According to Closerweekly, Debbie's son, DeVaughn Nixon, recently took to Instagram to share a cute photo of him holding his niece in his hands. Fans of Debbie not only hit the like button but they also took to the comment section to drop sweet words for the duo.

One fan went as far as

tagging

Debbie in the post while stating,

"You have a beautiful granddaughter! I can't believe you have post this beautiful baby."

Debbie won the hearts of many when she played the role of "Clair Huxtable" in the popular TV series "The Cosby Show," which ran from 1984 to 1992. But that's not all the 69-year-old did as she went on to become a multi-talented actress, dancer, choreographer, and director.

Additionally, the actress has two "Tony Awards" on her achievement belt. In 1980, she won the first award in for her role in the Broadway revival of "West Side Story."

She won the second Tony six years later after she played the lead role in Bob Fosse's revival of the musical "Sweet Charity."

After making her mark on Broadway and in dance, the mother-of-three opened the "Debbie Allen Dance Academy" in Los Angeles.

The academy started as a nonprofit school which offers a comprehensive dance curriculum to students. The academy paid no attention to the financial status of its students.

But Debbie isn't the only member of her family to make a name for herself. Her sister, Phylicia Rashad, is also famous amongst "theatre folks."

Speculation has it that the sister's zeal might have something to do with being raised by a Pulitzer Prize-nominated mother, the poet Vivian Ayers, and a theater fanatic dentist father, Andrew Arthur Allen Jr.

The sisters have gone on to imbibe the same values into their children as Vivian Nixon, and Condola the duo's daughters

claim

:

"We were included in whatever they were doing, and I aspired to that level of professionalism and love for what they do. I was in the bassinet under the piano during Fame."
