In the emotional video on Tuesday, Fetty Wap tearfully thanks fans for their support following the tragic news while showing off a picture of Lauren, whom he fathered with dancer and artist Turquoise Miami.

“She’s good. My baby’s happy now,” the 30-year-old said in the video.

“My shorty,” he added before kissing the sweet snap. “That’s my little twin right there.”

The rapper, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, then asked followers to post butterflies on his posts, which he explained were Lauren’s favourite animal.

“If y’all could do me a favour,” he said. “Just post all butterflies on my shit.”

“Shorty loved butterflies,” he added. “And if y’all could do that, it’d mean a lot to me.”

As fans began to flood the ‘Trap Queen’ rapper’s Live with butterflies, he became visibly emotional.

“That’s love. I appreciate ya’ll, for real. Damn,” he said. “That’s love. She’d be happy as hell.”

The news of Lauren’s death came when Turquoise posted the sad news to her Instagram account, captioning an image of the little girl: “This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius.

“If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself ‘i love you LAUREN’ because they say that souls can feel your love #rip.”

She added: “All that Y’all need to know is Lauren loved her daddy and he loved her.

“She made him laugh with her crazy funny personality and she loved to be the centre of attention and he loved to be her audience.”

As People report, Lauren was Fetty’s only child with Turquoise Miami. One of his most recent posts on Instagram was a slideshow for Father’s Day, featuring photos of his six children. “It’s them over anything or anybody,” he wrote.

In an Instagram stories post following his Rolling Loud performance in Miami last month, Fetty Wap seemingly alluded to his daughter’s passing. “LoLo daddy did that shit for you last night baby girl,” he wrote.

Lauren’s cause of death has not been shared by her family.

Fetty Wap appears to have responded following the news that his 4-year-old daughter, Lauren, has passed away.

The 30-year-old reportedly took to Instagram Live, per Hollywood Unlocked, to chat with fans after the sad news emerged. The clip started with the "My Way" hitmaker standing outside and wiping away tears as "Get You The Moon" by Kina played in the background.

After kissing a photo of Lauren, the rapper asked his fans to post "all butterflies," in tribute to her as a favor for him: "Show me a lot of butterflies."

He also showed a picture of his little girl to the camera while sitting in a car. "My little baby," he giggled.

Lauren’s passing was announced by her mother, Turquoise Miami, on Sunday, August 1.

"This is my amazing ,beautiful , funny , vibrant, loving ,talented , smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius. If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself 'i love you LAUREN' because they say that souls can feel your love #rip💔," Miami captioned a clip of her daughter playing in a pool.

"The internet had very negative energy towards our child which bought me distress reading, so please stop any negativity towards him," she pleaded. "Lauren love her daddy too just like she love me and he mourning hard just like me."
