Writer and director Angela Gibbs, one of the daughters of actress Marla Gibbs, took to Instagram to share a video of her mother’s birthday celebration.


In the recording, Angela, her sisters, and Marla were portrayed on a restaurant table with her dishes empty, suggesting that they had finished eating. As soon as she uploaded that video, her fans and followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.

One of them was Instagram user @iamamazingdi, who confessed that the video was beautiful. They added that everyone looked great and finished by wishing Marla a happy birthday.

Marla, who turned 87 on June 14, is best known for her role as Florence Johnston in the sitcom The Jeffersons, for which she got five nominations for Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.


After that, she would start working in another popular TV series titled 227, wherein she took the role of Mary Jenkins for 115 episodes. Later, Marla portrayed many supporting characters in several films and series before working on her next big project, The Hughleys.


For that sitcom, she played Hattie Mae Hughley, one of the most loved supporting characters in the series. The latest important role Marla has taken in recent years was Grandma Eddy in The First Family.


The actress was married to her high school love Jordan Gibbs from 1955 to 1973. During their time together, the couple had three children, Angela, Dorian, and Joseph.


From her three children, Angela is the only one who followed Marla’s footsteps as she became an actress and later started her career as a director, producer, and writer.

She has acting credits in films like Love Jacked, and Straight Outta Compton, and TV series like The People vs. OJ, Shameless, Adult Swim's, and Black Jesus.

Angela has won two NAACP Image Awards for her theatrical productions Checkmates and The Meeting.
