Daelyanna Benson On Raising a F***ing Star

No wonder, Daelyanna’s parents believed that she was born to be a star.
On the day of Raising a F***ing Star’s premiere (September 8, 2022), Daelyanna took it to her IG to share, “Tonight is the night, y’all. I’m both nervous and excited. #raisingafingstar @beatbycool @kelly.dedman”
