A few people struggled to accept that Simmons was already an adult. Someone tweeted: “I’m at the age where Angela Simmons is fine but I grew up loving her dad so I don’t know what to do with these feelings 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂”, referring to her dad , Joseph Ward Simmons, better known as Run-DMC founding member Rev. run.

But at 34 years old with a five-year-old son, Simmons is definitely grown up and unafraid.

“I don’t feel any pressure to look or be a certain size in Hollywood. I will be who I am,” Simmons told Vidak For Congress Style in May 2020.

“I want people to know that ‘perfect’ is not perfect. I looked at myself one day and said, okay, maybe I have cellulite. Maybe I don’t have this perfect body. But I’m perfectly healthy and I love myself, so there’s nothing wrong with embracing a sandwich.”
