George Floyd's Six-Year-Old Daughter Gianna & Her Mom Roxie Give Heartbreaking Interview on 'GMA'

George Floyd‘s six-year-old daughter Gianna and Gianna‘s mother Roxie Washington gave a heartbreaking interview on Good Morning America on Wednesday (June 3) to discuss his murder at the hands of a white police officer.

“He just wanted her to have the best,” Roxie said of George‘s love for his daughter. “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.”

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

“I watched it only for a moment,” Roxie 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.”

She was asked if Gianna understood what had happened to her father, and Roxie said,”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.’ She said ‘I hear them. I hear them saying my Daddy’s name.’”

“She doesn’t know what happened. I told her Daddy died because he couldn’t breathe,” Roxie added.

Gianna was asked about what she wants everyone to know about her dad, and she responded, “I miss him.”
