'These are the only pics I have of Whitney and I. I’m pregnant with Jaden. She came to my baby shower,' Jada remembered in the collage's caption.

'Whitney was so sweet, so fierce ... so real. She was funny and fun and so ... present. As talented and famous as she was ... she didn’t wear it on her sleeve. 

'Not many of us in this business can claim that ... not even myself at certain points in my life,' she continued. 'She was so down to earth... that’s what I admired about her most.

Jada added: If only we could have celebrated her more while she was here. You are missed Whitney.'

In the pics, Whitney is dressed all in white, while a very pregnant Jada is head-to-toe in black.

The actress also rocks an almost skin-tight blonde Hairdo.

While Jaden would be Jada's first, Whitney's only daughter — Bobbi Kristina Brown — would have been turning five around the time the pictures were taken.

Just 14 years later, Whitney would accidentally drown in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton, with a cocktail of drugs in her system.

Just three years after that, Bobbi Kristina tragically died in hauntingly similar circumstances to her mother; she was placed in a medically-induced coma after being face-down in a bathtub, and died six months later.
