Their mom, Dawn, recently shared an exciting video clip on her social media account, showcasing Aaliyah’s flawless long jump, reaching an impressive distance of 20 ft. Two days ago, Dawn delightedly shared the video clip, accompanied by a caption that read, “Way to go @iamaaliyahelliott!! So proud of you!!!

She also added text on the clip itself, exclaiming, “20ft club. THAT’S MY BABY!” In another post, Dawn captured a heartfelt moment when Aaliyah was overwhelmed with tears of joy after her incredible jump. Dawn’s caption conveyed her deep affection for her daughter, stating, “I love this little girl like crazy. So much talent and she is so hard on herself. I may or may not have shed some tears of joy after that 20’ jump. 🥹🥲… and her jump before that one was every bit of 20’, but she fouled by a toe so it obviously didn’t count. 🤷🏽‍♀️” Fans were quick to join in and celebrate Aaliyah’s remarkable achievement, flooding Dawn’s post with an outpouring of supportive comments.
