Actor and comedian Mike Epps are ecstatic in new pictures shared on his Instagram commemorating his daughter Moriah Epps on her sweet 16th birthday two days ago, on February 22.
Mike Epps recently shared a few snapshots with his daughter Moriah through the ages to celebrate her 16th birthday. The dad is all smiles as he poses with his grown-up girl.
The funnyman privileged his fans with three photos of the father-daughter duo. The first image shows Mike in a red silk suit with his arm around Moriah, and they are both beaming.

The second photo showed Moriah when she was much younger strapped in a baby chair and wearing a lime green and pink tracksuit. The look on her face is priceless and filled with sass.
Epps has his arms around Moriah in the last picture which was obviously taken more recently as it is evident that Moriah is much older. Epps sweetly penned a birthday wish for his daughter in the caption, saying:
"Happy birthday to my beautiful and smart funny Baby Moriah sweet 16 baby you make me proud I love you."
Epps has five daughters and loves to feature them on his social media. His eldest daughters are Bria and Makayla. He was married to Mechelle McCain between 2006 and 2017.
They had two daughters together, Moriah (16) and Madison (14). In 2019, Epps began his second marriage to Kyra Robinson, and they had a baby girl named Indiana Rose last year.
Well-known in the entertainment industry, Epps is apparently not a big fan of his fellow comedian, Kevin Hart.
A year ago, the happy couple shared the news that they had welcomed their first child together on their respective social media accounts. Her name is likely a tribute to the actor's hometown.
Although Epps loves being a girl dad, he confessed in an interview that he would have also appreciated a son in part because he grew up with several brothers. He explained:
"I wish I had a son. My mother had eight sons and one girl."
Now well-known in the entertainment industry, Epps is apparently not a big fan of his fellow comedian, Kevin Hart. Apparently, he had invited Hart for dinner before he was famous, but Hart never reciprocated the courtesy.
Additionally, Epps has little respect for comedians who attack each other to further their own careers. He expressed that he found Hart's discussion of Katt Williams’ drug habit distasteful and unkind.
Epps did not have an easy life before his debut as a stand-up comedian with "Def Comedy Jam." In his 2018 memoir, he revealed that his single mom struggled to provide for him, and they had a shortage of food.
After being jailed for selling drugs, he turned to comedy. Epps is now well-recognized for his roles in the movies "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" (2004), "Extinction" (2007), and "The Hangover" (2009).
