Marlon Wayans of "The Wayans Bros" shares a picture of his mom Elvira, who is the epitome of strength for raising ten children.
Marlon Wayans made sure to pay tribute to his mom Elvira on Mother's Day, acknowledging the difficult job she did raising him and the rest of his siblings. Through it all, he claims his mom managed to make all ten of them feel special and loved.
"Her biting sense of humor is the Wayans brand. I'm the baby of the bunch and I'm born on her birthday, July 23. Born a prince to a queen. And that's why I smile."
SHOWING LOVE TO MOM
Despite everything that his mom has done for him and the rest of the family, Marlon claims that all his mom ever wanted was love. Knowing this, he's made it a point to show her just that while she's around.
Ultimately, the actor thanked his mom for everything, especially for making him smile. Because of all that she's done for him, he's able to love just as hard and spread it to everyone around.
A FAMILY AFFAIR
Marlon Wayans has achieved a lot in his years of being an actor and comedian, but even after everything, he draws strength and inspiration from his family. Before reaching fame through his highly successful projects, he and the rest of his family came from humble beginnings and he constantly remembers that.

Thanks to his brother Keenan Ivory Wayans, he paved the way for many of the Wayans children to show their talent to the world and achieve fame as well. His brother is responsible for directing Marlon's blockbuster movie "Scary Movie," which became the highest-grossing film ever directed by an African-American before "Get Out."
A THOUGHTFUL WARNING
Although he's kept things quiet in the past couple of months, Marlon continues to stay active on social media. Recently, the actor urged families to stay at home and stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"To all my people, please BE SAFE!!! This virus is REAL. This message is for everyone but especially black folks. Covid is hitting our community at a 7 to 1 ratio. Please stay home and wash your hands often."
While he's chosen to stay at home to take care of himself and his family amid these difficult times, he is set to appear alongside Jennifer Hudson on the highly-anticipated "Respect" biopic on the life of Aretha Franklin.
