Hollywood's Tichina Arnold warmed her media timeline with the sweetest video clip that served as a birthday tribute for her teenage daughter Alijah Kai who recently turned 17.

"Martin" alum Tichina Arnold was super psyched and filled with joy on Instagram as she shared a video montage chronicling sweet moments with her growing daughter, Alijah Kai.

Arnold's heart-melting post came in line with Alijah's seventeenth birthday celebration. The happy mom drew the attention of well-meaning fans who were pleased with the young girl's graciousness.

The clip chronicled some of their mom-daughter moments, starting from Alijah's childhood. The first montage presented Alijah's younger version in a bathtub displaying her vocal talent.

Alijah's voice was quite captivating as she advanced in age, belting out more sounds from Beyoncé and Rihanna. One of the clips showed her already grown and singing with her star mom. Arnold heartily captioned:

"Happy born day to my one and only. Mommy loves you. Happy 17th, @alijahkai. Continue to walk in the path that God has blessed you with…"


More from the montage showed that Alijah was an expert at being a vocalist and might be well on her way to carving a niche in the music industry. The short clips let fans know that Arnold and Alijah had a special relationship.

This is not the first time the movie star would be flaunting her girl's singing prowess. Once while she updated her media, the pair indulged in a lovely moment, doing justice to Beyoncé's "Party."

Arnold especially cherished how Hines showed Alijah love, but the marriage ended after he was involved in a sex tape scandal.


The clip showed that Alijah got her mom's singing streak and knew how to sing up a storm. This brings to mind how Arnold, 51, used to wow her slew of fans with melodies on "Martin."

Arnold started her Hollywood career at the age of 12, taking roles in movies such as "Little Shop of Horrors" and "How I Got Into College." Way into her adult years, she played Pam in "Martin," where she gained more recognition.


With almost four decades of Hollywood in her resume, Arnold has made quite some exploits in showbiz. Outside TV, the star is a mom-of-one who tried her hands at marriage two times.

She was first married to pro boxer Lamon Brewster in 1991, and they were together for four years. She would later welcome her daughter, Alijah, with her then-boyfriend, Carvin Haggins.

The pair broke up after three years. In 2012, the 51-year-old found love again with basketball coach Rico Hines. Arnold especially cherished how Hines showed Alijah love, but the marriage ended after he was involved in a sex tape scandal.
