Toya Wright: Redefining Motherhood

Toya Wright on Starting Over

You’ve seen her on TV and all over social media. From the famous relationship with Lil Wayne to the awesome sweet 16 for her now adult daughter Reginae Carter, but how well does the world really know Antonia “Toya” Wright? Well it’s time to find out. Toya sat down with Kontrol for our special Mother’s Day piece to discuss being a mother and starting over.

“Reginae made me a card and painted her handprints and a drawing of me and her on the T-shirt.  It was the sweetest and most thoughtful gift I had ever received because it came from my daughter and she put  I love you so much mommy on the back. I still have it that T-shirt.  I’ll keep it forever”

We saw Toya as a young mother raising her daughter that she shares with Dewanye “Lil Wayne” Carter. We watched Reginae grow and transform into a woman right in front of our eyes. Her mother was always right there by her side. Molding her and cheering her on all the way. We can imagine that easing a spotlight couldn’t have been easy. We asked Toya what tactics did she find best to use when it came to raising her daughter. “My mother didn’t raise me but she’s always been a loving mother.  My mom is the free sprit, go with the flow type.  I’m a little more structured when it comes to my life and my kids”. We recently saw this displayed when Toya was discussion dating with her oldest daughter Reginae. The passion that she displays shows that she wants the best for her daughter. That’s something we can all support.

Week after week we see Toya as a fashion icon. From her eye catching styles on her social media pages to her bonnets dripped in bling. What would the perfect gift for her for Mother’s Day be? According to Toya, she’s already experienced one of the best Mother’s Day gifts from her oldest daughter. “Reginae made me a card and painted her handprints and a drawing of me and her on the T-shirt.  It was the sweetest and most thoughtful gift I had ever received because it came from my daughter and she put  I love you so much mommy on the back. I still have it that T-shirt.  I’ll keep it forever”, she shared. The moments a mother cherishes are the special ones that come from the heart.

 

Something tells us that it’s only the beginning for small handprints! Toya’s new bundle of joy Reign just celebrated her first birthday. A star studded affair that was captured for all the world to see. The darling new belle of the South, Reign Beaux is taking over and emerged in to our hearts with a smile that could light up a room. With Reginae in her twenties, and a new baby years later, one could only imagine, things have changed a lot from the first baby girl to the new baby girl. “I was a little rusty.  It’s been 20 years but I’m loving it.  Things are so different this time around. When I had Reginae I was extremely young and didn’t know the first thing about being a mom.  I’m more experienced now”, shares Toya. This is something we can surely see from Disney on Ice to baby Reign never wanted to leave her mommy’s side.

Mother’s Day, a special day that we celebrate moms and moms-to-be. With filming and being an entrepreneur, you can imagine that days get busy for this young mommy mogul. She hasn’t lost sight of what’s truly important. That’s amazing. Being a mother is a job where you almost never clock out for a shift. When it comes to advice on appreciating mom, Toya believes it’s an every day job. “I think we should celebrate mothers everyday not just once a year. Give your mothers flowers while she can still smell them.  Shower her with your love as much as you can”, Toya states with love and dedication in her tone.

 

Watching Toya and Reign interact during their photo shoot was a moment that we are glad Kontrol could be a part of. We’re reminded that no matter what level of life you’re at, a Mother’s love is just that, “a Mother’s love” and that’s the most undeniable role that a woman could ever play. Make sure to check Toya out on “The Family Hustle” with her friends and family.
