Like mother like daughter! R&B singer Brandy recently underwent a stunning transformation in her body, and it now looks like her daughter Sy’rai Smith has done the same. The young woman made a smashing return to social media this week to reveal her new look and although she was gorgeous before, she’s even more stunning.
Sy’rai Smith was born in June of 2002 to Brandy and producer Robert “Big Bert” Smith. Around the time that she released the album, Full Moon, the singer revealed that she had been in a secret relationship with Smith that resulted in marriage and that she was pregnant.
Brandy’s journey while being pregnant with Sy’rai was documented for MTV’s audience on a program called “Special Delivery.” Shortly after giving birth, however, it was reported that the “marriage” between the “Bye BiPolar” singer and Smith was no more. Conflicting reports between both parties would soon arise, with Brandy stating that she was “not heartbroken” over their breakup, and Smith appearing on various media outlets stating that the pair were “never legally married” to begin with.
Brandy and her ex share joint custody of Sy’rai and through the years Brandy has shared how grateful she is to be her mother. In this social media age, the public has been able to watch her grow through her lens. Fans and supporters have noticed her struggles with weight over the years as well. In 2018, Sy’rai shared in an Instagram Live that she was not going to allow negativity to infiltrate her while she also offers advice to others who may be going through the same struggles that she was.
“I’m bigger than most kids. I can’t do anything about my past and I can’t wish that I was somebody else,” she said. “Being who you are should be more important than worrying about what you look like on the outside., because there can be a beautiful person in a beautiful body, but [on] the inside you can be so ugly. And like me, I’m not the skinniest, but if you really want to change, change because you want to change. Don’t change because other people are saying, ‘You’re a big girl, you’re fat, you’re this, you’re that.’ Don’t change because of what they say, change because you want to change.”
Smith added, “Don’t ever let anybody else tell you who you are. That’s the one thing that made me want to lose weight. It’s because I wanted to lose weight for myself. And don’t say that someone is going to treat you better because you’re skinnier. That’s not true. As long as you know who you are, nobody is going to care about your weight if you walk in that school with confidence.”
Wise words from a young teen! Sy’rai is now 19-years-old and came back to social media and the headlines in a big way… or smaller than big! Taking to TikTok with the simple caption “I’m Back”, she used Nicki Minaj’s “Did It On ‘Em” as the soundtrack of her reveal.
IM BACK….. #foryou♬ original sound – ꧁𝑄𝑢𝑒𝑒𝑛 𝐵𝑒𝑒꧂
Love to see it! Who also loved to see it was her mother, who publicly declared how proud she was of her daughter. She reposted the video of Sy’rai, who she says she is “Forever Inspired By”, and had this to share in the comments.
“Nobody really knows what she went through. So blessed and overjoyed to see you healthy and happy.”
