"The Steve Harvey Show" star Terri J Vaughn had nothing but sweet words for her son, Kal'El, on his 13th birthday. She shares the teenager with Karon Riley, her husband of 13 years.


Terri J Vaughn's son is officially a teenager! The actress took to Instagram, penning a touching tribute to her son Kal'El Joseph who recently celebrated his 13th birthday.

In the next slide, Vaughn included a throwback photo of Kal'El as a toddler. Except for a cute blue crochet beanie, the little one was captured shirtless.

Kal'El let out an adorable toothless smile while staring at the camera. Vaughn followed up the sweet images with a caption where she admitted she could not imagine her life without him. The actress added:

"God blessed the world with a bright, beautiful, powerful, brilliant, loving, Fun light the day you were born."


Vaughn further said she is grateful to have been chosen to be Kal'El's mother. She concluded by expressing her love for the teenager and wishing him excellence in all his endeavors.

The actress welcomed Kal'El in April 2008 with her second husband, former footballer Karon Riley, whom she married just a few months before their son's birth.

The couple also shares a daughter, Lola, whom they welcomed in October 2014. It has become quite common to see the little one making appearances on her mom's social media page.

In addition to her children with Riley, Vaughn shares her oldest son, Daylen, with her ex-husband, Derrick A, whom she was married to in the early 2000s.


When Vaughn is not showing off her kids on social media or celebrating their milestones, the actress makes sure to remind fans that even after all these years, she is still as good-looking as ever.

To celebrate her 50th birthday in October 2019, Vaughn showed off her abs and youthful look in a photoshoot that left fans swooning over her beauty.

Best known for her appearing in the '90s comedy show "The Steve Harvey Show," Vaughn has come a long way from the young girl everyone fell in love with. 

A blissful home, three healthy children, and a relatively successful career, Vaughn simply could not have asked for a better family or, even more, a better life.
