With the world celebrating Father's Day last weekend, many took time to appreciate their dads on social media. Famous actress China McClain got in on the act as well.
China McClain posted a video of her father, Mike, on Instagram. The video showed her father looking into the distance as he stood by what sounded like a beach. He wore a grey sweater and sported a full white beard, leading to believe that he hadn't gotten a haircut in a while.
Mike eventually looked at the camera and smiled as his daughter told him she loved him. He replied, "I love you," leading China to give off a cute chuckle.
The cute father-daughter moment is quite rare for McClain as most of her Instagram content shows her talking about various issues or promoting a project she's working on.
Still, it's adorable that the actress was able to take time to celebrate her dad. In the caption for the video, she wrote:
"Happy Father's Day to my favorite man on earth @mikejmcclain❤️ Don't know what I would do without you Daddy.? #HappyFathersDay"
McClain has built quite an impressive resume, despite being just 21. She discovered her love for singing and acting at a young age, and she starred in her first movie at the age of seven.
Since then, it's been quite a steady stream of appearances for the actress. From Disney series "A.N.T. Farm" to "Black Lightning," McClain has been a considerable force in Hollywood.
McClain isn't the only acting prodigy in her family.
Apart from her impressive resume, McClain has also worked with some remarkable talents such as Idris Elba, Boris Kodjoe, and Cameron Boyce.
Despite being a recognizable face in Hollywood, McClain isn't the only acting prodigy in her family. Both her sisters — Sierra and Lauryn — have also built impressive careers of their own.
China said that she doesn't criticize her sisters' performances. On the flip side, she sees herself as her biggest critic.
Sierra McClain gained prominence for her role in the Fox series "Empire." As for Lauryn, she starred in "Tyler Perry's House of Payne."
The three sisters have also got an acting credit together. They all starred in the 2007 movie "Daddy's Little Girls."
With all this star power under one roof, China has described the household as "loud." She pointed out that she rarely ever sees her sisters. When they do meet, however, it gets quite loud.
