"227" star Jackée Harry paid a sweet birthday tribute to her beloved adopted son, Frank Brown, on social media. Also in the cute snaps she shared was her adorable grandson, Kydyn Elias Brown.


Mothers do know how to make their son’s birthday extra special. Jackée Harry, 64, made sure her son, Frank Brown, who just turned 27, was filled with love on his special day.

On October 2, Harry shared with her 408,000 followers on Instagram two sweet pictures of herself with Frank and his adorable three-year-old son, Kydyn.

In the first picture which appeared to be a selfie, Harry is seen dressed in a red printed long-sleeved shirt while Frank is looking casual in a plain white shirt. He also showed his cool neck tattoo and a nose piercing.

Frank leaned close to the “Sister, Sister” star for a picture. The mother-son duo looked like they were inside a restaurant where Harry enjoyed her vodka martini drink. Harry wrote:

"Happy birthday to my fantastic son, Frank! I’m so proud of the young man and great father you’ve become ???."


In another snap, Harry beams with a smile while Brown makes a funny face beside Kydyn. The little boy whom Harry loves to bits, shares remarkable similarities with his father. 

Many fans took to the comment section to send their warm birthday messages and greetings to Frank. Some also commented that Harry’s son is handsome. 

Harry shared that when she first saw Frank, it was love at first sight.


Frank and his girlfriend, Aubrey welcomed Kydyn in 2017. The couple also has a daughter named Lyv Ivonne who was born in September 2019.

The professional boxer’s father is celebrity hairstylist Elgin Charles whom Harry married in 1996. The couple, however, divorced in 2003.

Although his parents have gone separate paths, Frank still maintains a close relationship with his parents. Though divorced, Harry and Elgin have remained friends.


Harry’s love for Frank is long-lasting. In a 2014 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry expressed that she had always wanted to have a child, despite being a driven career woman.

Winfrey thought that Harry’s longing for a child would go away, but the comedy actress proved her wrong. While working, Harry was able to squeeze in time for child adoption.

In 2007, the first-ever African-American Emmy-award winner and Elgin adopted Frank at eight months old. Harry shared that when she first saw Frank, it was love at first sight.

While looking after her grandson and her adopted son, Harry has no qualms about working past her 60s. She has no plans of retiring from acting anytime soon.

Harry made sure that while working, she spends quality time with her son. As for Frank, he seems to be a loving son who is proud of the actress’s achievements.
