Marlon Wayans and his son Shawn had fans gushing about their good looks after the actor shared a gorgeous Instagram picture of them posing together.


Legendary actor Marlon Wayans recently shared a new photo of himself posing with his 18-year-old son Shawn Howell, and the two sure make for an adorable father-son duo.

In the picture, Marlon was seen donning a black sweatshirt, which he accessorized with a pair of glasses and a gorgeous necklace. Shawn simply opted for a black sleeveless top while also rocking a necklace.

The picture showed Marlon sporting a pout as he leaned in towards Shawn, who flashed a charming smile as they posed for the beautiful father-son picture.

Marlon accompanied the image with a caption referencing the striking resemblance between him and Shawn. The actor proudly wrote:

"Me and the sequel."


As expected, Marlon's adorable post garnered several reactions from fans and followers who took to the comments section to share their thoughts.

While some fans could not stop gushing over how handsome the two men looked, others could not help but notice the uncanny resemblance between father and son.

Marlon shares Shawn with his ex-wife, Angelica Zackary, whom he was married to for eight years between 2005 and 2013.


Though Marlon's post recorded several likes and comments, this was not the first time the legendary actor will be showing off his love for Shawn.

In May, he shared a picture of himself posing alongside Shawn, who proudly held a certificate showing he had just graduated from The Buckley School, California. The actor accompanied the image with a caption where he noted that he was proud of his son while adding:

"Love you to the moon and back around the stars through the galaxy forever times infinity plus 1 day."

While maintaining a cordial relationship with an ex seems difficult for some people, Marlon and Zackary seem to have cracked the code as the two have remained close even after their divorce.


In 2017, Marlon opened up about his co-parenting relationship with Zackary and noted that he would always have love and respect for her.

The following year, he proved this with a heartwarming birthday post where he described Zackary as his best friend while promising to always be there for her.

With Marlon's love for Zackary, it comes as no surprise that he dotes on his children as much as he does. Not only is he a great actor, but Marlon clearly understands the importance of family and would not stop showing them just how much they mean to him.
