Tyrese is watching his baby girl grow up before his eyes and like any proud father, he's vowed to spend his life protecting her.
In a photo posted to the singer's Instagram page, 9-year-old Shayla Gibson can be seen sitting next to her father in a salon as the pair get pedicures. Tyrese credits his long-time mentor Rev Run with capturing the priceless father-daughter moment, before writing a lengthy message about what it has meant to watch his daughter grow up, how he'll always be there for her, and how she has redefined his idea of love.
