Jaimee Foxworth from "Family Matters" is now a gorgeous 40-year-old, and she has a look-alike son she loves and adores.


Jaimee Foxworth from "Family Matters" recently took to her Instagram page to share a throwback picture of her only son, Michael Douglas Shaw, Jr.

The picture which was taken in black and white featured a very young Michael lying on his back with a broad smile on his face.

The 40-year-old single mother captioned the post with a simple "TBT," followed by an emoji of the earth. The throwback photo comes a couple of weeks after Foxworth shared a photo that featured a slightly older and more handsome Michael.

In the shot, the boy who is now aged 11 looked handsome in Nike-designed tops and bottoms as he struck a stylish pose with his hands in his pockets.

For footwear, he had on red laced black sneakers with white soles. "No pictures....#illMichael," Foxworth captioned the post.


Foxworth, who is an American actress and model is best known for her role as "Judy Winslow," the youngest daughter of Carl and Harriette Winslow on the long-running sitcom, "Family Matters."

Jaimee's major turning point didn't come until she learned that she was expecting a child.

The child actress's character got written off after the fourth season, leaving her unemployed at a young age, and from there, things had gone downhill for the young actress.


She later turned to substance abuse to deal with the pressure of being a child in the public eye, and at 19, she ventured into pornography to make ends meet. Even after she departed from the porn industry, she still struggled with drugs and alcohol.

Later in 2008, she was featured on several episodes on "Celebrity Rehab," where she revealed that she had started weaning herself off the drugs and alcohol.


Though she had enrolled in rehab, her major turning point didn't come until she learned that she was expecting a child with Michael Shaw, her long time boyfriend. She revealed to "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" that,

"I was like, If you just give me the healthiest son, I will stop today. I stopped. And I haven't had a craving since."

Her son, Michael Douglas Shaw, was born on May 29, 2009. He was reportedly ten days overdue and weighed in at 6lbs., 11 oz., and was 19 inches long.

Now, she has grown into a sober, amazing woman who is in control of her life and is raising her son as a responsible parent.
