Omar Gooding, the younger brother of "American Crime Story" actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is also involved in the entertainment industry! He has two sons who look just like him.


Although Omar is the least-known member of the Gooding family, he is still a very talented actor with a successful career spanning over three decades.

The first time that he appeared in front of the cameras was in 1988 when he took a minor role in the TV show "Webster." He was only 12 years old.

From that point on, Omar kept landing parts in projects like "Wild & Crazy Kids," "The Royal Family," and "Blossom." His career skyrocketed in 1992, though, when portrayed Earvin in the ABC series "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" for five years.


After working in "Smart Guy" and voicing a character in the animated series "Batman Beyond," Omar landed the part of Sweetpea in the 2001 film "Baby Boy," where he truly showed all his skills.

The actor managed to attract a lot of attention and receive good praise for his performance even though he was acting opposite Tyrese Gibson, Taraji P. Henson, and Snoop Dogg.


Cuba Gooding Jr.'s brother has kept himself very busy in the entertainment industry over the years. One of his most famous and recent shows is "Family Time," where he has been portraying Tony Stallworth since 2012.

Apart from that, he is expected to appear in a handful of projects in the future, including "The Shaw," "Humble Pie," "Blood Sacrifice," and "A Day of Trouble."

As per his love life, Omar Gooding has been romantically involved with two women (at least publicly). One of them is actress Angell Conwell, who portrays his wife in "Family Time."

The former couple met each other in the set of "Baby Boy," and as Omar revealed, they "clicked" fairly quickly. They dated for about three or four years and remain close nowadays.


At the moment, he is married to Mia Vogel. Even though the details of their relationship are scarce, it is known that they have two sons together, and they look just like Omar!

Their first kid, Omar Dari Gooding Jr., was born on January 27, 2017. According to the Instagram post that the actor shared following the baby's birth, "OG Jr." weighed seven pounds and four ounces.



The couple's second son, Miles Christian Gooding, was born on November 21, 2019. He was a bit bigger than his brother at birth as he weighed eight pounds and three ounces.

Omar Gooding is a proud father who is not shy when it comes to sharing heartfelt messages and pictures of his children in social media. In most of them, their similarity is uncanny, and the actor knows it!


Back in December last year, he uploaded a collage of three photos showing himself and his two sons around the same age with the caption:

"Mama?? Man, I make clones. Omar Miles Gooding. Omar Gooding Jr. Miles Gooding. Any OTHER Questions?"



On Instagram, Omar has proven that he is definitely a family man in more than one way. For a while, Cuba Gooding Jr. has been facing some serious allegations from several women over sexual misconduct.

However, the "Smart Guy" star believes in his brother's innocence, and he is not afraid of defending him publicly.

Omar Gooding nowadays is 43 years old. Apart from focusing his time in his family and acting career, he is embarking on the rap music industry. Last year, he released his first solo album titled "The Excuse," and it has an "old school" and "90's feel."
