It’s crazy how time flies. It seems like it was just yesterday we were reporting that Vanessa Simmons and Mike Wayans welcomed their daughter, Ava Marie Jean Wayans. Now, they’re celebrating her first birthday!
Earlier this month, family and friends of the proud parents gathered in Los Angeles to celebrate the little cutie’s first birthday with a carnival themed birthday bash.
“She is a little miracle in my life and she’s come along and helped me restore faith in myself and confidence in myself,” Simmons said of her daughter a few weeks ago. “My child has definitely allowed me to grow more. It’s just been an awesome experience for me.”
“She [teaches me] something new every day. Which is not something that I expected when having a baby,” Vanessa continued, “I didn’t expect for her to come along and teach me things, but she did.”
