Jaleel White and his daughter had the most fun dressing up for Halloween, and the excited dad shared their moments on Instagram.


Most folks remember Jaleel as the mischievous nerd from “Family Matters” who was hopelessly in love with Laura Winslow.


These days, he is a 41-year-old dad who has appeared in over 60 movies and TV series. But as he said in an interview last year, the one who made the most profound impact on his life is his nine-year-old daughter, Samaya White.

It was with his special little lady that Jaleel dressed up for Halloween in fun costumes. In one of the photos shared by the actor, Samaya was a cute clown in her black dress, a painted face, and flowing hair.


The beauty held on to a pumpkin-shaped bucket while Jaleel posed beside her in a Waffle T-shirt. He paired the outfit with white jeans and held on to a syrup bottle because, of course, he’s a waffle!

Another snapshot showed Samaya up-close, and even with the clown painting, her radiant smile shone through. Jaleel was also pictured with another clown, this time and this one was quite scary, unlike Samaya.


Jaleel and Samaya do almost everything together, so it only makes sense that the father-daughter duo decided to make some amazing Halloween memories together. One look at Jaleel’s Instagram page is enough to convince anyone of how much his daughter means to him.


Last year, when friends and family threw a surprise birthday party for the “Psych” actor, Samaya took front and center, celebrating with her dad and at one point, bursting impressive dance moves on the floor.

The young lady was also with her father in Albuquerque, New Mexico last month on the set of a new film. Working did not stop Jaleel from hanging out with his daughter, who used the opportunity to learn a thing or two about cameras.


The journey to their blissful daddy-daughter bond was not the smoothest. Jaleel and Samaya’s mother, Bridget Hardy, had a rocky past and in 2012, their messy fallout played out in the media for all to see.

Bridget accused Jaleel of cheating and domestic violence, and the actor denied the accusations, claiming that Bridget filed a lawsuit against him to get more money.

Eventually, that storm passed, and since then, Jaleel has been content to dote on his only daughter.
