Jaleel White, the actor best known for his role a Steve Urkel on the sitcom “Family Matters,” took to Instagram to share a FaceTime screenshot of his daughter.


In the image, Samaya appeared on her bed wearing a light blue pajama while clearing her face. It was quite evident that she had just woken up. The actor was laughing at the top of the image, proving that it might have been a sort of joke.

For the caption, Jaleel wrote, “Knocking on bedroom doors is old school. Get ur butt outta bed and let’s goooooooo,” followed by the hashtags “Breakfast in Bed” and “Ya Lazy Bum” [sic].



As soon as the proud father uploaded that image, his followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.

"She looks so soooo much like you!" admitted one user.

“your daughter is definitely your twin! She is absolutely adorable,” shared a second follower.

“She’s the cutest little version of you!!” pointed out another person.



It is not the first time that Samaya has melted the hearts of Jaleel’s followers. A couple of weeks ago, the actor shared on Instagram a series of pics clearly happy because his daughter was “back home.”


In the photo, the almost 10-year-old girl appeared wearing dark pants and a pink jacket while Jaleel was in brown pants and black jacket hugging and kissing her on the top of her head.


Later, he uploaded another image showing Samaya sitting on his lap wearing the same outfits while eating from a bag of Cheetos. For the caption, the man wrote, “All the #mondaymotivation I need. Me and her need more Cheetos.”



Samaya’s mother is Bridget Hardy, an actress known for “The Pirates of Penzance.” The pair tied the knot in 2006 but their relationship ended by 2009. Things got a little rough between them in 2012 when Bridget accused Jaleel of cheating and violence.

However, he adamantly denied the claims. He stated that Bridget must have filed the suit as a “ploy” to get money from him. Jaleel added that he had never been arrested in his life and had no history of violence.

At the moment, the man is focused on giving his daughter the best possible time even though he and Bridget are no longer together.
