Wayne Brady took to Instagram to share a picture of his "core four," which included his daughter Malie while sending a sweet message to appreciate her.


Having a strong support system is vital for almost everybody. The understanding that certain people have one's back through thick and thin is liberating and comforting.

Multitalented entertainer Wayne Brady took to Instagram to share a picture of his "core four" lounging on a yacht in honor of Father's Day.

The image showed Wayne Brady, his daughter Maile, his ex-wife, Mandie Taketa, and her boyfriend Jason Fordham, wearing huge smiles and huddled together on the yacht's nose.

The four looked relaxed, wearing casual outfits, and Maile was snuggled between her father and mother. The post was captioned:

"Father's Day love w my #corefour...Being a father is THE most important job I have. I love it."


He continued the caption by saying that he's a happy man, and his family was everything to him. Brady's fans took to the comments section to express that they were glad to see him have such an excellent relationship with his daughter and his ex-wife.


Some asked what their recipe was for being successful co-parents, and others could not help but comment on the wonderful and "unusual" family.

Brady revealed that he thinks of his second wife more like a sister.

Brady is a proud dad who never shies away from praising and appreciating his daughter at any chance he gets. He often dotes on her on social media and gushes over how amazing she had become.

In a post on Instagram, Brady expressed that he was glad to be a "proud papa" to Maile. He admitted that being a father was something he was born to do.


Wayne Brady, who won the second edition of "The Masked Singer," revealed that he conferred with his daughter before going for the competition. Although he had to lie to his mother, he could not keep it away from his daughter because of the bond they shared.

Twice married, Brady says that his marriages have taught him incredible lessons over the years. His first marriage to Diana Lasso, from 1993 to 1995, taught him never to rush into things.

Although he is separated from Lasso, he considers her a great person whom he should not have married at such a young age.


His second marriage to Mandie Taketa is one he cherishes despite their split. Brady revealed that he thinks of his second wife more like a sister than someone with whom he had a baby.

Despite their split, the two have maintained an incredible friendship and are great co-parents to their daughter.

The couple welcomed Maile in 2003, and over the years, Brady said that raising a child requires servitude and catering, something he was willing to give to his daughter.
