Martin Lawrence's fiancée,  Roberta Moradfar, celebrated the actor's daughter's 20th birthday with a cute Instagram picture of the duo looking like old pals.

Roberta Moradfar, who is engaged to "Bad Boys for Life" actor, Martin Lawrence, shared a gorgeous picture in celebration of his second daughter, Iyanna's 20th birthday.

Iyanna was born on November 9, 2000, and welcomed by the actor and his ex-wife, Shamicka Gibbs, with whom he shares another girl, Amara Trinity.

The actor's fiancée, Moradfar, shared a heartwarming birthday post of the duo where she expressed  how happy she was to see Iyanna blossom into the most vibrant, sincere, and gifted "little woman."

In the post featuring a photo of the two of them, Iyanna rocked a black dress and wore a broad smile that revealed her beautiful red lipstick and dazzling teeth. Moradfar looked radiant in a simple sweatshirt and big earrings as her long braids flowed freely to her arms. The duo hugged happily like old pals. Moradfar captioned the post;

"Celebrating you, my beauty @Iyanna_faith, and just so happy to see you blossom into the most vibrant, warm, sincere, and gifted little woman lol! Your heart is pure... I love you, Yanni Poi!!!"


The post received over a thousand likes and a few comments. Fans noted that Moradfar and Iyanna looked happy together and left words of good wishes. 

The "Big Momma's House" star is a proud father of three. When he is not filming or gracing popular award stages, Lawrence loves to spend time with his family. He revealed that even though he is a famous actor, he raised his girls to be decent.

Jasmine is a graduate of Duke University and, according to reports, is doing well for herself.


Lawrence said that he reminds his children how lucky they are, stating that he did not enjoy the privilege they have. The actor revealed that he gives his kids tips for their wallets but takes it from them if they do not behave correctly.

The famous comedian had his first child — daughter Jasmine — with Patricia Southall in 1995. He was divorced from her in 1997 before going on to have an intimate relationship with Shamicka Gibbs. The duo wed in 2010 and divorced in 2012 after Lawrence filed for it, citing irreconcilable differences.


Even though they are divorced, Lawrence and Gibbs do their best to co-parent their two daughters. When it comes to their girls, the ex-couple puts aside their differences and shows up as one happy family. 

The duo reportedly teamed up to send their daughter Iyanna off to her first semester of college. The 55-year-old comedian is proud to see his kids take steps to achieve their goals.


While Iyanna is studying creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College, Lawrence's eldest daughter Jasmine is a graduate of Duke University and, according to reports, is doing well for herself. Jasmine and Will Smith's oldest child, Trey, are said to be good friends.

All seems to be going well for the "Bad Boys" actor, who is reportedly warming up to visit the aisle for the third time with his fiancée.

Lawrence made the announcement last year after it was revealed that he proposed with a fancy 5-carat emerald cut engagement ring with their initials spelled out in diamonds. Fans will hope that Moradfar, who works as an aesthetics nurse practitioner, will be the actor's last visit to the aisle.
