Van Johnson has been making some big changes this season on Black Ink Crew: Chicago. One thing he didn’t have to change, though, is the amazing relationship with his daughter Bri.

Van is a single dad and has been raising Bri by himself for years. It’s worth noting that he’s doing an incredible job and Bri is growing up to be a lovely young woman.

While she’s not a star on Black Ink Crew: Chicago, Bri does make appearances from time to time and viewers have grown to love her. So much so that many of us keep tabs on what’s new with Van’s daughter as if she is a regular member of the show.

Bri has a boyfriend now and even that has been shared with fans who follow Van on Instagram. The young man’s name is Aaron and he looks a pretty decent kid.

That didn’t stop Van from getting the family together to let Bri’s new boyfriend know that she’s not one to mess with. Part serious and part playing around, at least Aaron knows that Bri’s dad is watching and he better not try anything slick.

Back when Van and girlfriend Jenn had their big blowout ever, over her Snapchat nip slip, it was Bri who tried her best to get them back together. First, she suggested that her dad send flowers to Jenn every day and when he shot that idea down, she suggested a prom proposal to bring Jenn back.

It’s pretty clear that Bri is very special to Van and beloved by many Black Ink Crew: Chicago viewers. Don’t be too surprised if she starts popping up on the show more often as she gets older.

Black Ink Crew: Chicago airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on VH1.
