Carrington Franklin has made quite a name for herself through her father, Kirk Franklin’s legendary gospel fame. The second child of Grammy-winning gospel singer, Kirk Franklin, and Tammy Franklin is all but an introvert when it comes to sharing her usual business on her weblogs.

Her social media just about tells all her personal affairs; be it her relationship with her father, husband, son, and even her siblings. In light of the mentioned fact, we can see Carrington being ever so in love with her husband, Maxx Nakwaasah.

But how did the love blossom in the first place? And where does the relationship stand as of the present? Also, is Carrington Franklin the favorite of her old man? Find the answers to all these in the following content.
