This past Father’s Day was exciting for several celebrity dads, including Jamie Foxx, whose daughter wowed him with an underwater present.
Jamie’s nine-year-old daughter Anelise Bishop went above-and-beyond this past weekend for her dad. Instead of saying “Happy Father’s Day,” the conventional way, the young lady let their outdoor pool do the talking.

The actor/comedian/singer took to Instagram to show off his pool with the words “Happy Father’s Day” spelled out at the bottom.

“My little one went all out this year on this special day. Thank u Anelise from the bottom of my soul!” an emotional Jamie wrote. “You just don’t know how good it feels. I looove uuu to infinity pool and beyond.”
The “Annie” star also shared several images from the family celebration that included “Happy Father’s Day” balloons and cake, as well as hugs from little Annelise.
“Still overjoyed by this Father’s Day,” Jamie captioned the slideshow. “My daughters are the best! [Corinne Foxx] I love u beyond. Anelise you send me soaring.”
Jamie (birth name Eric Marlon Bishop) is also dad to 25-year-old Corinne Foxx, with whom he co-hosts the Fox TV game show “Beat Shazam.”
Although there are reports of Anelise being born in October of 2009, Jamie referred to her as ten years old
“The two beautiful reasons I get up every day and do my best to make a better world,” Jamie wrote alongside a montage of picture moments with his daughters.
“There’s nothing I won’t do to make sure there are smiles and confidence placed upon my daughters... @corinnefoxx you continue to grow and achieve everything you want to accomplish... love eternal... and my little Anelise. You have already established that you are a creative, talented, athletic force to be reckoned with. I love you both!!!”
Jamie, 51, welcomed Corinne in February of 1994 with his military vet ex, Connie Kline. Although there are reports of Anelise being born in October of 2009, Jamie referred to her as ten years old in an Instagram video posted earlier this month and found below. Anelise's mother is another of the "Ray" actor's exes, Kristin Grannis.
Although it appears Jamie prefers his young daughter keeping a low profile, he has made a few public appearances with the beauty.
Anelise was the star of the show in 2015 when she tagged along with her famous dad to the Grammys. Then only five years old, Anelise posed for photos with music legends like Madonna, Paul McCartney of The Beatles, Jay-Z and LL Cool J.
During a TV appearance last November as well, Jamie gushed about his daughter playing football and basketball and taking on boys in the game.
“She’s killing it,” the “Django Unchained” star reportedly said. “She’s playing football with all the boys. She’s playing flag football, and she’s the only girl in the league.”
But Jamie was not the only celeb dad to have a fabulous Father’s Day. T.I Harris also got an emotional tribute from his wife, Tiny, and the rapper had the most epic reaction.
