Hollywood actor Omari Hardwick and his wife took out time to celebrate the 5th birthday of their young son on social media.


It was a jolly day for the Hardwicks who amid the Coronavirus phenomenon, gave shootouts to their lovely sin as he became a year older.

Both taking to their Instagram pages, the proud parents showed their unconditional love for the celebrant while melting the hearts of fans. On her page, Jae Hardwick put up a pleasing video of her son while she accompanied the clip with a lengthy write-up.

[Omari Hardwick] once had dreams of becoming an NFL star, but after drafting, he wasn't picked. At this point, Hardwick began his journey to stardom in Hollywood.


The video which was set to Slow-Motion showed the young boy having fun while testing his jumping skills on a toy. In her caption, the devoted mom wrote to her baby boy:

"Happy 5th birthday! Our Buffalo of a Brave boy! You, my young king, are more powerful than your years on this earth. Your wide insight astounds me…"


The super psyched mom shared a pre-birthday post, which was a throwback image of Brave when he was still in her womb.

The photo showed the then expectant mother's rounded baby bump, which was 32 weeks at the time. In her caption, Jae reminisced on her inception period and showed gratitude for her son's birthday.

"Power" star, Omari, also made a shout out of his own on Instagram, as he was in tune with his wife. He shared a throwback photo of when Brave had just been born.


In the photo, the excited father cradled his baby boy in his arms while his face showed profound happiness. Just like Jae's, Omari Hardwick's caption was also lengthy as he marked his baby boy's day.

The couple might be basking in parenthood these days, but it wasn't always like that. There was a time when the Harwicks suffered a loss. They lost a baby at birth. 


According to BDO, the "For Colored Girls" star opened up on his Essence show, "I Turn My Camera On." There, Hardwick shared the pain of losing a child with Lance Gross, who has been through such a loss as well.

Most people know Omari Hardwick as the superstar who has taken roles in several blockbuster movies, but this talented act did have hard times.


According to OprahMag, the "Being Mary Jane" actor once had dreams of becoming an NFL star, but after drafting, he wasn't picked. At this point, Hardwick began his journey to stardom in Hollywood.

Further reported by Oprah Mag, Omari had the undiluted support of his loving wife, Jae Pfautch Hardwick. The mom-of-two was among the driving forces which saw her hubby taking the lead role in the acclaimed TV series "Power."
