Chris Brown’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran had an emotional reaction after she saw the “Loyal” singer’s baby, a source told Hollywood Life. The 26-year-old model broke up with rapper Brown in March after she discovered he had fathered a child, but actually seeing the baby stirred intense feelings.

During a recent phone call with Brown’s mother, Joyce Hawkins, Tran asked her about the singer’s 9-month-old daughter, Royalty. Hawkins who has a good relationship with Tran, decided that Tran should see Royalty and arranged for a video call, but Brown was not aware of the incident.


“Karrueche started asking questions about [Royalty]. She asked Joyce what she’s like. Kae’s really only seen pictures of her online and asked Joyce if she looked more like Chris or her mother,” the source told Hollywood Life. “Joyce told her she looked like Chris and Karrueche said, ‘Well, I’m sure she’s cute as a button.’

“At that moment, she told Karrueche she’d call her right back and she did, but for this time, she FaceTimed her. Karrueche had answered it and it was Joyce and Royalty on the other end! Joyce wanted Kae to see Royalty’s beauty for herself,” the source said.

The source reportedly said that Tran began crying after she saw Royalty and told Hawkins that “she had always wanted a baby by Chris,” adding: “She wanted him to experience being a father for the first time with her.”

Hawkins, who according to the source, loves Tran like her own child and always wanted her to be with Brown, tried to console her. Tran had earlier said in an interview that she was hurt after she found that Brown had a child with model Nia Guzman. Meanwhile, Brown is reportedly desperate to get back with Tran and has planned a surprise for her birthday on May 17.
