Kimora Lee Simmons has shared that she will not allow her daughters Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5, to wear revealing styles.
“I would not let my daughters show their midriff,” she said this week at the New York City launch of her new juniors line at JCPenney. It was even tough for her to see Ming in her halter dress. “That’s a lot for me,” she admitted.
“I feel like I’ve exposed my kids to a lot,” Kimora said of her parenting philosophy. “We do lead a very high-voltage life so we have to taper back in other ways.”
It’s an attitude that Kimora, 33, and her boyfriend, Djimon Honsou, 44, share. “He’s very protective of them,” she said.
Djimon certainly acted like a member of the family at the launch party at Hiro. He hugged Aoki, and quickly swept the girls away from the cameras while their mother answered questions on the red carpet.
Kimora and Djimon are also a strong team. “We help each other do everything,” Kimora said. “He’s very supportive.”
Djimon also helped Kimora heal after her divorce from mogul Russell Simmons, 50, the father of Ming and Aoki. “I know that women everywhere, especially with kids, understand what I’m saying. It’s difficult when you go through a break-up, and it’s heavenly to find a supportive system,” she said.
