Remember Kimberly Parker from 'Moesha'? She shares photo of look-alike son on his 15th birthday
Actress and singer Countess Vaughn, best known as Kimberly Ann Parker on Moesha and its spin-off The Parkers, took to Instagram to wish her son a happy birthday.
In the image, the woman was portrayed slightly smiling to the camera with her short bright red hair on full display. Her son Jaylen was right behind her wearing a dark grey hoodie and seriously looking at the camera.
For the caption, Countess wished a happy 15th birthday to her son and pointed out that he was a ‘good kid’ and that she was very proud of him.
As soon as she uploaded that picture, her fans and followers took to the comment section to congratulate the boy and to share their thoughts.
One of them was Instagram user @speakupcc, who confessed that it was a beautiful family photo and thanked Countess for sharing those loving moments with her followers.
According to Height Line, Countess is a funny, feisty, and controversial actress who reached the highest peak of her career in the ‘90s when she worked on important sitcoms.
Her career started at the age of three when she began singing in her local church. Thanks to her outstanding vocal skills, she became the Junior Vocalist Champion and overall Junior Champion of Star Search in 1988.

Soon after that, Countess got the role of Alexandria DeWitt in the fourth season of 227, which earned her a Young Artist Award nomination for Young Actress in a Supporting Role in a Comedy or Drama Series or Special.
After getting an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 1998 thanks to her role as Kimberly in Moesha, Countess was a series regular of the show’s spin-off The Parkers.
When that series came to its end in 2004, things would change for her as she stopped landing important roles. In 2014, she became a series regular of Hollywood Divas, but the reality show was canceled in 2016.
Height Line finally reported that Countess has lost a couple of pounds in recent years as she adjusted her diet and started exercising for 30-45 minutes a day.
