"I'm the first person she sees," Whitney told ET in 1993. "Her father [Bobby Brown] and I put her between us, and we talk to her, and she talks back, and she laughs. It's that bonding thing."

Whitney had brought Bobbi Kristina on tour just 4 months after giving birth.

"I have a crib on the bus," Whitney said. "There are bottles everywhere."

Whitney explained why it was so important to her to keep Bobbi Kristina close, telling ET at the time, "She's our inspiration for things that we do that we love most. Our children - this is what it's about."

On the set of Cinderella in 1997, Whitney couldn't contain her joy at the sight of little girl.

"She's growing up!" Whitney gushed.

Bobbi Kristina's life slowly fell apart when her parents split when she was 14. Things got worse when at 18 she lost her mother.

"I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me and telling me, 'Keep moving, baby,'" Bobbi Kristina told Oprah in 2012.

On Jan. 31, when Bobbi Kristina was found in a bathtub -- similarly to her mother -- it seemed that her life had completed a sad circle. While she was still in a coma, her grandmother Cissy Houston told ET that she held out little hope.

"She's not progressing at all," Cissy said. "She's not gone yet, but whatever the Lord decides, I'm ready for."

Bobbi Kristina died Sunday at age 22, surrounded by her family, at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia. She will be laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, where her mother is buried.

"She is finally at peace in the arms of God," the Houston family said in statement to ET. "We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

Bobby Brown also issued a statement following his daughter’s death.

"Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable," he said in a statement to ET. "We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."
