Stephanie is very fond of her daughters and she even manages an Instagram account for them by the name, @lailaxgia. She frequently uploads pictures of both her girls as they grow up.

Darnell Wants To Be The Father To His Children That He Didn’t Have

Darnell and Steph were in the early years of their relationship when he found out that his then-girlfriend was pregnant through a text message. At first, he thought Stephanie was messing with him but she wasn’t. The young couple was scared thinking how how things would go but their respective parents were supportive and encouraged them to embrace the gift bravely.

Darnell doesn’t appear in public with his wife or kids. However, back on January 2, 2020, Washington stepped on the stage at Camping World Stadium in Orlando with his mother, Hill, wife Stephanie, and infant daughter Laila. It was the moment when he announced his commitment to Georgia when he was seen holding his daughter in a Georgia Bulldog onesie.

Announcing his commitment, Washington also said, “Through thick and thin, I just want to be the father I never had.

Washington’s father abandoned his mother and his seven siblings when they were very young. Due to this, the circumstances made him bounce around nearly seven foster homes. He was even separated from his other siblings except his brother Ezekiel.

So, the only thing he wants to give his children would be the love that he didn’t get from his dad.
