Remember Brenda Jenkins On "227"? Her Son Looks Just like Her & Recently Celebrated His 23rd B-Day

Actress Regina King was accompanied to the prestigious Golden Globe awards by her handsome 23-year-old son.

The girl most people remember as Brenda Jenkins on the TV series "227" has come into her own and is now revealed as one of the great actresses of her generation.

Jenkins stepped out at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards on the arm of the man of her life, 23-year son Ian Alexander Jr.

BEST MOM, BEST ACTRESS

King had been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "If Beale Street Could Talk" but all eyes were on her young son.

Alexander revealed to Ryan Seacrest that his mother isn't just a great actress, she is also a  "super mom." 

King played the role of a Harlem mother whose pregnant daughter's fiancé is accused of rape

REGINA KING'S HANDSOME SON

Alexander, who boasts his mom's good looks and wide smile, rocked a classic black tux with a Time's Up pin at the Golden Globes red carpet:

"Time's up. Just for women having equality and safety in the workplace, and all individuals. So, that's really important to me, especially having a powerful woman... they rule the world."

CELEBRATING HIS MOTHER'S TRIUMPH

Alexander was sitting beside his mom when the fateful announcement was made and clapped enthusiastically when she ascended to receive the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.

FROM COMEDY TO DRAMA

If Regina King was celebrated for her comedic gifts, now she is recognized for her dramatic abilities. King played the role of a Harlem mother whose pregnant daughter's fiancé is accused of rape. 

AND AN ACADEMY AWARD TO CROWN REGINA KING

For King, award season started off with a victory at the Golden Globes, and she crowned the year's achievements with the most prestigious award of all: an Oscar.

King attended the Academy Awards accompanied by her mother and was understandably emotional when she received her coveted golden statuette.

She beat out some formidable competition, Marina de Tavira for "Roma," Amy Adams for "Vice," and Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone for "The Favorite."
