Roxie Washington, the mother of George Floyd's six-year-old daughter, has spoken out -- praising him as a father.

 "He was a good man as a father. He was so happy to have her," Roxie said during news conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

George and Roxie were not in a relationship in the days leading up to his murder, but she says he was still very present in both of their lives.

"He was there. He slept the whole time that I went through labor but when he heard her cry, he got up. He woke up and I still have a picture of him waking up getting his baby," Roxie continued. 

"He loved her. He loved her so much -- He still took care of us. We lived here but we still had that connection and he still took care of us. He provided for us."

Roxie wants justice for the father of her child.

"I want every body to know that this is what those officers took from [her] and at the end of the day, they get to go home and be with their families. Gianna does not have a father. He will never see her grow up, graduate, he will never walk her down the aisle. If there's a problem and she needs her dad, she does not have that anymore," she said, breaking down in tears.
