Whitney’s daughter with ex-husband Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was born in 1993. Fans would watch Bobbi Kristina grow up alongside the singer, occasionally bringing her out during performances as they expressed their unconditional love for each other in front of an audience of thousands. “Having Bobbi Kristina … I could never do anything that could top that,” Whitney said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “God knows, I have been in front of millions and millions of people, and that has been incredible, to feel that give-take thing. But, man, when I gave birth to her and when they put her in my arms, I thought: ‘This has got to be it. This is the ultimate.’ I haven’t experienced anything greater.” Bobbi Kristina affirmed this, saying in a 2012 interview with Oprah, “She wasn’t only a mother, she was a best friend.”
