Cuteness overload! Well, at least that’s what Karrueche Tran thinks about her ex Chris Brown spending some quality time with his daughter, Royalty. After a messy break-up, Karrueche has been able to find a soft spot in her heart for Chris after seeing him bond with his baby.
Chris Brown, 25, and Karrueche Tran, 26, have always had a rocky romance, but lately, Chris’ model ex is thinking about him in a more positive way. Karrueche was initially shocked and upset by Chris’ news that he had a secret baby. However, seeing the “Loyal” singer get close with his daughter, Royalty, has seriously warmed Karrueche’s heart. Aw! A source reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY how Karrueche is starting to think of Chris differently.
Karrueche On Chris Brown’s Baby: She Thinks He’ll Finally Treat A Woman Right
Karrueche never thought Chris would cheat on her and have a baby with Nia Guzman-Amey, 31, a model who he hardly knew. The news was crushing, but the California-native is starting to find peace knowing that Chris will finally be able to treat at least one woman right: his daughter, Royalty.
“Karrueche is proud of Chris for finally stepping up and taking care of a woman,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Even if it’s his own daughter. She’s so proud of him for that and it’s refreshing for her to see that he’s taking care of his responsibilities.”
And while Karrueche would like to officially make up with Chris one day, she’d rather have her ex focus on what’s important: being a dad. And on April 16, Chris proved he’s taking fatherhood seriously by posting an adorable first photo of himself with the precious tot.
“Seeing that picture, Karrueche knows in her heart that Chris needs to be with his daughter right now. She doesn’t want to in anyway distract him from what he’s here to do – to take care of his little girl,” the source explains.
“She loves Chris so much, that will never change. But right now, that picture spoke to her loudly. The way Chris looked at his daughter and had his nose on her ear tells it all,” the insider adds. “He’s really in good place and it seems that his priorities are right on target. He’s taking care of Royalty and Karrueche would much rather him do that than focus on their broken relationship.”
It’s pretty much impossible not to lose it over how adorable that first picture of Chris and Royalty is. They’re basically twinsies!
“Karrueche is so proud of Chris and finds it refreshing that he’s taking care of his responsibilities,” the source adds. “She’s so happy Royalty has her father in her life. It’s something she wishes she wish she had when she was Royalty’s age.”
