And just like that, Monica’s baby girl is 10-years-old.
To ring in her daughter’s milestone birthday, the “Angel of Mine” singer penned a sweet tribute to Laiyah on Monday (September 4) via Instagram to highlight her big day, as reported by PEOPLE. In the post, the doting mom also shared snaps from their epic mother-daughter photoshoot.

“One never truly knows LOVE, until they’ve experienced YOU….. You’ve given me a decade of Joy, Compassion , Understanding & Love without Conditions,” she added in the caption.
