Eartha Kitt's daughter Kitt Shapiro flaunts a throwback snap showing her mom in matching two-piece swimwear with her toned legs and fit tummy on display.


Kitt Shapiro had a special bond with her celebrity mom Eartha Kitt. She was the singer and actress's only child with Bill McDonald before the pair divorced in 1964.

Kitt made history with her progress in the entertainment industry as an "exciting entertainer." According to her child, she had two personalities. Onstage and in the media, she was inspired by a character termed "Eartha Kitt."

However, at home, she was a well-grounded parent who was described as "Eartha Mae" by her daughter. It has been more than a decade since she died after suffering from colon cancer, but she remains in the heart of her only child, who idolizes her.

Shapiro often talks about her mother. Recently, she shared a black-and-white throwback snap where her deceased mom, who was in a matching two-piece swimsuit, held her fiercely.


The photo displayed the closeness between the mother and daughter and it also showed off the legend's fit physique, flat stomach, and toned legs. Her caption read:


"The temps are rising! Wear your sunscreen!! #weekendvibes #motherdaughterlove #MyMotherWasMyRoleModel."

Before going online to flaunt her undying love for her mom, Shapiro had sat down to share revealing stories about the admirable bond she shared with the deceased through interviews.


To her, Kitt was a mother who loved her child and did not mind showing her off in her early years. The Emmy winner and Grammy nominee was a proud parent. Kitt was left to raise her mini-me on her own after a divorce caused by her partner's drug addiction.

Kitt's daughter debuted a book in honor of her mother.

Neither fame nor the burden of catering to a child alone deterred her from instilling the correct values in Shapiro, who maintained that the lessons learned stick with her, especially that of race.


Both mother and child faced racism at some point in their lives. The entertainer was born to a Black mother and an unknown white father but was left behind due to discrimination at a tender age.

Her daughter had a Black mother and a white dad, but she decided to treat Shapiro differently, better than her mom treated her. The singer often told her daughter to see beyond race, as it boxed people and categorized humans.

Kitt's daughter debuted a book in honor of her mother. In the memoir titled "Eartha & Kitt: A Daughter's Love Story in Black & White," the author chronicled her mother's past struggles, rise to fame, strengths, and determination.
