Victoria Monét is celebrating her first Father's Day with her dad.

On Sunday, June 16, the "Moment" singer, 35, shared a post on X (formerly Twitter) which featured a photo of her and her father hugging as they spent time together as a family.

"Spending our first Father’s Day together ever," she wrote in the post, calling it "a real blessing."

"The little girl in me is so happyyyyyy," she finished, adding that she was "healing."

During an August 2023 appearance on the podcast Way Up, hosted by The Breakfast Club alum Angela Yee, the Grammy winner revealed that she had recently connected with her father for the first time in her life.

"I was born an only child, but ... I met my dad in my twenties," she revealed. "And I discovered that I have a sister."

The singer also had one word to describe meeting her sister for the first time: "Beautiful."

"[It was] really hard at first, because it's new information, where, like, she was surprised — it was the whole thing," she explained.

Monét added in the interview that she considers herself to have grown up as an only child, a dynamic which influenced her music and creative process immensely, she said.

"I think I was doing a lot of creating in my room," she explained. "I didn't have someone to just talk to. Maybe that's why I lean towards writing or being creative to have an outlet to let some of my feelings out."

The musician has been candid about just how close she is with her mother, L’Tanya Chestang-Cubit — who even introduced her as she accepted the Rising Star award at Billboard's Women in Music ceremony earlier this year.

"I’m L’Tanya Chestang-Cubit, also known as Mommy Monét," her mother said at the event in March.

"I remember how you were a little girl, and you were too shy to tell your teacher that you did not have a seat so you sat with your knees bent and legs crossed and pretended that you had a chair," she said in part during the introduction. "Baby girl, not only today do you have a seat at the table, but it’s front and center as you’re inspiring young ladies to find their voice in music."

"It’s one thing to receive an award, but to receive it from someone you’ve known your whole life is really awesome," Monét said, directly addressing her mother. "Thank you so much for being here, Mom."

The artist is also a parent herself. In 2021, she and her boyfriend John Gaines welcomed daughter Hazel, now 3. Monét even made Hazel the youngest Grammy Award nominee of all time when she used her toddler's (and her mother's) vocals on her track "Hollywood."

Speaking with PEOPLE in July 2023, she said that watching Hazel fall in love with music for the first time gave her a new way of looking at songwriting and creating music.

“I see her learning rhythm, trying to catch different cadences and what she's attracted to in songs,” Monét said of her "gifted" daughter. “I just really get re-inspired by that innocence and that curiosity about music.”
