Former child star Camile Winbush had the warmest well-wishes up on social media. She took out time to celebrate fellow former child star Dee Dee Davis on her birthday. 


"The Bernie Mac Show" actress Camille Winbush's media update had her showing love and sending a birthday shoutout to her co-star, Dee Dee Davis, on her Instagram story.

Winbush shared a throwback photo of herself, posing with the celebrant and Jeremy Suarez, another star on "The Bernie Mac Show," as they shared big smiles for the camera.

Davis looked lovely in a brown off-shoulder embroidered blouse and a pair of ripped jeans. Winbush focused on her by adding a big crown emoji, indicating she was the star of the moment.

Sharing her birthday wishes and tagging Davis's official Instagram handle, Winbush also reminded her that she was loved. Any fan viewing the Instagram update would have gotten the nostalgic feeling of when the trio were TV babies. 


In 2001, Davis played Bryana "Baby Girl" Thomkins, the youngest of three siblings of which Winbush and Suarez were her older siblings. The trio starred alongside the late Bernie Mac as his nieces and nephew.

"The Bernie Mac Show" revolved around Davis and her TV siblings navigating daily life with their uncle who had a more conservative style of raising them.

These days, she is a mom-of-one and has shown that her utmost priority is raising her little son.

Mac faced several family and domestic challenges associated with raising teenagers, and most of the issues were relatable to real-life occurrences. 

The Fox-produced show, created by Larry Wilmore, aired for five seasons from 2001 to 2006. It earned several awards, such as the Peabody Award, an Emmy, and the Humanitas Prize.

The show came to an end two years before its protagonist and American comedian, Mac, passed on. Life after "The Bernie Mac Show" had most of its cast moving on to other film projects.

Winbush played Vanessa, the oldest of the three siblings and a rebellious teenager. After the TV show ended, she starred in "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." She has also appeared in "ER" and "Grey's Anatomy," among others. 

Kellita Smith played Mac's TV wife, and she went on to do more comedy shows, appearing in movies like "Sharknado" and "The Preacher's Son." Suarez also moved on with his career, making game voiceovers his specialty. 


Davis stopped acting to concentrate on schooling, following Mac's passing. These days, she is a mom-of-one and has shown that her utmost priority is raising her little son. 

In 2018, TV lovers got to relive the past sweet feelings from the beloved "The Bernie Mac Show" when the cast gathered for a reunion. Photos on social media showed how grown everyone was, as they caught up on old times.
