From child star to a loving mom

The "Kids" have all grown up, and fans of the series would be hard put to recognize Michael Jr., Franklin, Claire or little Kady.

Freeman is now the doting mom of Isabella Amora Watson whom she shares with ex-husband, basketball coach Earl Watson.


Recovering from a failed marriage

Freeman married Watson in 2009, and the couple divorced in 2015, amidst a bitter dispute, which included allegations of domestic abuse. Freeman was awarded custody of the couple's only child, Isabella.

Isabella Watson co-starred with her famous actress mom in a Christmas romantic comedy, "Throwback Holiday."


Following in her mom's footsteps

In December 2018, Freeman announced her daughter's acting debut on her Instagram page, starring alongside her mom in a Christmas movie:

"My daughter Isabella makes her acting debut tonight! Check her out tonight in Throwback Holiday on @bet at 8pm. ❤️"


Proud mom of a budding actress

Freeman is clearly proud of her lovely and intelligent daughter, and it looks as if young Isabella is on her way to consolidating an acting career.

Isabella is a lot like her famous mom, and not just in her good looks. We look forward to seeing a lot more of this young lady in the future.
