Tisha Campbell recently shared a photo with his youngest son and mini-me, Ezekiel, bonding in the cold weather: “I learned a lot from you this year.”
Tisha Campbell recently became an officially single woman after her divorce to Duane Martin was finalized last week. The two shared over two decades of marriage and two wonderful kids, Ezekiel and Xen.
Although their relationship did not have a happy ending, the parents are still honoring their duties to their children as they hope to raise them in a safe and loving environment, as they did in the past years.
FUN IN THE SNOW
Days after the divorce was settled, Campbell shared a series of photos with his youngest son, Ezekiel, having fun in what appears to be a snow mountain.
“I just love his resilient spirit!” she wrote in the caption. “No matter what… he finds joy!” The actress took selfies that showed her look-alike walking barefoot in the snow behind her.
Meanwhile, the “My Wife and Kids” star looked radiant, all zipped up in a thick black jacket with a facemask down. As seen in the snaps, the proud mom smiled as soon as her son hugged her from behind.
The former couple welcomed their second son together in September 2009. At the time, Campbell was 40 years old and loving everything about becoming a second-time mom.
Not only did he graduate high school with flying colors, as he was a consistent dean’s lister, but also while working two jobs.
Ezekiel came weighing 9 pounds and 9 ounces, measuring 23 inches long. His older brother and the couple’s first son together, Xen, was eight at the time of the newborn’s arrival.
OFF TO COLLEGE
Unlike Ezekiel, Xen was born with autism and hindered him from learning at the same pace as an average child. However, his parents both focused on his disability early on and worked on helping him get through the challenges.
“Today, I cried happy tears for two hours straight in traffic Today my son, Xen, got into the college he’s talked about since he was eight years old [sic].”
According to Campbell, her son did not ask help nor assistance from anyone for his college application and independently made his way through and succeeded.
Not only did he graduate high school with flying colors, as he was a consistent dean’s lister, but also while working two jobs to earn extra income and gain experience.
The star’s overflowing pride and happiness comes as her son proved that disabilities are but blocks on the road for anyone trying to succeed, and overcoming them is certainly possible.
