Together, the duo was filmed gazing up at a helicopter, with Lewis asking the little boy to say the word, which he obediently does. It appears they were at the Los Angeles Women's March, and the little boy spent some time with his Aunt Jenifer.
After a while, Lewis begins singing the "Happy Birthday" song, asking the little boy to say "Happy Birthday Jenifer." In the end, he gives the actress a kiss and Jordin Sparks pops up to say hi for a bit.

Through her caption, she shared with fans that it's important to stay healthy and active regardless of age.
"Stay healthy and active whether you're 3 or 63. High kicking my way into another amazing year of life!"

Having kept journals all her life, Lewis always wanted to write a book. Thanks to the internet and her great following which she's acquired through the years, she felt it was necessary to inspire or entertain people to pursue their dreams.
“As I say in the book — I feel that I owe my story in the hope that it will inspire or entertain people — young, old, gay, women, whoever — to pursue their dream. Especially now, when we are in the midst of this enormous struggle for civil rights and for the environment.”
Meanwhile, while Lewis has done so much in her life already, her little friend DJ is only beginning his journey. The first son of singer Jordin Sparks and Dana Isaiah is well-loved by many people, and that's all thanks to his adorable and easy-going attitude so far.
