Whoopi Goldberg's granddaughter Jerzy Dean celebrates the important women in her life by sharing snaps that also revealed her distinct resemblance to them. 


Award-winning actress and talk show co-host Whoopi Goldberg may not have achieved remarkable success in having a romantic relationship, but when it comes to parenthood, she holds a reputable title as the mother to a successful actress and producer, Alex Martin.

Martin is her only child from a past relationship. She married Bernard Dean and made her mother a grandmother to three adorable kids—Amarah, Jerzey, and Mason, who have a bond with the veteran on-screen star.

This past Mother's Day, one of Goldberg's grandchildren impressively celebrated her mother and grandmother. She shared snaps showing her in the company of the talk show co-host and quipped:

"And a happy happy mothers day to my granny!!"


In the shared post, it was hard to dismiss the resemblance between these two. To top it all, both granddaughter and grandmother sported outfits that hinted they share a similarity in fashion.

On the same day, Martin was up for admiration on her daughter's Instagram page. Coincidentally, it was her birthday. Jerzey uploaded throwback photos of the celebrant and added a clip featuring mother and daughter goofing around with filters.

While the talk show co-host might have passed her acting genes to her daughter, it was a different ball game when it came to the grandchildren.



The birthday girl got a charming birthday shout-out in two separate posts. The second was a monochrome image showing Goldberg's daughter during her years as a young child. An accompanying caption read:

"Happy Mothers Day..."


Fans of the Goldberg clan cannot easily forget how talented Martin is. At a young age, she already identified with being on the big screens by appearing in two of her mother's films—"The Color Purple," and "Sister Act 2."

She continued to build her resume and has already established an impressive career in the entertainment industry. Like her mother, she began having kids at a young age.

A few years ago, her eldest child made her a grandma. This made Goldberg thrilled. However, she joked about being made a great-grandmother before clocking 60.


While Goldberg might have passed her acting genes to her daughter, it was a different ball game when it came to the grandchildren. They each have unique talents but are not in the acting business. Amarah is an artist, Mason, an aspiring rapper, and Jerzey, a model.
