"Happy birthday to my baby Mariah Epps. Your 15 years old today. Funny, smart, cool, and beautiful! I love you Mo mo."
The post attracted lots of positive comments from fans of the proud father who joined him in wishing her a great day, a fan exclaimed:
"Happy Birthday! Enjoy!!"
Mariah is Epps' first daughter from his union with Mechelle McCain, his former wife from 2006 till 2017. Asides her, he is a proud father to three other girls, Madison, Makayla, and Bria — with Madison being the youngest of them.
The "Next Friday" star recently admitted to People that, he has no favorites among his daughter and that he loves them equally.
Snoop Dogg skipped the BET award ceremony just to come to his wedding.
"They're all No. 1 in my eyes, they're all really good girls and really, really smart. I've been blessed," Mike Epps stated.
According to Epps, his daughters played a big part in how he has chosen to live his life, he even revealed that they had a profound effect on the kind of music he listens to.
He was reportedly fond of listening to old hip hop songs that often referred to women with crude names but all that changed when he became a father.
Last year, the actor had an interview with The Breakfast Club, where he opened up on how he felt about being on tour and getting married again. He also discussed things like politics and his Netflix special, "Only One Mike."
Talking about politics, Epps comically declared that he stopped following politics since Ronald Reagan left the White House.
When the topic shifted to his marriage, which took place a week before the interview, he revealed that rapper, Snoop Dogg skipped the BET award ceremony just to come to his wedding.
An action that endeared him to his heart as he could be seen referring to the famous music icon as a "good friend." Epps is currently married to OWN Network executive and "Iyanla: Fix My Life" producer, Kyra Robinson.
