"Today is very hard for me and my family...but one thing that is keeping me going is knowing that my son and I just gained an amazing angel, my fiancé, and Exodus father...Earl Simmons..! I will forever love you and you will always be in my heart!" she wrote in an Instagram post. The caption was accompanied by a picture of the couple's four-year-old son, Exodus.
