"Sonic The Hedgehog" star Tika Sumpter showered her mom Janice Acquista with love as they posed together in a brand new selfie. One can see where Sumpter gets her gorgeous looks from!


Tika Sumpter got it from her mama! The beautiful actress recently shared a selfie with her mother Janice Acquista and the netizens are in love with the duo.

Sumpter looked pretty with her dark mane let loose. She wore a green top and a summer hat. Acquista looked like her daughter's twin with subtle makeup and a gray and black outfit.

It was an appreciation post from Sumpter to the woman who brought her into the world. Packed with emotions, the caption conveyed a little of the great love she feels for her mother.

Her mother was arrested over a fine of $10 on an overdue library book.


Sumpter feels like her mother is the most confident person she has ever known. Sharing how she is the one she goes to when plagued by doubts about herself, she wrote:


"Whenever I have doubted myself or others have tried to make me feel less than, I can call her and I’m back to 100 in no time."



Sumpter said her mother has gone through so much but throughout the lowest of lows, she never lost her confidence. The actress is thankful to have a strong mother like her.

Janice, a retired corrections officer, became a social media hot topic in 2016 after Sumpter shared a crazy story of how she got arrested in North Carolina.


According to the actress, her mother was arrested over a fine of $10 on an overdue library book. That's right, Janice was taken into custody for a late library fee!

Sumpter called it a legal scam and slammed the Public Library of Johnson County and Smithfield. She later shared how every cop in jail thought it was ridiculous.



Thankfully, Janice got out, but that incident taught them a lot. Experiences like these have made Sumpter wiser — even her on-screen roles teach her a lot about the real world.

For instance, Sumpter once explained how being a part of "Mixed-Ish" helped her become a better mother. In her words, it has allowed her to figure out how she will talk to her daughter about race, religion, and self-love.
