"The Cosby Show" star Phylicia Rashad recently shared a sweet video of herself wishing her only daughter, Condola, a happy birthday. Condola's cat also made a surprise cameo in the video.

Actress Phylicia Rashad is known for being the doting mom in the eighties' sitcom, "The Cosby Show," but the actress is just as loving when it comes to real-life motherhood.

The adored actress recently shared a sweet video message dedicated to her only daughter, actress Condola Rashad, where she serenaded the 34-year-old.

In the video that was self-captured, Rashad was in a brick-walled room with large windows behind her. There was a large green plant behind the cream-textured couch that she was sitting on.

The "Creed" actress was dressed in a silky blue animal-print outfit and shiny droopy earrings. Her hair was styled in a low ponytail, revealing her beautiful silver strands of hair.


Rashad kicked off her video with a sweet rendition of the song, "happy birthday," which she sang beautifully for her daughter, whom she calls by her middle name, Phylea. The post was captioned:

"Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter, @DolaBunny! ❤️ I love you!"

The video also featured a cameo from Condola's black cat, "Bagheera,"  who was softly walking on the couch behind the actress. The dedication ended with a lovely message wishing Condola a great day.


Fans rushed to the comment section to applaud the loving mom, wishing Rashad's daughter a happy birthday, and they also commented on the TV mom's sweet demeanor in her birthday dedication.

One fan commented, "That face♥️ , that voice ♥️, that diction♥️ Mrs Rashad is everything! happy birthday Condola! ?" Another fan commented, "It’s not even my birthday, and this brought me joy, especially with the cat!" 


Rashad and her daughter, Condola, have a very close relationship, with the younger Rashad following in her mother's footsteps and pursuing a career as an actress with television credits in both television and theatre. Rashad told Associated Press:

"She was with me in every rehearsal hall and backstage in the theatres..and [Condola] says she learned from watching."

During the interview, Rashad said she was stunned by her daughter's talent, adding that Condola had an incredible work ethic and didn't require much guidance from the "A Fall From Grace" actress.

Rashad, who earned the Mother of the Black Community Award at the NAACP Image Awards in 2010, reprised her role as a tv mom in the recent sci-fi movie, "Black Box," which premiered in October.

In an interview with Bustle, the actress credited her own mother, Vivian Ayers Allen, a poet who taught her that her inner self would determine who she was on the outside.
