George Floyd’s Daughter Speaks Out About Her Dad For The First Time

Published

on

George Floyd was at his daughter Gianna Floyd’s side from the moment she was born into the world.

Floyd, who had just got off work received the call that Gianna, now six years old, was due to be born. A tired Floyd slept through hours of mother Roxie Washington’s painful labor. It was Gianna’s entrance into the world that would finally awaken him.

“She cried and he heard her,” Washington told “Good Morning America.” “They wiped her off and they gave her to him. I mean that was his baby. He wanted that moment though. He really really wanted that moment. He looked forward to that.”

Now Gianna feels an emptiness following her father’s death. In a recent interview, “she said she wants people to know “kinda that I miss him.”

Washington described Floyd as a supporter that did everything for their daughter.

“He just wanted her to have the best,” Washington said. “We were struggling so he did what he had to do as a man and he had to come here [to Minneapolis] to work. And he said I’m going to come back and get y’all.”

“I mean, that was his baby. He loved his little girl,” Washington said.

”And Gianna loved him. If you ask Gianna Floyd what her father was like, she’ll tell you that he was fun and played with her.

“He would put her on his shoulders,” Washington said. “She didn’t have to play with nobody else because daddy was gonna play all day long. And they played. They had fun.”

Washington was informed of Floyd’s death by her niece, and a close friend of Floyd’s would later confirm it.

“I watched it only for a moment,” Washington said of the bystander video showing Floyd’s death. “I couldn’t believe that somebody was on him like that. And then in that moment, you know, because I loved him so much I wanted to help him or I wish I could’ve been there to help him. And just hearing him begging for his life.”

In addition to the recent death of her mother, the death of Floyd is hard to talk about for Washington, especially with their daughter. But she faced that conversation when Gianna knew something was wrong.

“I had closed the door so I could watch the news. I went in the room and I said ‘Gianna, why did you open the door?’ She said ‘Something’s going on with my family,’” Washington told ABC News’ Eva Pilgrim. “She said ‘I hear them. I hear them saying my Daddy’s name.’”

Washington says she still hasn’t found the words to explain how her father died.

When asked what she’ll like to become, she said ““I know what I want to be when I grow up,” Gianna called out. “A doctor. So I can help people.”
