Taking to his Instagram page yesterday, Hanks paid a tribute to the mother of his child, Tiffany Miles, who is black, as a sign of solidarity against racism.
Chet secretly welcomed his baby girl, Michaiah, in April 2016. However, it wasn't until months that Chet finally shared the news.
Alongside a series of photos showing him standing in front of Geroge Floyd's artwork, Chet wrote about how he was thankful for Tiffany, calling her "the mother of my child and a beautiful black woman."
He also appreciated Tiffany's "family of powerful black women" who made it possible for him to have his daughter, who can now call him on Facetime. Expressing his support for the black lives movement, Chet wrote:
"I'll do anything to help create a better world for her. Anything. And there's only one thing that has to change- Everything."
It will be recalled that Chet recently became sober after years of struggling with substance abuse in the public eyes. According to ET Online, the 30-year-old credits the birth of his daughter for making him sober and clean.
He admitted that although he knew he wasn't living right, he couldn't change his way until something drastic like becoming a father happened. Speaking to the publication, he said:
"It was the prospect of having a kid, and I knew that in nine months there's gonna be a baby here. That gave me the motivation to be like, 'OK, I've had my time now, and I need to move on."
E! Online recalls that Chet secretly welcomed his baby girl, Michaiah, in April 2016. However, it wasn't until months that Chet finally shared the news in an already-deleted touching video on Instagram.
The eldest son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson described the little one as the best thing to ever happen to him and explained that he wouldn't share her photo on social media.
Despite trying his best to shield her from the public eye, Daily Mail reports that Michaiah was spotted for the first time in December 2016 while running errands with her mom in California. According to witnesses who saw the mother-daughter duo, baby Michaiah was described as her grandfather's twin.
