“Growing Up Hip Hop” star Angela Simmons is living proof that motherhood isn’t always as glamorous as it’s cracked up to be.
Over the weekend, the reality star posted a photo of herself and her son Sutton Joseph from the Easter holiday, and, judging by the image, Simmons may have been on the verge of having a serious mom meltdown.
In the image, 2-year-old SJ appeared to be in tears while the 31-year-old mother posed for the camera with a serious mug on her face. She told fans that her and her toddler had a minor squabble about what he was going to wear for Easter. He apparently wanted to wear a yellow vest over his brown cardigan and pants set with a pair of sneakers that didn’t fit his feet.
Simmons clearly wasn’t feeling her son’s fashion choices and tried to convince him to put on a different set of shoes that actually fit his feet. Needless to say, all chaos apparently broke loose.
“Ooo Happy Easter He was in his incredible 2’s mood today,” Simmons wrote in her Instagram caption on Sunday. “Here’s our Easter picture lol . #RealLifeMomMode … ooo yea and he picked out his vest and yellow shoes he had on that didn’t fit. At least an hour to convince him to put on white chucks .”
Fans of the celeb could relate and commended her for showing the truth about motherhood.
“Real mom pic I it!! I remember them days thank you for showing this! Being a mom isn’t always fun but we love our little ones.”
“You’re face is an entire mood Life of a mother…these are precious moments he was so mad .”
“This is a real mom pic! I can relate! Lol, cute & frustrating Don’t worry all of us mother have at least one of these moments Angela. Thank you for showing the truth about being a mom.”
“ #mommoments lol when all you wanna do is get through the day but the kid had other plans this what being a real mother looks like.”
Simmons, the daughter of DJ Rev Run, welcomed her son SJ in September 2016 with her ex-fiancé Sutton Tennyson, who was shot to death in November 2018.
Although Simmons and Tennyson called off their engagement in December 2017, the two were still co-parenting their son despite their ongoing battle in court. In October, a few days before the 37-year-old’s death, the pair descended into a heated child support fight. Page Six, citing an unnamed source, reported last November that Simmons wanted more than $1,250 a month in child support. She also had received temporary custody of their child at the time due to an order of protection, claiming domestic violence against her ex-fiancé.
Although the “GUHH” star and Tennyson were in a legal dispute at the time of his passing, Simmons still mourned her former partner’s death.
Thank you for leaving behind my greatest gift,” the star wrote on Instagram Nov. 4 along with a photo of herself, Tennyson and their son. “I promise to hold SJ down in every way I promise,” she concluded, adding a heart emoji.
