MARLON'S SWEET WORDS FOR SHAWN

The father and son who share an uncanny resemblance looked adorable in the picture. Wayans smiled while his son looked at the camera with a puzzled expression on his face. In the caption, he expressed his immense love for his kid and wrote:

"My boy... love you for life. You're a sweet hardworking good-hearted young man and one of the greatest I've seen play the game... love you for life."

The actor concluded his touching message by saying that he wants to be his son when he grows up. One of his fans could totally relate to him and took to the comments section to say that they tell their kids the same thing. 

Last year, he made headlines after his meltdown during his son's basketball game was caught on camera.

HOW HE NAMED HIS SON

Wayans named his son after his brother Shawn and the reason behind it is pretty special. When they were little kids, the brothers made a pact to name their children after one another. 

Shawn, too, kept the pact and went on to name his son Marlon. He once revealed that he is glad they made the deal when they were 6. What a precious bond they have!

HE IS A PROTECTIVE DAD

Talking about bonds, Wayans is clearly very close to his children and is also protective when it comes to them. Last year, he made headlines after his meltdown during his son's basketball game was caught on camera. 

While watching his teenage son's game, the "Fifty Shades Black" star flipped out at the referee. He even came down to the court level at one point and yelled at him after he allegedly did not give his son calls when he was getting fouled.

NOBODY MESSES WITH THE WAYANS

The videos did not show Wayans arguing, but he did yell at the referees. Things got pretty heated when he pointed at one of them and hurled profanities. Other parents seemed to agree with the actor with one of them asking them to call the game. 

He cooled down and walked away once he had to be restrained. If there was one thing that his fans learned that day, it is that nobody messes with the Wayans brood.
