Whenever most of us think about the iconic singing/songwriting soul duo, Ashford & Simpson, we instantly feel like singing one of their classic lines, like, “And now it’s solid! Solid as a ROCK! That’s what this love is…” and the countless other FIRE songs they pumped out through the years. But most us probably don’t think of their kids whenever we hear the legendary duo’s names, because many of us didn’t even know they had kids. Scroll down to see their daughters all grown up today and what they’re doing now….
Meet The Ashford & Simpson Children
Throughout the years, some of us have seen pics of Asia Ashford (34) and Nicole Ashford (46), as children and teens, but they sort of stepped away from the spotlight as they became adults.
These days, the ladies are continuing their parents’ legacy by running their parents’ legendary restaurant/bar called, Sugar Bar, located in Manhattan, NY. Many fans and celebs alike oftentimes frequent the spot that Nick and Valerie started. Also, when Valerie’s not working, the 74 year old music legend is reportedly very hands on with Sugar Bar as well.

Asia Ashford captioned the above photo with:
“It’s been nine years and I still remember him like this. #NickAshford #LoveYouALWAYSandFOREVER”
Today, Valerie Simpson is doing her part to make sure she, too, continues to build the legacy of Ashford & Simpson. She recently starred in the popular Broadway musical, “Chicago,” and is beyond excited for the opportunity. Her husband, Nick, would be so proud of her and their daughters for being the strong ambitious women they are. Rest on Nick Ashford.
