The old picture featured Tisha as a toddler. She was dressed in a checked onesie and an adorable bun. Clifton held his baby girl on one arm, looking dashing in a denim and tweed outfit.

The young girl and her father looked cute together as Clifton held his daughter close to his chest, and they posed for the snapshot.

Fans and followers of the actress took to the comment section of the post to join Tisha in wishing her father well on his special day, also noting how cute she looked back in the day.

In 1997, the sitcom, "Martin," in which Tisha Campbell and popular actor and comedian Martin Lawrence co-starred, ended. This was brought on by Campbell's decision to file a lawsuit against Lawrence.

She claimed to have been harassed by the actor, both onset and offset.  She accused him of sexual battery, verbal abuse, groping, and even an attempt to kiss her.

Over two decades after the messy and unpleasant raucous caused by the harassment claim, the 55-year-old actor opened up about that period in his life. Lawrence denied the accusations and said:

"None of that was true. We don’t need to talk about something that just didn’t happen. So I just decided to walk away from the show."

The actor clarified that it had been his own decision to walk away from the series, and contrary to everyone else’s opinion, he had not been fired or canceled from the show.

Campbell has since moved on from that unpleasant time in her life, and almost twenty years after, she released a new music video more than twenty years after her last. 

The song was centered around rape and an apology letter she received from her rapist. Tisga revealed that she was raped when she was three years old.

The "House Party" star added that she had found forgiveness in the guilt that she felt, knowing that she had done nothing wrong.

The actress has, since, moved on and built a better career for herself. In 1996, she tied the knot with actor Duane Martin whom she later parted ways with in 2018. They had two sons.
