The 33-year-old keeps her personal life off social media, but has shared snaps of her mum and grandmother - and it appears she is very close to her family! Celebrating her mum’s 60th birthday, she wrote: "My beautiful mama. Mum, you’ve been there for me through thick and thin... Always reminding me to keep working hard, look out for others, live with an open heart and laugh at it all.

"Your endless love, humour, positivity and prayers do wonders to the world. More than you’ll ever know. In a world that was not necessarily built to raise up the brown girls, you have always made me feel capable of anything. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about how grateful I am to have you. Have an amazing day today. Happy 60th Birthday." How sweet is that?!
