Gross faced backlash in 2018 after the birth of his son. Fans accused him of colorism after he posted a photo expressing that he was hyped that his baby’s dark complexion was coming in.

He responded to the criticism by posting a typed out message to address the concerns. He explained himself and wrote this about the accusations,

In the Instagram message, he shared that while he agrees colorism exists, just because he is a darker black man who is married to a lighter-skinned black woman does not mean he should be labeled as such.

The pride for his family did not stop there as his Instagram is filled with photos of them, the most recent being this gorgeous festive shot of the family.

Gross sported a white jacket tuxedo and Rebecca wore a gorgeous dress with a full skirt.

“I had facial hair, but they made a decision that they wanted my character, Calvin Payne, to look younger.
