Whoopi Goldberg's grandson, Mason Dean, looked fashionable in a bright orange coat as he hoped for a great year ahead.

Whoopi Goldberg is a successful Hollywood star and a proud grandmother-of-three. However, it wasn't until he was five that the actress' grandson, Mason Dean, found out his granny was the famous Whoopi Goldberg.

In an episode of "The View," Goldberg recalled how her then little grandson saw a billboard of her and realized his grandmother was a big-time celebrity. Now, Mason is much older and following in the entertainment industry.

POSING IN ORANGE

Mason, who debuted his musical talents in 2017 at the art show "Parental Advisory Explicit Images: An Evening of Hip-Hop," recently shared photos in a simple yet fashionable outfit.

The "Sister Act" star's grandson looked cool in a black turtleneck top, black pants, and a thick bright orange coat while posing with a chain necklace and glasses.

"May this year be filled with many blessings and opportunities," he captioned the post that saw him in front of a poster and jumping from a piano seat.

BECOMING A MUSICIAN

Although Mason has connections in the industry, Goldberg proudly claimed that the young artist made his way independently. The comedian told her audience that they should only come to watch Mason if they like his music.

Disney's official Twitter account announced the upcoming film, which has Tyler Perry and Goldberg as producers.

The "Ghost" actress also noted that, although she supports her grandson's career, she will not appear in any of his songs to sing a verse and what not.

EYE FOR STYLE

Apart from his entertainment talent, Mason and his siblings inherited Goldberg's eye for fashion. In 2016, the star supported the Gypsy fall 2016 runway show simply because she liked their clothing.

The brand sent Goldberg a couple of their pieces, which are versatile and can be worn across age groups. However, the actress' grandkids got them as they also fell in love with the fashionwear.

Goldberg's three grandchildren, Mason, Amarah, and Jerzey, are from her only daughter, Alex Martin, whom she shares with her first husband, Alvin Martin.
