Karrueche Tran reportedly got emotional after she saw on-again, off-again boyfriend, Chris Brown's daughter.

According to Hollywood Life, the Loyal singer's mother, Joyce Hopkins, who shares a close relationship with the 26-year-old model, arranged for a video call to see Royalty.

"Karrueche started asking questions about [Royalty]. She asked Joyce what she's like. Kae's really only seen pictures of her online and asked Joyce if she looked more like Chris or her mother," a source said. "Joyce told her she looked like Chris and Karrueche said, 'Well, I'm sure she's cute as a button'."

"Joyce did something that Chris doesn't even know," the insider added. "At that moment, she told Karrueche she'd call her right back and she did, but for this time, she FaceTimed her. Kae had answered it and it was Joyce and Royalty on the other end! Joyce wanted Kae to see Royalty's beauty for herself."

"She started crying and confided in Joyce, telling her that she had always wanted a baby by Chris," the source said. "She wanted him to experience being a father for the first time with her. [Joyce] told Karrueche to stop crying and to talk to Chris. Joyce loves Karrueche a lot, like she's her own child and she wants her to be happy in life, and with Chris."

It was recently reported that the Say Goodbye singer and Tran were back together.

However, neither Brown nor Tran have confirmed on social media whether they are dating again.

After reports emerged about the 25-year-old R&B singer's love child, Tran announced her split with Brown by declaring she did not want "baby drama".

Last month, Tran opened up about their latest break-up in an emotionally-charged interview with Fix My Life coach Iyanla Vanzant, which aired on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.
