Whoopi Goldberg has a gorgeous granddaughter who stole hearts recently in a social media post that featured her dressed in a purple maxi dress. 

Whoopi Goldberg's granddaughter, Jerzey Dean, is a looker. She recently stole hearts after she shared several photos of herself via her Instagram page. 

In the photos, she looked gorgeous in a purple maxi dress with a plunging neckline — she paired this with stylish black Nike sneakers, large dark shades, and a classy brown-colored handbag.

The photos caught the 23-year-old in different poses as she showed off her beautiful outfit. One featured her seated on the well-kept lawns of Wilson Creek Winery with her shades on and her legs crossed

Another saw her caught within a picture frame with the words, "Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyard" written on it. Within the frame, Jerzey posed up a storm looking every bit a queen.

She captioned one of the posts with a quote from Nate Dogg. It read, "they can come closer than close .. yah[Sic]. Original they never will beeeee [Sic]."  In the comments section, fans of the 23-year-old could not get enough of her — they all agreed that the color purple complimented her beauty. 

Jerzey is only one of Whoopi Goldberg's three grandchildren by way of her daughter, actress/producer Alexandrea "Alex" Martin — she is Goldberg's only child with first husband Alvin Martin. 

She grew up without a father, and her single mother, Emma, worked several jobs.

Goldberg shares a close relationship with Jerzey. After the death of Joan Rivers — a friend of hers — she was sighted with Jerzey, who remained by her side while she honored her commitment to the New York Fashion Week Show, later that day. 

Speaking about the kind of grandmother she is, Goldberg revealed that no one in her family looks to her for activities of the culinary nature. She said, "I'm just a grandmother. They look to me for adventure. So I bring the bad stuff in."

Goldberg is one of the leading names in the movie industry. She was born Caryn Elaine Johnson on November 13, 1955, in New York City.

She grew up without a father, and her single mother, Emma, worked several jobs, including teaching and nursing, to put food on the table for her and her older brother, Clyde. 

Goldberg is most recognized for her skillful representation in both comedic and dramatic roles, as well as her trailblazing work in the Hollywood film industry as an African-American woman. 

Some of her early film credits include; "Jumpin' Jack Flash" directed by Penny Marshall, "Fatal Beauty," "Clara's Heart," "Homer & Eddie," and the civil rights period drama, "The Long Walk Home."
