This artist and music mogul is a proud parent right now. Sunday August 29, Diddy‘s three girls all modeled together, on the runway for Dolce & Gabbana. The show was in Venice, Italy, and 14-year-old twins D’Lila and Jessie Combs and 15 years old Luck combs all participated. The rapper and his daughters shared their feelings about the event on social media, and they are all delighted that they had the opportunity.

The twins share a striking resemblance to her. Diddy spoke briefly about Porter in a video that appears to have been shared from Venice. Read on to see D’Lila, Jessie and Chance on the show and find out what they had to say about the experience.

On his own, Diddy shared photos of the show and wrote: “Words cannot explain. LOVE.” In addition to D’Lila, Jessie and Chance, Diddy also has three sons: 27 years old Justin with the fashion designer Misa Hylton; 30 years Quincy, who is the son of Porter whom he adopted; and 23 years old Christian, also with Porter.
It wasn’t the first time his three daughters had been modeling together. In 2013, young girls participated in a children’s fashion show At New York. At that point, Diddy tweeted (via the Daily mail), “Words can’t explain how proud I am of my ladies! There is no greater feeling.”
In a video on his Instagram Story which appears to have been filmed while in Venice, Diddy shared some life tips and then mentioned Porter. “Life is short. Tomorrow is not promised. Live every day to the fullest. Be your best. Be the biggest. Be the happiest,” said the rapper and producer. “These are things I tell myself that I don’t preach.” Then, referring to the sun’s rays breaking through the clouds behind him, he said, “Baby, I see you. Watch you shine up there” and tagged Porter’s account, @ladykp.
Diddy and Porter were together on and off between 1994 and 2007. The model and actor died of pneumonia at the age of 47.
