It's really sweet," said Eve. "I do hope they don't go too far back in the day to listen to certain things. That is my hope. ... Oh lord, the whole first album!

Celebrating her youngest's 13th birthday last week, Eve wrote on Instagram in a sweet tribute, "Awwwww Mini! I Can't believe you are 13!!!! How did that happen so fast?!?! Wishing you the best #birthday ever and I hope all of your #wishes come true #bonusdaughter 🤗❤️🥰🎂🥳."
