Kimora's rep confirmed the happy news to Us Weekly on January 24. “He joins the family as Kimora’s two daughters have gone off to college."
"Ming Lee Simmons is a sophomore at NYU, and the next youngest Aoki Lee Simmons is a freshman at Harvard.

Kimora now has all boys at home. Gary joins sons Kenzo Lee Hounsou and Wolfe Lee Leissner," the 44-year-old's rep added.

In 2018, Kimora went back to college and obtained her Business degree. She graduated the same year as Ming, who celebrated her own high school graduation. “I did this for myself and I did it for my kids,” KLS Cosmetics CEO explained to Us Weekly at the time.
“I believe in continued education and I think there are a lot of different ways you can go about it … I think it taking 20 years and having four kids made it even more fulfilling to me. Even though finishing up my classes was grueling at times, it makes me feel so good to have done it," she continued.
Kimora relaunched Baby Phat in 2019 with her husband. She cofounded the iconic 2000s brand with Russell, 62, in 1999. Her daughters modeled for the fashion label and starred in campaigns in the past.
Kimora also shared a cute throwback video for Ming's 20th birthday on January 21. "Happy 20th birthday to my biggest baby @mingleesimmons! We’ve been side by side for 20 whole years! Mommy is so proud of you! Keep shooting for the stars!! We love you so much! And wish you a FABULOUS DAY!?♥️⭐️????," she wrote alongside the clip.
