Italia Anita Maria Smith, rap icon LL Cool J‘s 26-year-old daughter, is pregnant with her first child. Her proud mom, Simone Smith, (LL’s long-suffering wife) shares a private moment with her eldest daughter, who turns 27 on Jan. 3.
“You have been my best friend. You call me… can I just tell you my daughter calls me everyday,” says Simone, fighting back tears. “It’s just been a pleasure raising you,” she continues. “And I just absolutely love you to pieces…. And you look like me too!”
