Famous stand-up comedian, Tony Rock is now a father — he took to social media to share an adorable picture of his newborn son.
The 45-year-old actor took to his Instagram page, on Monday, with a heartwarming photo of the baby sleeping peacefully, swaddled in blankets.
Rock, who is the younger brother of comedian Chris Rock, is yet to reveal his child's name and the identity of his child's mother for reasons yet unknown. The proud dad captioned the post,
"I've been so incredibly overwhelmed with emotions I couldn't find the words, One of my favorite scriptures will be more than sufficient."
Speechless, Rock then added an excerpt from his favorite passage from the Bible, which centered on how a father should raise his son.
Comedy reportedly runs in the genes of the Rock family.
Fans of the famous comedian took to the comments section with congratulatory comments and advice as they welcomed him to the beautiful world of fatherhood — "a child is a game-changer," they warned.
Rock was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Rosalie and Julius Rock. He grew up in Brooklyn and asides Chris Rock, he has six other brothers and two sisters.
Comedy reportedly runs in the genes of the Rock family — Tony and his younger brother, Jordan, have followed in the footsteps of their older brother Chris, who is the second-born of eight siblings.
Tony Rock credits growing up with a lot of siblings with aiding him and his famous brother Chris in cultivating a great sense of humor.
