"Family Matters'" Kellie S. Williams who played "Laura Winslow" on the sitcom is currently doing great as a devoted wife and mom to her two beautiful kids.


Kellie, now 41-year-old is married to Hannibal Jackson and they have two beautiful children daughter, Hannah Belle and son, John Ervin Jackson.


After retiring from acting, Kellie became a stay at home mom while her husband works full time. She manages the household, cooks, cleans, and raise her adorable kids. 

The actress who loves to gush about her children, Hannah Belle and John Ervin Jackson recently shared a picture of them on her Instagram account. The kids were dressed up for school and they looked adorable in their cute uniforms.


Kellie captioned the photo, 

"1st day of a new school year! #blessed." 

The former actress' followers took to the comment section to shower praises on her kids. A fan wrote,

"Aww beautiful kids, have a great year. God bless you both, waving from New Jersey."



"Have a good day at school little princess and little prince," wrote another fan while a third person said, "Omg they are so cute, you have sweet kids." 

Kellie has a great personality and she once described herself and her husband as complete opposites. According to her, she's the "upper" and he's the "downer." He is always calm and cool while she is the bubbly one. 

Thanks to their distinct behaviors, their marriage has lasted for ten years and the couple is still going strong.


Besides being devoted to her family, Kellie is also involved in public speaking and various charities, including the "Kellie Williams Program." She founded the program in 2006, providing students in the D.C. metro area with an opportunity to produce a television show for Comcast.

In one of her public speeches, Kellie talked about her philanthropic side and the reason for her generosity.

"We all get to that age when we ask, 'What have I done for anyone else?' I was compelled to help others. Now my business helps teens in Washington, D.C., create programming for themselves and their peers," she said. 


Speaking about those her organization has worked with over the years she said,

"We have worked with CNN and other businesses. I hope more people become involved with our young people because they are left to raise themselves, essentially. I was exposed to adults that give back."

Till date, Kellie continues to speak with teen and youth groups across the nation on a variety of subjects, including "Peer Pressure and How to Achieve Greatness in the Entertainment Industry."

Even with all of her fantastic work, Kellie loves being a mother to her two kids and also, being the best wife she could to her husband, Hannibal. Family does matter after all!
