Dondre Whitfield, best known as Robert, Vanessa Huxtable’s boyfriend on “The Cosby Show,” has been sharing photos on his Instagram account showing his children.

One of them showed him and his daughter, Parker, next to the actor’s two “Baller Babies.” In the caption, Dondre admitted that he took the three girls to the Warner Bros. studios while he did “some ADR” for the OWN TV show “Queen Sugar.”

After that, they spent some quality time eating, talking, and watching a movie together in what seemed to be a fun day.

“I see so much promise for their future and the trajectory of their life. I want them and my other Firestormz baller babies to know that I will always be their coach and a Man they can always depend on,” added Dondre.
