Russell Simmons Is Happy With The Way His Daughters Are Being Raised

Music mogul Russell Simmons wishes nothing but happiness for his ex-wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, and their daughters, Ming and Aoki.  Since they divorced, Kimora has been committed to actor Djimon Hounsou and the couple share a son, Kenzo. 

I always say to Kimora, ‘How lucky are you that he’s such a sweet man?’ And my kids adore him, and to me that’s the most important thing. They’re very special in the way they’re raising my children.”

Russell revealed that his daughters’ attachment to their baby brother is strong:

“I had Ming and Aoki for the last week in Miami, and they don’t like being away from Kenzo … They love Kenzo.

“He’s a handsome little boy. He looks like a combination of the two of them and you can’t do better than that. And he’ll be tall all right.”

It’s so nice to hear when families thrive and wish nothing but the best for each other after a break up.  It’s a rare thing and I applaud them for making things easier on their daughters by supporting each other!

    Hi I think that Kmora is a great mother to those girls. I have watched her show for ever, and I thought that she treats the girls like little princeses. and I know that she will be just as great of a mother with her son. Keep on pushing Kimora, we love you.
