Rockmond Dunbar recently warmed the Hearst’s of his followers when he posted a picture of his son, Sultan, wearing a huge hat.
Besides gaining popularity for his appearances in “Earth 2,” “Soul Food,” and “Prison Break,” Rockmond Dunbar is also known as a dedicated family man.
The actor showed off his fatherly side when he took to Instagram to share a picture of his son, Sultan Mosiah Dunbar, rocking what appeared to be a straw hat.
During a 2012 interview with Daily Actor, [Rockmond] recalled that even though he “started hanging around guys who wanted to be litigators,” he eventually made his way to his true love of acting.
Claiming that the little tot was “Growing into his crown,” Rockmond added the hashtags, “#myson #babyboy #king #blackhomeschooling #blackandwhite #rise” to the caption. The post, which has garnered nearly 7,000 likes, quickly got the 47-year-old’s fans talking in the comment section.
While one person dropped several heart emojis, another prayed for God’s blessings on Sultan. Several other fans added that the tot was “adorable,” “cute,” and “handsome.”
The show of love comes nearly seven years after Daily Mail reported that Rockmond welcomed a daughter with his wife, Maya Gilbert. The site noted that the baby girl, named Berkeley Seon, was 20 1/2 inches long and weighed 8lbs, 3oz at birth.
People pointed out at the time that Rockmond announced baby Berkeley’s birth when he tweeted a picture of the newborn’s hand. The news of the baby’s arrival was met with congratulatory messages and shouts of joy from fans, followers, and colleagues.
By the time Rockmond returned to the set of the CBS crime-drama series, “The Mentalist,” his trailer was filled with balloons and other festive items. As for his career, Rockmond previously made it clear that he always had the dream of becoming an actor.
During a 2012 interview with Daily Actor, the “Grey's Anatomy” actor recalled that even though he “started hanging around guys who wanted to be litigators,” he eventually made his way to his true love of acting. The experience he had with his journey also prompted Rockmond to tell upcoming stars:
“If you’re creative, if you love doing it, then act like it. Do it because you love it. Don’t do it for the money. Don’t do it for the fame.”
Rockmond finished his statement by asking interested actors to focus on “creating and giving back and being the best” at their craft.
