Infinity Gilyard recently shared details about her relationship with the foster mother Yandy Smith-Harris and her birth mother Lorraine Gilyard.
Infinity’s admission comes months after the sophomore and Yandy discussed past issues that caused their bond to become estranged. At the time, Yandy expressed their relationship soured after Infinity refused to see an elderly person who was reportedly trying to sell false stories to the media in order to remove the reality star’s other children from their home . The turmoil eventually led to Yandy’s husband, Mendeecees Harris, proposing Infinity should have its own apartment.
Last month, during a Q&A session, Infinity answered numerous questions about her life, including how her relationship with both of her mothers is. At 11:16 mark, Infinity opened up about how well her birth mother, Lorraine, and Yandy get along.
She said: “I have a feeling they like each other. i feel like her They talk here and there, I don’t know if they’ve been talking lately, but I know they like “hello bye”. Nothing too crazy, y’all. I know my mom is grateful that Yandy was able to just show up for me at this time of year in my life. My mother always tells me: Be thankful for her. Be thankful you met someone like her.’”
Following the comments, the 20-year-old revealed how grateful she is to have Yandy in her life.
Infinity said: “Nothing she’s done for me goes unnoticed. I’m just grateful man because I feel like our relationship was truly ordained by God. That was all God. Only me and her and the people in the courtroom know that this relationship is how I moved in with her, that was all God. That was none other than God.”
When asked how it feels to have two moms in her life, Infinity expressed that while she’s happy to have both wives present, she can’t help but see the difference in their parenting skills.
At 1:30 p.m., she said: “I’m lucky to have both mothers in my life. I feel like with Yandy I got to see what a functioning family looks like. Because of their family, they are family oriented. They’re all like special occasions. They network, they hang out, they talk to each other a lot.”
Infinity added, “While I felt my family was dysfunctional, I would call it dysfunctional because everyone is so spread out and not all on the same frequency as for my family, I wish it was more like me and my brothers knew that we had each other more and that our mother was more loving to us.
Continuing the conversation, Infinity described how Lorraine treated her when she became visibly emotional. She said: “I cried the other day and my mum was right here at my grandmother’s house. She said, ‘Don’t cry.’ She said, ‘Don’t cry. You don’t let anyone see you cry.”
Infinity also mentioned that she wished her birth mother would better understand her moments of despair instead of trying to force tough love.
Infinity wrapped up this portion of her question-and-answer session by telling her followers that despite the different dynamics between both women, she’s grateful to have her in her life. She said, “It’s great to have two characters in your life to help you tell your story and share what you need to do in life.”
When asked near the end of the video if her and Yandy’s relationship had improved after the viral disagreements between the two, Infinity revealed that while she loves Yandy, their relationship is still a work in progress.
She said: “I think so. I don’t know y’all, but I want it. . . . I just look forward to what God has in store for us, I told Yandy that too. I’m just looking forward to God having His will in this relationship and showing me how it’s going to be. I just want an amazing mother-daughter bond.”
Yandy first picked Infinity up as a teenager in 2018 and became her foster mom the following year.
No further details have been released since Infinity’s Q&A video.
