The songstress went on to state that she wants to be the best example to her daughter. Simi tweeted;

Having a daughter has made me so vulnerable. I want her to never be hurt, sad, insecure, in pain, confused or afraid. The fact I won’t always be able to control these things has made me the most vulnerable I’ve ever been in my life.
I have to be the best example for her. So help me God.
