Famous American TV host and comedian, Niecy Nash, takes to social media to show off her 93-year-old lookalike grandmother—Nash says she's her "favorite girl."


Niecy Nash is back with another social media update, this time, she features her 93-year-old grandmother, and the resemblance between them is uncanny. Nash captioned the photo:

"Ain't she cute for 93? #Grandmother #MildredBrookins. Had to go check on my favorite girl!"

In the comments section, fans complimented Nash's grandmother—like Nash, they all agreed that she looked young and cute for a 93-year-old.

A fan wrote, "Not cute for 93, cute PERIOD." Nash is most famous for her comedic flair; however, her personal life has been rife with tragic occurrences.

In a cover interview she once had, she talked about how comedy helped fix her shattered family after her brother's demise. When she was 15, Nash witnessed her mom's boyfriend shoot her in the back.


According to the talented comedian, the man was abusive, and he shot her mom with a "sawed-off double-barrelled shotgun" right in front of her kids—her mom survived the ordeal, but it was never forgotten.

She would stand at the foot of her mom's bed each day, telling her jokes until she eventually cheered up.


Eight years after the incident, Nash's younger brother, Michael, was shot and killed at his high school because of a love triangle—He was 17 at the time.

Nash recalled that her mom nearly gave up when the news reached them. However, Nash was determined to make sure she didn't—she would stand at the foot of her mom's bed each day, telling her jokes until she eventually cheered up. She said that was when she realized comedy was a gift.


Niecy Nash has been married twice. She was first married to Don Nash, with whom she shares three children. They got divorced in June 2007 after 13 years of marriage.

She got engaged to Jay Tucker on September 4, 2010, and they tied the knot on Saturday, May 28, 2011. In December 2019, Niecy Nash filed for divorce from Jay Tucker after eight years of marriage.

The talented TV host once admitted that the process was made more painful because her family members insisted that she had no legit reason to leave the relationship.

For Nash, the process of dissociating from her family's beliefs, and the public's expectations of how marriage should be brought her as much pain as the divorce itself.
