Hollywood star Kel Mitchell warmed many hearts on social media by showing off the special father-daughter moment he tended to his daughter, Wisdom's braids. 


Kel Mitchell let fans know bonding moments with kids could extend beyond playtime. The star dad showed this on his recent Instagram upload where he and his daughter, Wisdom, had some hair grooming time.

The clip showed the pair indoors and in front of a large mirror propped on the bathroom wall. Wisdom sat on the mirror's dresser while her daddy worked on her braided hair.

Mitchell wore a collared shirt and tied his hair with a blue bandana. He set to work, stretching the cords of a blow dryer which he used on the expanse of his daughter's beaded hair.

At some point, Wisdom decided to kill boredom, breaking into a song while her dad played hairstylist. Mitchell detailed what led to blow-drying in his caption which began with:

"A Dad's gotta do what a Dad's gotta do…"


The "Kenan and Kel" star made it known that his wife, Asia Lee, recently braided Wisdom's hair, but the tot got the hair wet during bathtime, so he decided to dry it before she went to bed.

The doting father mentioned that he did not want Wisdom to go to bed with wet hair, hence the styling session. Mitchell admitted that he loved such moments with his daughter. 

The star was initially married to Tyisha Hampton from 1999 to 2005. 


Wisdom, 3, is one of two kids Mitchell shares with Lee. Her younger brother is 6-month-old Honor Johari-Rice. Mitchell's other kids are Allure, 19, and Lyric, 21, from his first marriage. 

In November, the 42-year-old announced on social media that he and his wife welcomed their second child together. He took to Instagram, where he penned his joy and shared the baby's names. 


The stand-up comedian attached a divine image of his newborn son to the post. Lee also took to her Instagram page, gushing over baby number two and sharing some details of his birth. 

Last December, the dad-of-four shared updates on family life, letting fans know that little Wisdom was getting used to being a big sister, beginning to give her baby brother some attention. 

Mitchell and Lee, a rapper, got married in 2012, and a few days after their wedding, he took to social media to praise his wife. The star was initially married to Tyisha Hampton from 1999 to 2005.
