Jaleel White and his daughter glow with happiness after choosing Christmas tree in new photo
Actor Jaleel White, best known as Steve Urkel in “Family Matters,” took to Instagram to share a slideshow of himself and his daughter choosing a Christmas tree.
In the first image, the man appeared wearing a plaid shirt and sunglasses while his daughter, Samaya, was next to him in a grey hoodie smiling at the camera. The second part of the slideshow was a boomerang video portraying a man lifting the big tree Jaleel chose.
For the caption, the actor wrote, “The tree is securrrr,” followed by a pine’s emoji. As soon as Jaleel posted that milestone, his followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
One of them pointed out that Jaleel and Samaya looked like twins, while others said that the actor’s smile was lovely. “Can't wait to see the tree after y'all decorate it [sic]” added another user.
As BCK Online reported, the actor and his daughter spent some time in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in September this year, when Jaleel was working on a movie called “Faithfully.” In one of the photos he uploaded to his Instagram account, the girl appeared behind the camera looking like a professional director.
Even though Jaleel has kept as many aspects of his romantic life under the wraps, it is known that Samaya’s mother is Bridget Hardy, who allegedly started dating the actor around 2006. In 2012, Bridget accused him of cheating and being violent.
Jaleel denied her allegations saying that Bridget filed the suit as a “ploy” to get money from him. The actor added that he had never been arrested in his life and that he had no history of violence. Allegedly, there was “a dollar amount” pushed across the table. “Pay this, and everything goes away,” said Jaleel.
Thankfully, the relationship the actor and Samaya have has not been affected as his Instagram feed has a lot of adorable father-and-daughter moments. For Halloween, the duo got on one of the funniest costumes ever.
In one of the photos that Jaleel uploaded, Samaya portrayed a cute Catrina in a black dress while holding a pumpkin-shaped bucket. The proud father, on the other hand, posed next to her in a waffle T-shirt, white pants, and, of course, a syrup bottle.
Another snapshot showed Samaya up-close, and even with the Catrina painting, her radiant smile shone through. Jaleel was also pictured with a quite scary clown.
