Marlon Wayans Wishes His Big Sister Diedra a Happy Birthday — See His Sweet Tribute

Comedy star Marlon Wayans commemorated his older sister, Diedra Wayans' big day with a thoughtful social media post where he fawned over her.  

Marlon Wayans is celebrating his older sister, Diedra Wayans in one of the sweetest ways as he gave her a birthday shoutout on his Instagram page. Marlon posted a throwback snapshot of Diedra rocking a stylish vintage look complete with her tight afro curls.

The throwback photo showed the slim figure of the celebrant's younger self as she posed for the camera. The "Little Man" actor gushed over her in his caption:

"Happy Birthday to my big sister, @wayansgirl. I'm proud of you as a mother, a sister, a strong black female who turned her life completely around..."

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. 

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 and this propelled their greatness in Hollywood. 

This year, the "Naked," actor did a sober reflection on his birthday as he fondly remembered his late mom. Marlon and the matriarch share the same birthday and he made sure to share a lovely tribute about her. 

On Instagram, the award-winning actor shared a mother-son snapshot while going on to declare his love and how much he missed her.
