The shot seemed to have been taken at an event they all attended as balloon decorations could be seen behind them. The girls all looked beautiful in casual evening dresses that showcased their respective beauties.

Lawrence's smile shone the brightest— he seemed genuinely happy to be in their midst. In his caption, the talented actor wished fathers a great day while reminding his fans about mothers who are "pulling double duty."

His fans most likely had a lot of positive things to say concerning the post; however, Lawrence had disabled the comment section.

The shot was a perfect recreation of the original "Bad Boys" poster.

Lawrence shares his three daughters with two different women. He welcomed his first, Jasmin, with his first wife, Patricia Southall, in 1995, the same year they tied the knot.

Their union lasted two years before they went their separate ways. Lawrence remained in contact with her afterward to co-parent their daughter while they retained joint custody.

He moved on with Shamicka Gibbs in 2010, and they expanded his brood when they welcomed Iyanna and Amara to the world, bringing the tally up to three.

Like their father, all three girls seem to be leaning towards a career in entertainment— Jasmin has a burning desire to be in front of the cameras as an actress, Iyanna enjoys writing and may take up scriptwriting, and Amara loves to sing.

Lawrence became one of Hollywood's top comedy stars with a successful career that began in the 1990s. In 1995, he scored his first lead film role with "Bad Boys"— the movie that gave his co-star Will Smith's career a big boost.

Since then, the actor has made several other appearances in hit movies, including sequels of "Bad Boys." Decades after the first film in the franchise was released, it remains popular.

In April, Lawrence and Smith celebrated the franchise's anniversary with a picture they shared via their respective Instagram pages.

The shot was a perfect recreation of the original "Bad Boys" poster, and it got many of their fans in their feelings. Both stars have come a long way since then, and they still remain fan favorites.
