A few days ago, super­mod­el Naomi Camp­bell post­ed a self­ie with a stun­ning young wom­an and cap­tioned it “My baby girl, my daugh­ter @ryandestiny watch tonight @staronfox at 9pm #ros­espenceriscom­ing @theoriginalbigdaddy @queenlatifah @lennykravitz”


This had some folks scratch­ing their heads, won­der­ing if Camp­bell was reveal­ing a long-lost child. But the wom­an is not her real life daugh­ter, but actress Ryan Des­tiny, who plays Campbell’s daugh­ter on TV. Here are 5 things to know about this up-and-com­ing beau­ty.


1. The 22 year-old stars in Lee Daniels’ new FOX series Star play­ing Alexan­dra Crane, the daugh­ter of a rock star who is strug­gling to find her own fame as mem­ber of an Atlanta girl group. Camp­bell plays Alexandra’s moth­er Rose Spencer. 


2. She is a native of Detroit, Michi­gan.


3. She is a tal­ent­ed singer in real life and belonged to the girl group Love Doll­house, which was signed to Rus­sell Sim­mons All Def Label. In 2014 the group released the hit sin­gle Can I. They’ve since dis­band­ed.

4. Music runs in the fam­i­ly. Destiny’s father Deron Irons is half of the 90s R&B duo Guesss

5. She appeared in the 2013 AMC series Low Win­ter Sun, and received crit­i­cal acclaim for her star­ring role in the 2015 film, A Girl Like Grace, about a poor Haitian-Amer­i­can girl liv­ing in a Mis­sis­sip­pi trail­er park and mourn­ing her best friend’s sui­cide. Although the film was panned by crit­ics, Des­tiny was laud­ed for her role;

“That the film tran­scends its clich­es at all is due entire­ly to Destiny’s com­mit­ted lead turn. Though she’s most­ly asked to play vari­a­tions on meek, pouty or sul­try, the effort­less­ly charis­mat­ic star not only stands out among her more sea­soned col­leagues but also hints at an inner life the film seems too dis­tract­ed to explore.” –Vari­ety

Ryan is def­i­nite­ly one to watch in 2017.

She is GORGEOUS!!!!!! She looks wayyyyy bet­ter than the oth­er (2) girls on this show that I will not be watch­ing.


LOL, I feel the same damn way — like how you gonna make a show about an ATLANTA girl r & b group and have 2 of the girls be white, and the main girl of the show that is the poor under­dog is the blonde white girl — Naww. and why for when the black girl is so cap­ti­vat­ing and the one I want to watch? Show boy­cotted. but she is sooo gor­geous.


Nooo— don’t boy­cott the show. It’s one of my favorite shows.

She beee uuuu ti ful. She takes my breath away — gor­geous. But that can’t be the stan­dard for Black girls. That you have to be drop dead beau­ti­ful, like Naomi was when she was young, while the oth­er girls are just aver­age and even below aver­age and still make it.


She is absolute­ly gor­geous. Wow!


She is indeed gor­geous.
