Many followers joined him in showing love to the birthday girl as they shared their heartfelt messages. It seems Diedra is not much of a spotlight person.

Marlon is the youngest son of Howell and Elvira Wayans. He and his siblings grew up in the projects. To escape everyday financial challenges, the Wayans kids used comedy.

Diedra is a mom to two grown-up sons, Craig and Gregg Wayans and they have followed in her brother's career path as Hollywood stars.

Craig is a producer who has worked on his uncles' shows like "Marlon" and "My Wife and Kids." Craig also has writing credits for the 2010 BET Awards. Gregg is an actor whose TV credits include films like "My Roommate and I," Urban Myths," and "Time Capsule," among others.

Although the Wayans family has made a definite mark in Hollywood, they keep family relations above all their milestone achievements.

Marlon is one of the prominent members of his family of stars. He co-wrote "The Wayans Bros" alongside his brother, Damon Wayans. The story was centered on the family's autobiography and it was a huge success.
