Damon Wayans Sr. and Rev. Run's 4-year-old granddaughter Ava Marie Jean is a spitting image of her mom Vanessa Simmons in a new photo she posted.


Vanessa Simmons gave birth to a baby girl on February 13, 2014, which she shares with Mike Wayans. Although the Wayans blood runs strong, the Simmons blood runs stronger in Ava's veins as she looks like her mom's mini-me.

It's not just Damon Wayans Sr. who is Ava's famous grandfather, as even her mom's dad is quite well-known as Run D.M.C.'s Joseph Simmons.

In a previous interview with US Weekly regarding her pregnancy, Simmons and Wayans revealed that they were expecting when she was already five months along.


"We are both very excited about the birth of our first child. We totally were expecting it to be [a] boy all along but got very surprised when we found out it was indeed a girl. I immediately went out and brought a cute [little] outfit for her right after the appointment."

As for how their families reacted to the pregnancy, Vanessa shares that she was at first extremely nervous to let her dad know. However, at the end of the day, both sides of their families had anxiously waited for the arrival of the beautiful baby girl.


"I was so nervous telling my dad at first being that I'm not married YET but he was very excited and is supportive 100 percent. His concern is just that I'm happy. Both families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new baby girl. She's coming into two huge families waiting to give her lots of love."

Now that Ava is four-years-old, she looks exactly like her beautiful mama and is a natural in front of the camera. It would come as no surprise when the little girl chooses to enter show business just like her parents.

Vanessa and Mike Wayans met on MTV's "Run's House" which aired from 2005 to 2009. They have been together for more than 12 years.
