Danny Glover's grandson is getting big. The actor's daughter, Mandisa, shared a photo of him on Instagram, doting on the teenager's skin in the rare post.
On Monday, Danny Glover's daughter, Mandisa Glover took to Instagram to share a photo of her son looking comfortable in a tank top and shorts.
Glover's daughter has chosen to follow her own path in life. She typically remains out of the spotlight. Her Instagram is filled with organic meals, candid photos, and family-focused shots. The latest one is found below.
DANNY'S GRANDSON IS ALL GROWN UP
In the shot Mandisa shared, her son stood up wearing a dark brown sleeveless tank top over a pair of black shorts. He was in an orange-painted room with a door ajar behind him.
The boy had a thumbs-up sign as he gave the camera a close-mouthed smile. In the caption, his mom doted on him, writing: "OMG I really made a beautiful smart funny wonderful young man [...]."
She went on to talk about her son's skin, joking that she was quite jealous of it. In the comment section, one person expressed awe at how big the boy was now. Of course, his grandfather stands at 6' 3," so the young boy might still have a lot of growth ahead of him.
DANNY'S EARLY PERSONAL LIFE
Danny shares his only child, Mandisa, with ex-wife Asake Bomani. The pair were married from 1975 until 2000. Danny is currently married to Eliane Cavalleiro since the two tied the knot in 2009.
Danny met his first wife at university, where Bomani studied English. He once said he was "infatuated" with Bomani, who would become a jazz singer later on in life.
DANNY'S BIGGEST ACTION FILM MAY CONTINUE
Danny is perhaps most well-known for his role in 1985's "The Color Purple." He also starred in "Witness" the same year. He would later receive Oscar nominations for both movies. In 1987, he starred alongside Mel Gibson in "Lethal Weapon."
The film was successful and is now a widely known classic action franchise. This January, news emerged that the two actors would be reuniting for yet another sequel of the movie.
Producer Dan Lin said it would be the final version of the film and that the original cast was returning. The announcement comes after years of fans theorizing about a fifth sequel.

DANNY'S RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS DAUGHTER
Danny's closeness to his only daughter is apparent in Mandisa's birthday posts every year. However, back in the '80s, he portrayed quite a different persona in the villainous character, Mister, in "The Color Purple."
At the time, a young Mandisa appeared on the cover of a magazine called Jet with her dad. The father-daughter portrait was heartwarming, and, ironically Mandisa's favorite film is none other than "The Color Purple."
Mandisa celebrated her father's birthday this year with a heartwarming post honoring him on social media. She included several snapshots of her and her dad over the years. In her caption, she called her dad "a king."
Off-screen, Danny has accomplished a lot in the area of activism for the underprivileged. Furthermore, he supports Black filmmakers by acting in their movies. The formal civil rights speech-giver has a formidable legacy to boast of.
