American actor, Marlon Wayans, congratulates his son, Shawn Wayans, as the youngster graduates from high school. Marlon obviously takes great pride in his son's latest achievement.

Marlon is a proud father! The actor's son recently became a high school graduate, and he could not contain his pride.

Wayans took to Instagram to share a photo of them. The father-son duo looked adorable in their black garments. Shawn could be seen displaying his recently collected certificate as they rocked black face masks.

The photo was accompanied by a heartwarming message in which Marlon declared his immense love for his son and expressed his pride.

Still not over the feeling of excitement, Marlon posted another picture. This time, Shawn could be seen rocking a black polo T-shirt while sporting an adorable smile. The post which featured Shawn and his dad was captioned:


"... Congrats baby!!! I'm beyond proud. Do something great... Love you to the moon and back around the stars through the galaxy…"


Wayans has displayed his love for his son in many ways, and this include times when the youngster plays basketball. Late last year, Shawn had a match at school, and Marlon attended to cheer him on.

The proud father ended up doing much more than that as he confronted the referees on their decisions, which he obviously did not agree with.


The comedian felt that his son's team was not being been treated fairly and ended up using some strong words on the officials and even had support from another parent.

Although the match did not go the way he had hoped, Marlon still commended his son for his efforts on the court. He did so with an Instagram post which he captioned:

"The put back. U played sick and didn't complain, you just played. I respect you for not making excuses and just playing."


Shawn is not Marlon's only child. The actor has a daughter named Amai, who is older than his look-alike son. Wayans is also very proud of his daughter, and he openly celebrates her just the way she is.

Amai is gay, and because of this, the actor has received a lot of backlash for supporting her, but he said he would not change anything about her.

Marlon shares his kids with his ex-wife, Angelica Zackary. The former couple has had many ups and downs, including a cheating scandal on Marlon's part.

They eventually got a divorce after their long-time relationship, however, they still manage to have a good relationship with each other.
