Rock has always been vocal about his affection for his daughters on social media. His posts clearly reflect his fondness for the two girls.
Previously, Rock also paid a tribute to his elder daughter on the occasion of her 17th birthday. The comic legend took to social media to share a picture of Lola followed by a sweet caption.
Wishing his elder daughter a happy birthday on Instagram, Rock further expressed his affection with an adorable message. He wrote:
"The love of my life Lola. Love you so much beautiful never a dull moment [sic]."
Similarly, he also wished the best to his younger daughter on her 15th birthday with a loving post. Taking to social media, Rock posted a picture of Zahra and shared how she made him "happy."
STRONG FAMILY BOND
In yet another post, Rock shared a throwback photograph of his father holding his two kids in his arms when they were little. He explained in the caption to his post that he saw glimpses of his own father in his daughters.
Recently, the proud father was also spotted taking his daughters out for dinner in New York City. Prior to the dinner, the doting father was also seen visiting a tattoo parlor, where he got matching tattoos with Lola.
The family’s day out bonding came amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and all three of them were seen sporting masks along with their stylish outfits.
HIS CONTROVERSIAL DIVORCE
Lola and Zahra both are Rock’s daughters with his ex-wife, Malaak Compton. The couple parted their ways in 2014 after 18 years of marriage. They officially divorced in 2016.
During the divorce, Rock was also amid the controversy that he had taken a South African girl, Ntombi, as his daughter without doing any legal adoption paperwork. The comedian later denied the claims alleging that his estranged wife was to be blamed for Ntombi’s arrival into their home.
