Romeo Miller Praises Daughter River for Being a 'Fighter' Amid Battle With Type 1 Diabetes

Despite going through hard times due to River Rose's illness, the 'Growing Up Hip Hop' alum manages to see the silver lining, which is having a stronger bond with her daughter.

AceShowbiz - Romeo Willer (formerly known as Lil' Romeo) has come clean with his daughter's illness on Thanksgiving. Revealing that River Rose has been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, the "Growing Up Hip Hop" alum praised the young girl for being a "fighter."

On Thursday, November 23, the 34-year-old shared on Instagram a video of the toddler at hospital. There were also pictures of the two playing with River's sister, Winter, whom the rapper also shares with fiancee Drew Sangster.

"River Rose Miller aka my little rocket! Before I go to bed tonight, on this special day I give thanks to you and for you. Behind that comely smile, there's a fighter!" Romeo kicked off his caption. "I've never met a stronger human and I thank God everyday for assigning me to be your papa!"

"We've kept things private, but my daughter is one of the younger cases to be diagnosed with T1D. Type 1 diabetes is a chronic (life-long) autoimmune disease that prevents your pancreas from making insulin," the TV personality added. "It requires daily management with insulin injections, shots, and blood sugar monitoring just to survive."

Romeo continued, "At her age, there are many challenges and random sleep overs at the hospital, but our faith has never wavered and little sister Winter and Mama Drew are always by her side." He then noted, "The silver lining? Our bond is even stronger, because it's a must I be there for my daughter medically."

"We've been blessed to work with one of the best in the world in Doctor Francine Kaufman, and I wanna give that knowledge and access back to all whom are going through a similar journey," the father of two went on saying. "@omnipod and @dexcom has been a life saver, but my mission is to help the T1D community find a cure. We have some exciting news coming soon! The @mylittlerocketco is an all purpose company and charity inspired by my daughter and owned by my daughter. Romans 8:28."

Romeo concluded his post with the famous quote, 'you never know what someone is going through, so be kind.' "
