Jaleel White from "Family Matters" shares pictures of his daughter Samya, calling himself a proud "girl dad." The term recently went viral following the death of Kobe Bryant, who was a self-proclaimed "girl dad."


Jaleel White has always kept his love life private, he definitely isn't private when it comes to his daughter. The proud dad constantly shares pictures of Samaya White on his Instagram page, proving the love he has for the little girl.

The "Family Matters" actor shares his daughter with ex-girlfriend Bridget Hardy, who later on claimed that she was cheated on and abused in their relationship, which Jaleel later on denied and said was a "ploy" to receive money.

However, despite the complicated relationship between the ex-lovers, they put their daughter's best interest first at all times. In fact, Jaleel already knows that his daughter will be a better version of him.

"I promise she will be better than me in every way. How did she turn so cool so fast? Sheesh #Samaya #GirlDad"



The proud father shared two new pictures of his little girl, one of her looking extra "cool" in a black and pink outfit looking straight at the camera, and another of the father-and-daughter duo leaning back against each other.

The term "Girl Dad" has been going around recently, and it's all because of an emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant that revealed his pride in being the father of four girls.



Kobe had always been a family man, and ESPN newscaster Ellen Duncan revealed that during the first and only time she met him, he was gushing about being a "girl dad."

At the time, Duncan asked if he and his wife Vanessa Bryant were willing to try for another baby even if it meant having another girl, he replied with a smile on his face, saying:

"I would have five more girls if I could. I'm a girl dad."



Indeed, people used to question whether or not Kobe and Vanessa hoped to have a boy, especially to carry on the Bryant legacy in the NBA.

To Kobe, he didn't have a son, because he had his girls to carry on that legacy for him. In fact, his daughter Gianna was training hard to follow in her dad's footsteps.



Heartbreakingly, Kobe and Gianna passed away in a horrific helicopter crash in Calabasas California, as they were on the way to the Mamba Basketball Academy in Thousand Oaks with seven other people.

Now, the world mourns their passing, and millions of people have been sending their love and condolences to the Bryant family during this difficult time.
