Toni Braxton's son, Diezel, who is now a celebrity himself, moved past autism and is active in the field of fashion for almost two years. He has been very inspirational.
Parents are always proud of their children's achievements, especially when they know that their kids have gone through some rough times - health wise or career-wise. Singer-songwriter Toni Braxton shared her happiness on Instagram when her now autism-free son signed a contract with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency.
Yes, Toni Braxton's 16-year-old son, Diezel, who is now a celebrity himself, fortunately, moved past autism. He has been active in the field of fashion for almost two years now.
He has inspired many people with his journey and his mother is the one encouraging him through all thick and thin.
Diezel, who was born with autism, was 13-years-old when Braxton found out that he no longer had autism. Toni gushed about her son's achievement, when she wrote, “ My youngest son — everyone knows — my son Diezel suffers from — or I should say suffered from autism.”

“I am one of the lucky parents. Early diagnosis changes everything. I will tell you this. I will shout it from the rooftops. My son Diezel is off the spectrum. Off the spectrum being autistic.”
She adds further, “Susan Wright, who unfortunately passed from Autism Speaks when she found out about my son and I she called me immediately and said ‘Get him in this program. Do this, do that.’ She’s been an advocate in helping me so much. I miss her already. I mean, I can’t believe she’s gone.”
Diezel has not been knocked out again by autism, and has become a “social butterfly”, his mother shared. He is living a normal life, plays with his friends and hangs out all the time.
Autism spectrum disorder is a health condition in which individual struggles to socially communicate with anyone. It is a severe condition in which autism patient finds it challenging even to have a small conversation with anyone. To come out of that phase, was a big deal for the Diezel and his entire family.
For people who might not be aware of modeling agencies, Wilhelmina Modeling Agency is one of the oldest agencies in town. Brands like Maybelline and Gucci use the firm to source talent for their work.
