. That includes newlywed JoJo, who took his nephew to get a haircut in December 2018, filling in the void Tennyson’s death left.

“Took my nephew to the shop today. We gon do this every 2 weeks✂️” read the caption “Growing Up Hip Hop: New York” star’s Instagram post at the time.
