Marlon Wayans recently took to Instagram with a video of himself and his son Shawn and fans could not stop gushing over how alike the duo looked.


"Fifty Shades of Black" Marlon Wayans is a proud father of two, and if there is anything the actor enjoys doing, it is giving his social media fans a glimpse of his bond with his children. 

In a recent Instagram post, Wayans shared a video showing the striking resemblance between him and his son, Shawn, who sported a cute afro. The clip featured several throwback photos of the actor from years ago.

Shawn donned a black sweater and a pair of stud earrings. Though he was seen alone initially, the teenager was later joined by his famous dad who flashed an adorable grin. Captioning the picture, Marlon wrote:

"My son @shawnwayansss bout[sic] to have me on @tiktok."


Expectedly, the post racked up several reactions from fans and followers who took to the comments section gushing over Wayan's heartwarming video.

One user described Marlon as handsome, while another noted that the actor and Shawn looked like twins. Many others left heart and fire emojis in admiration of the duo.

Amai is not old enough to understand her sexuality.


Marlon shares his two kids with his ex-wife, Angelica Zachary, to whom he was married for eight years between 2005 and 2018. Though the pair's marriage did not work out, they managed to maintain a cordial co-parenting relationship.

Seeing the bond he shares with their mother, it comes as no surprise that Marlon has a close relationship with his kids and often takes to social media to show them off.

In 2019, the actor shared a video showing off Shawn's basketball skills that left fans gushing and swooning over the teenager's sportsmanship in the comments section.


Later that year, Marlon proved that he would always be there to defend his son when he shared a video that showed him calling out a referee during one of Shawn's basketball games despite his fame and fortune.

Apart from being there for his son, Marlon has an incredible bond with his daughter Amai, who has been criticized after identifying as a lesbian.


Fans of the actor noted that Amai is not old enough to understand her sexuality and urged Marlon to scold the teenager and stop her from identifying as gay.

Marlon was, however, not fazed by the critics as he took to social media in June 2019, calling the teenager an amazing child and a kind human that any parent would be lucky to have. Shawn and Amai are indeed lucky to have him.
