Did Rihanna’s Mini-Me Land A Modeling Deal?


Rihanna has an adorable 7-year-old doppelgänger,
and everyone is shook. On Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019, the “Umbrella”
hitmaker took to Instagram to share a shocking snapshot with her 73 and a half million followers,
captioned: “Almost drop my phone. How?” The photo featured her clear-as-day doppelganger,
aspiring model-actress Ala’a Skyy, giving her best Rihanna-esque pose. Of course, the 31-year-old music star wasn’t
the only person surprised by the uncanny resemblance. According to E! News, a number of Rihanna’s
famous pals quickly commented on the image. Quantico star Priyanka Chopra simply wrote, “Wow?!” And Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba
similarly shared, “Legit WOW.” Meanwhile, rapper Snoop Dogg asked, “When did u have a baby[?]” It should be noted that, as of July 2019,
Rihanna has not yet had a child of her own. However, these types of comments kept on rolling
in from her adoring fans. According to People, one person wrote, “Rihanna got a daughter!” Another fan commented, “[L.O.L.] I thought Rihanna used the baby filter.” Meanwhile, one follower dubbed the snap, “Badgirl Reincarnation.” Even model-turned-TV-personality Tyra Banks
notably got in on the action, which is where the speculation surrounding Ala’a’s potential
future prospects comes in, according to Page Six. Sharing the now famous pic on her own Instagram
account, the 45-year-old multi-talent referenced a Rihanna hit 2006 single when she wrote to
her 7.5 million followers, “S.O.S. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME identify [Rihanna’s]
#freshfierceface mini-me!” As of July 26th, it’s unclear whether Banks
or Rihanna have personally reached out to Ala’a — or if there’s any chance this little
beauty could land a modeling contract with the America’s Next Top Model host — but
either way, it’s pretty amazing how quickly her photo went viral. Anybody and everybody can have a fierce walk.” Rihanna’s post has garnered over an astounding
7 million likes — and it looks like little Ala’a couldn’t be happier about the exposure. She quickly wrote to the “We Found Love” singer
in an Instagram post, “Thank you [Rihanna] for posting my picture! I’ve always wanted to be a model.” Proud mom Bria Baytops has since switched
Ala’a’s account on the social media platform over to her own page, which currently boasts
more than 91,000 followers. While opening up about Rihanna’s unexpected
shoutout, Baytops told Good Morning America on Wednesday, July 24th, “[I was at work when] a coworker walked in
and was like, ‘Rihanna just posted your daughter.’ I was just starstruck. Like it was surreal and still is. […] [My daughter] just said that she’s going
to be a star.” Baytops also spoke with The Blast this week,
revealing that she typically hasn’t noticed Ala’a’s resemblance to Rihanna, saying, “Because she’s my child. I see her everyday. It’s only when people mention it, I’m like
whoa she does.” In other Rihanna news, has been hard at work
on her ninth studio album. The Fenty Beauty mogul teased her upcoming
record while chatting with Interview in June. Speaking about balancing her busy, multifaceted
schedule with a renewed focus on self-care and prioritizing her personal life, she revealed, “It’s the reason why an album isn’t being
spat out like it used to. I used to be in the studio, only the studio,
for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it’s like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty
the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need
to take care of them all.” Without dishing when the new music will drop,
Rihanna simply said fans can expect the album to be, quote, “really fun.” As for her headline-making mini-me, let’s
hope a bright star will shine in little Ala’a Skyy’s future. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your
