“I Recognized My Strength To Walk Away…” Angela Simmons Confirms She’s Now A Single Mother
Rumors have seemed to surround shoe designer Angela Simmons ever since fans suspected she was pregnant with now 1-year-old son, Sutton Joseph. Fans wondered who was the child’s father and questioned her moral choices since Simmons has always been pretty vocal about abstaining from sex until marriage. It now appears that Simmons won’t be making that trip down the aisle anytime soon, as the 30-year-old took to Instagram to announce she’ll be entering 2018 as a single woman and has chosen to end her engagement to fiancé and Sutton’s father, Sutton Tennyson.
In the lengthy post, the Growing Up Hip-Hop cast member and producer doesn’t give too many details about what led to break up, but does state that she chose to leave an unhealthy situation while also offering some words of encouragement to other single mothers:
“I recognized my strength to walk away from what isn’t healthy for me.”
“All of those who are single mothers that are hurting that want to give up .. Don’t ! Also don’t stay somewhere that you aren’t valued. And don’t allow anyone to treat you less than what you are. It’s not easy to face my truth in front of this cold world.”

All of those who are single mothers that are hurting that want to give up .. Don't ! Also don't stay somewhere that you aren't valued . And don't allow anyone to treat you less than what you are. It's not easy to face my truth in front of this cold world . But I face it with pride because I got through this and will get through it all! Protect yourself !!! Take the steps you need to make sure you are really happy!! Really happy inside. Not just a smile . Not just waking up to another day. But loving the day you are waking up in.

And ready to uplift anyone who needs uplifting along the way! 2018 … I can't wait to meet you ❤️
This past summer, many suspected all wasn’t well in the youngest Simmons sister’s household after a series of cryptic Instagram posts alluded to dishonesty and finding the strength to move on. Fans often questioned exactly how Simmons and Tennyson initially got together as social media investigators dug deep into her mysterious man’s past and discovered criminal records which seemed an awkward fit for Simmons whose father is Reverend Run Simmons and is very clear that faith and spirituality is a big part of the Simmons’ children upbringing. The vague situation was even tied into her Growing Up Hip-Hop story line when friends and family questioned the status of her relationship when she was caught not wearing her engagement ring.
Good for Simmons for walking away from a situation that wasn’t beneficial to her and we’re sure the two will find a way to co-parent their beautiful son peacefully. As for her future relationships, it may be time for Yo Gotti to get down in Ang’s DM’s and shot his shot.
