Malcolm-Jamal Warner melts hearts with rare photo of curly-haired daughter sitting in his chair
Malcolm-Jamal Warner, better known by many for his role as Theo Huxtable in “The Cosby Show,” is now the proud father of a lovely little girl. He recently melted hearts with an adorable pic of his daughter and an even more heartwarming caption.
Warner, who’s currently giving life to Dr. AJ Austin on Fox’s medical drama “The Resident,” recently took to Instagram to share an adorable pic of his 1-year-old daughter, whose name and face remain unveiled to the public, sitting on his chair on set.
The curly haired toddler wore a sleeveless white dress with flowers printed on it, and matching white sandals, as she took over her dad’s seat at the series’ set, which had his name printed on it. Malcolm couldn't stop gushing about his girl, and captioned the post:
“Anything that is mine quickly becomes hers. My food. My heart. My choice of music in the car. And, yes, even my chair at work. My dad says the car keys are next, but those are pretty much hers too. She loves pressing the red panic button to make the horn go off. Yep, #imawrap #wrappedaroundherfinger.”
Fans of the actor and director took over his comment section to share their thoughts on the pic, with most agreeing that Michael’s daughter looks like a doll.
“@gbaby1732: @malcolmjamalwar What a Doll Baby. Blessings to you!!”
“@desiremydream: Adorable!! She's your lil Princess for sure.”
“@mslesa426: Could NOT be more INCREDIBLY happy for u!!! Fatherhood looks great on u!!! Congrats, to u AND her mother...on this beautiful, MOST precious gift!! #wow #theosaDADyall.”

There's something quite thrilling about playing bass and singing Happy Birthday to my daughter on her 1st birthday. And there's something equally as thrilling knowing that the challenges that come w being parents of a newborn has only exponentially increased the great love we shared before our daughter was born. I am humbled, grateful, and inspired.🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 (And I also recognize that this 1st year may be the easiest we're ever going to have it! 😐😳🙂🤣🙂😍) #Peace&Love #lovedbabiesarehappybabies #happymommy #happydaddy #gratitudegang #gratitude #gratitudeallday
KEEPING HIS FAMILY AWAY FROM THE SPOTLIGHT
Warner, 48, has kept his wife and daughter’s identities away from the spotlight, and he recently revealed his reasons in a visit to Wendy Williams’ show.
“I have a lifetime for that, and I know it’s going to happen eventually, so I want to keep her as much under the radar as I can,” he told the seasoned host about no posting the girl’s face on social media.
He also revealed that he works hard in his career and equally as hard to maintain a private life. He didn’t even share pics of his wedding or, for that matter, said when he got married. But he’s a dedicated husband and father and says he’s “living his best life” these days.
BEAUTIFUL FATHER-DAUGHTER MOMENTS
Just a few months ago, he delighted fans with a clip of him dancing with his girl in their kitchen. Warner had no pants on, as he explained the video was impromptu and he was in the middle of cleaning some dishes when his daughter asked to be held in “a low key whiney 14-month-old way.”
“But then I stopped what I was doing bc she didn't care about a messy kitchen. All she wanted was for her daddy to hold her. Something that simple makes my daughter happy. Something THAT simple. And it was a moment I didn't want to take for granted. We told Alexa to shuffle songs by @thejacksons, and we had our own impromptu kitchen dance party.”
Some fans criticized Warner for dancing around in his underwear, so, in response, he shared another dancing clip, this time around fully clothed. Although he made sure to mention he wasn’t trying to please the haters, he just “happened to be dressed when this joint came on.”
