We haven’t seen much of Monica Brown‘s little girl, Laiyah, since she was born last September. So imagine our excitement when the singer posted this adorable photo of her stylish mini loves (including sons Rocko, 8½, and Romelo, 6) on Instagram.

Taken by Atlanta-based photographer Derek Blanks, the professional pictures were a surprise Valentine’s Day gift for the mom-of-three’s husband, NBA player Shannon Brown.

“Thank you Derek for always capturing special moments for my family. You helped make today special… My hubby loved his surprise,” she wrote.

Laiyah’s dad was so pleased with his present, he shared a pic of his wife snuggling up to their daughter from the photoshoot with the caption: “Happy Valentine’s Day to my loves.”

sponge, that’s not an “opinion”, it’s just beyond rude! What is wrong with someone that they don’t see a beautiful family with boys who appear to be sweet, polite, well-cared for, and a baby girl that is adorable and they all look so happy. What a sweet looking family!

me- Some of them may have hit that button by accident (it’s easy to do, as I found out last night when I accidentally hit the “sad” button instead of the “love” button on a story!). 🙂
