Devin Hervey, is all grown up, and there is no denying that he is a replica of his father, Ramon Hervey II. In a recent Instagram post, Devin shared a picture of himself wearing a white t-shirt with an animated basketball design at the front. The shirt read, "Shoot Hoops, Not People."

While Devin indeed looked handsome, his most distinctive feature was his beards, which had him looking exactly like his father.
"That shirt says it all, bro!"
Devin's post comes months after his 27th birthday. Williams dedicated a sweet tribute to her son on the day by sharing a picture collage of herself with him. The proud mother added a caption where she wished Devin a happy birthday, adding that she was proud of him.

In addition to Devin, Williams is mother to Melanie and Jilian, who she shares with Ramon Hervey. She also shares a girl, Sasha Gabriella, with her second husband, Rick Fox.
Although Williams managed to be actively present in all her children's lives, in 2010, the mother of four reportedly admitted that she would have done things differently if she had a second chance.
According to her, she had matured as a mother over the years and eventually learned some important lessons about parenthood. In a 2012 interview with "CNN," Williams and her mother, Helen, opened up about their relationship and how it influenced Williams' relationship with her three daughters.

While reflecting on her experience as Miss America, Williams admitted that it was a lot more difficult for her as a black woman. According to Williams, she had to do a lot more to be considered smart and worthy of her crown.
Amid the fight against racism, Williams stated that she was shocked by the killing of George Floyd (a black man who was killed at the hands of the police.) As a way to deal with her rage, the beauty queen has taken some actions in her own right.
In collaboration with some of her colleagues in Broadway, a small group called "Black Theater United" was created to join in the fight against racism.
For Williams, she will continue using her fame and platform to make a change, and while she might not be able to do it all, her efforts will not go unnoticed.
