Fans commended Henry for honoring Leigh on Mother’s Day despite their recent woes with each other.

“Now that’s a real man! I want y’all together so bad 😩and to have a daughter! 💕”

“Ryan has NEVER disrespected Rachel as far as her being the mother of his kids is concerned and I appreciate that 🙌🙌 cause it’s easy when you’re fighting to for those blows and he never not once. Real man.”

The former high school sweethearts have been off and on for years. They seemingly reconciled during the sixth season of “Black Ink Crew: Chicago,” but Leigh revealed it was all “tv love, land of make believe.” She also took a jab at the tattoo artist after a fan tried to make a pass at Henry. In response to the fan, Leigh said, “It’s ghetto, I don’t recommend.”

Henry was apparently unfazed by his ex-girlfriend’s shade and posted a picture of B2K singer Omarion Grandberry. Grandberry was crowned the “King of Unbothered” last year.
