It would seem that former SWV member Leanne “Lelee” Lyons has been through it all:teenage pregnancy(she became a mother at age 15),being homeless after the end of SWV,losing her motherĀ at an early age,among other things. Through all her trials and tribulations,however,Lelee has managed to find happiness just being a mother to her two children Margaret and Khiry.

Lelee recently wrote a touching letter to her daughter for herĀ 20th birthday. Read below:

Hey my little girl

I can remember being pregnant with you and feeling as if i was the scum of the earth.People would look at me (knowing i was just a little girl) as I took the train to my prenatal appointments. I tried so hard to hide my pregnancy from family and friends of fear that people would judge me. Little did i know, that tummy would eventually grow(lol).Some did judge me, but I chose to give you life. Although I was only a teenager, I still decided i would do right by my child and do what parents do, take care of their kid.

The day was September 12, 1988, Uncle Devon rushed me to Harlem Hospital after my water broke at our Apt. on Grant Avenue in the Bronx. I knew something was wrong because I couldn’t stop peeing(lol). It was the longest peepee in the world. So, when we got to the hospital you wouldnt come out for nothing,which meant that i had to walk around for 12 hours in the labor room (IN PAIN) until you finally was ready.I remember the nurse saying to me “Miss Lyons, do you feel anything”? I responded,”Yes, but what can i do, Nothing! I was dealing with that pain like a grown woman(lol) and everyone was amazed.

Anyway, you were finally ready to come out and 1,2,3…..there you were. With my mother(RIP) at my side and a beautiful baby girl, my life completely changed.

Now, its Sept,12 and I cant believe u are the same precious gem that i gave birth to 20 years ago. The same kid I was trying to hide years ago, I tell the world how proud I am to be your mother. We’ve been through so much baby as mother and daughter and there were times when i just had a hard time being “mom” when grandma passed away. I have it all figured out now. I Love You with all my heart and I know you are now a woman(still looking 14), but you will still be my little girl. I pray that as you go through the next chapter of your life, you will make the right decisions and be woman enough to deal with the decisions that are wrong. Chose your battles wisely and remember that whatever you cant change yourself, move on baby. Do not depend on people, especially the people we call friends.

I LOVE YOU more than Life and I say to you proudly

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY”

Lelee has two children:a son named Khiry,18, and a daughter named Margaret,20.

  1. Hey Lelee I love your letter it really hit home because I got pregnant at 16 . My lovely mother told me to keep my head up dont worry what people think or say . Im 29 now my daughter is 12 . Your letter really touched me deeply cus I became pregnant at a early age myself never once did I regret that moment I experience with having my beautiful daughter . I love you for that heartwarming open letter you gave to me I really felt you inside may God bless you & your family what a good inspiration for those who can relate .

  2. Hi Leelee and family,
    In life if people ain’t talking about you, then you ain’t existing.
    tears run down my chick as I read you letter to your daughter, life is fun when you get to a stage and look back and have something to talk about.
    People are good in finding negetive thing to talk aboput others, but they don’t just take time to look into their own life.
    Just be happy for you life, there a millions out there who never had that chance.
    Don’t forget that there are those who love for who, and they will always love you no matter what.
    Love to you and your family.

Wow it’s been years like after Aunt Margaret passed & my once more b4 my graduation. Khiry & Margaret were little. They have grown into a beautiful young lady & handsom young man. I would like 2 talk 2 u I wanna know ur sisters r doin & my mom talk 2 aunt Regina about Henry, send me an email or call Shirley. Hear from U sonn I hope ,Shan

  9. THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKIN ABOUT!!
    THIS SHOULD PROVE TO YOU PEOPLE THAT CELEBRITIES ARE REAL PEOPLE WITH REAL FEELINGS. JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE SPOTLIGHT DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE PERFECT. LELEE IS SMART ENOUGH TO USE HER EXPERIENCES TO HELP THE NEXT GENERATION OF YOUNG WOMEN.
    FOR THAT I AM PROUD OF HER. HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO AIR YOUR DIRTY LAUNDRY TO THE WHOLE WORLD? ANYONE?

  10. I love you MOMMY!Muah to all hating also.Without you we wouldnt exist.At the end of the day no matter what anyone says,my mom made history.WHAT DID YOU DO?

    • I just want to say hello to margret. Its been a minute since we spoke or seen each other. N I knw ur memory is fuzzy but just follow me down memory lane for a second. Do u remember me I wuz your boyfriend along time ago. Back when the both of us went to zion.u where everything I wanted in a lady even tho I aint no what love wuz back then I knw I had strong feelings for you. If u get a chance to hit me up on facebook. Jus look for the screen name maserati moon. I hope to hear from u. Cuz it to me all these years to find u!!!!

  11. Well this is like my second time on here after I found out I was on this website! lol But all I want to say is that I love my mother dearly and every1 makes mistakes.Usually the ones pointing fingers and spreading UGLINESS are the ones that will ALWAYS have negativity to bring forth.My mom made history at the end of the day..What did YOU do?Love to all family, friends,and fans!MUAH!Love u mommy.

    • Hey miss lelee’s daughter….dont worry about what people say about your mom…at least your mom is doing good…and doing her….and at least…she’s woman enough to tell what she been through…so bump what people say…your mom is part of history….and that’s the truth…..alot of women..are either ashamed…or just not woman enough to tell the truth about themselves…but at least your mom did…so it doesnt matter at all..cause at the end of the day..they can’t be in or live in your mom shoes..and they are not apart of history either…so ignore these stupid people…cus they want ever be your mom..ever…and i love that letter she wrote to you on your birthday..that was very special..and sweet of your mom….and remember god loves you and your mom no matter what the situation may bring so keep your head up..

  12. People tryed to diss dis chick wen SWV was in dea prime but if it wasnt for Lelee, there would be no SWV becos she put the group together! Not no lawyer, no doctor, no manager…it was LELEE so i take my hat off to this beautiful woman and throughout her trials and tribulations, shes always been a queen in my eyes!

  13. Hey there folks

    I was just doing what every person in the spotlight does and check the web to see what the world is saying about him/her. I came across this site and saw my photos of my kids and I, but for a good purpose. I appreciate the comments, negative and positive. Unfortunately, I cant take away my past, but I guarantee you our lives growing up were different. Most of my life I have been misunderstood and that usually happens when people don’t know you. I have two beautiful children today and i am happy that God saw different because if it was left up to me back then, I probably wouldnt have a story.I don’t glorify teen pregnancy at all and I continue to bring awareness to this issue to bring it to an end. I had to start with my kids first.I am currently writing a book so that you all will understand who I am, what I went through and why before SWV and after.But most of all,I want to empower and show young women that there is strength in every situation.

    Whomever runs this site I appreciate you. Be Blessed!

    • Hi Lelee. I think your son and my daughter may be sister and brother. Can you please reach our to me. Especially if Lincoln projects sounds familiar.

  14. She has had a hard life. That’s a beautiful letter to her daughter (minus the pee pee part). She’s had extreme highs and extreme lows, but she still here so good for her. I hope she’s found some peace and happiness.

  15. That is such a beautiful message to her daughter! I can’t believe she has a 20 year old. She looks like a teenager herself.

  16. That was a nice letter and watch how u talk about people..i no her daughter margaret since i was 13 and we are very cool to this day…and if u wanna say somthin stupid why read her post…
