Actor Samuel L. Jackson celebrated his only daughter Zoe Jackson's 39th birthday on Sunday by posting rare family pictures of her along with a sweet tribute.
Samuel L. Jackson is famous for his many notable roles in Hollywood movies, including his portrayal of Nick Fury in "Avengers" and other Marvel movies.
While he is proud of his beautiful acting career, he is also a proud father of an only child and daughter, Zoe Jackson, who turned 39 on Sunday.

Jackson did not hold back from celebrating Zoe on her birthday and took to his Instagram page to share rare family pictures of some of their precious moments.
The first picture in the post showed Zoe holding a green alien doll, while the second snapshot featured the father-daughter duo smiling with their mouths wide open as they posed.
The third photo saw Jackson carrying Zoe as a baby suckling her fingers. In the snapshot, the little tot was clad in a white printed long-sleeved top.
The last picture in the proud dad's post showed Zoe in a boat during a cruise. She wore a white printed sleeveless top and matching hat, which she paired with black sweat pants.
Jackson has shared some wonderful parenting quotes with the world.
In the post's caption, the "Coach Carter" actor wished Zoe a happy birthday. He wrote that her presence and persistence, lemon bars, and streaming suggestions were lockdown gifts that made 2020 bearable.
Jackson added that Zoe always assured him that things were going to be alright. In the concluding part of his caption, he wrote:
"I hope you feel this Enormous Virtual Hug fulla LOVE for ya???‼️#proudtobeyourpop# you'redaspecialsauceoflife."
Jackson shares Zoe with his wife, LaTanya Richardson, with whom he has been married since 1980. The couple welcomed their daughter two years after tying the knot.
Richardson and Jackson have busy lives as they are both Hollywood stars. The former is best known for her role as Paulina Pritchett in the 2003 musical, "The Fighting Temptations."
She is also a Tony Award winner, which she earned for her performance in the Broadway play "A Raisin in the Sun." In 2017, she featured as Diana Pierce in "Grey's Anatomy."
Despite their busy lives, the couple raised a loving daughter in Zoe, who they are most proud of. They can even be termed as experienced parents with Jackson sharing some wonderful parenting quotes with the world. One that comes to mind is about being a present father to his daughter.
Jackson said it is always important for him to be present in his daughter's life because he had an absentee dad. He also said Zoe deserved two parents, which is part of the rationale of him and Richardson staying married for so long.
