Martin, 54, has a blended family, but it appears the actor/comedian was only able to spend Thanksgiving with Jasmine, who he fondly calls his "big baby girl."

The "Martin" star took to Instagram last week with two pictures of him and Jasmine hanging out. In one snapshot, the Duke University graduate kissed her dad on the cheek, prompting a big smile from him.

Fans in the comment section shared their thoughts, mostly bordering on Jasmine's beauty and the father-daughter duo's close relationship.

"Beautiful young lady," one Instagram user said of Martin's 23-year-old daughter.

Jasmine has been in the spotlight all her life, but the young lady has been getting increased attention in recent times, especially after Martin shared a video of the two battling it out on his indoor basketball court.

The college graduate is the only child Martin shares with his first ex-wife, Patricia Southall. Martin and Patricia were married from 1995 to 1997. The latter has now been married to NFL star Emmitt Smith since 2000.

The same year his first marriage ended, Martin began a relationship with Shamicka, whom he eventually married in 2010. Two years later, however, the marriage ended in divorce. The actor and Shamicka have two daughters: Iyanna, 19, and Amara, 17.

Martin is currently in a relationship with Roberta Moradfar, a nurse whom he proposed to in 2017. The "Big Momma's House" legend often expresses his love for Roberta via social media.

Despite the blended nature of Martin's family, it appears everyone genuinely gets along. Last year, the whole clan turned up to celebrate Jasmine, who graduated with honors from Duke University.

In September of this year, Martin sent off another daughter – this time, Iyanna – to college. There were no hard feelings as the comic joined Shamicka to help move their daughter into her dorm room at Sarah Lawrence College.

Looks like Martin and his exes have all found the key to successful co-parenting!
