Alexis Skyy and her ex-boyfriend, rapper Fetty Wap, are receiving praise from social media users. Earlier this week, Skyy took to Instagram Live to share a heartwarming moment of her daughter, Alaiya Grace, expressing excitement to visit her “Dad Fetty Wap” in prison.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Fetty Wap was sentenced to six years in prison in May. The rapper’s charges were reportedly related to narcotics trafficking.
As The Shade Room previously reported, the rapper isn’t Alaiya Grace’s biological father. However, it appears he’s remained a consistent figure in her life despite his split from Skyy and time incarcerated.

Social Media Reacts
Social media users entered The Shade Room’s comment section to praise Skyy for her parenting and Fetty Wap for remaining a constant fixture in Grace’s life. As The Shade Room previously reported, Alaiya Grace has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus. Additionally, Skyy remains her sole caregiver as Grace’s biological father, Brandon Medford, is allegedly absent from her day-to-day life.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, hydrocephalus is a “neurological disorder caused by an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles (cavities) deep within the brain.” The outlet reports that the “excess fluid” causes “harmful pressure on the brain’s tissues.”
“All that shows is Fetty not the dad but he still keeps a relationship with her to the point that she loves him. Spread positivity ❤️”
“I just love how baby girl has beat all the odds .. She’s so beautiful and talking so well . 😍😍😍😍”
“This baby is so articulate that’s because she’s being loved on it shows !! I commend her as a mother and also Alexis has a great family system a loving mother and grandmother some of y’all don’t even know what that look like !!! Send love and light 💜”

The Mother Of One Recently Opened Up About Single Parenthood Exclusively To TSR
In September, Alexis Skyy recently sat down for an interview with The Shade Room’s Editor, Cassandra Santiago. At the time, Skyy reflected on the challenges of navigating single motherhood.
“I’m here, I’m here, I’m here. I’m like trying to do everything, and I’m one person,” Skyy explained. “When she was younger, it was easier because she wasn’t requiring as much. Now, it’s a lot. She wants to be everywhere I’m at. She’s hip to my hip. She has her tantrums. It’s just harder. She’s just attached, so she has separation anxiety. It’s been a bit difficult, but that’s my baby, though.”
Despite the challenges, Sky explained that the “most important thing” in motherhood is having “balance.”
“I think that’s the most important thing, having balance. Postpartum is real, real,” Skyy told Santiago. “You just gotta have time for yourself ’cause you can go crazy for real.”
