Kailia Posey, a former child star of US reality TV show Toddlers & Tiaras, has died at the age of 16, her family have said.
Posey’s mother Marcy Posey Gatterman announced the news online yesterday.
“I don’t have words or any thoughts,” Gatterman wrote, sharing a picture of her daughter dressed for a school prom. “A beautiful baby girl is gone.”
Posey was also known after her cheeky grin at the age of five became a widely-shared gif on social media.
