Actress and model Tracee Ellis Ross, best known for the comedy series Girlfriends, took to Instagram to share a photo and a video of her father on Father’s Day.


Her post consisted of a two-media slideshow. The first one was a video that portrayed Tracee and music business manager Robert Ellis Silberstein in what the man thought it was a selfie.

Tracee was wearing a black coat while her father put on a navy shirt and had a backpack on, too. At the beginning of the video, the pair was smiling for the camera as if it was a photo.

However, Tracee’s laugh set clear that it was a joke just to make Robert smile for a long time. When he realized it, he just turned his head, but then smiled back at the camera.


The second part of the slideshow was a photo that was taken several years ago. It showed a much younger Tracee sitting next to Robert, who was gently placing his face on his daughter’s face.


For the caption, the actress only wrote that she loved Robert and wished him a happy Father’s Day. As soon as she posted that photo, her fans and followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts on how similar the pair look.


One of them was Instagram user Lawand Streeter, who seemed to be surprised by how much Tracee looks like her father. User Catrice Greer also pointed out that the pair looked like twins. Greer finally admitted that their joy was ‘adorable.’


According to Height Line, Robert was born on January 5, 1946, in Elberon, New Jersey and was raised in a wealthy family famed for manufacturing Jewish garment. He married Diana Ross, Tracee’s mother, in January 1971.

During their time together, the couple welcomed to the world two children, Tracee and Chudney Ross. Unfortunately for the family, Robert and Diana parted ways in 1977, but decided to remain best friends.
