Jada was pregnant with her son Jaden when the photos were taken, meaning that the timeframe from this was in the late spring/early summer of 1998 (she gave birth to him on July 8th of that year.)

"She was funny and fun and so ... present. As talented and famous as she was ... she didn’t wear it on her sleeve," Jada continued."Not many of us in this business can claim that ... not even myself at certain points in my life."

"She was so down to earth... that’s what I admired about her most. If only we could have celebrated her more while she was here," Jada finished. Whitney passed on February 11th, 2012 from "drowning" and "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use," according to The Los Angeles County Department of Coroner.
