American actor, musician, director, producer, writer, and consultant is also a proud father of a beautiful baby girl, and a recent video shared to social media shows his strong bond with her.
Malcolm-Jamal Warner welcomed a sweet little girl into his life in May 2017 with his girlfriend. Since then, The Cosby Show actor has taken to fatherhood with aplomb, and although he hasn't shared his daughter's name, shares plenty of photos of her.
A recent post to his Instagram account showed him dancing around the couple's living room carrying his 14-month-old daughter.
The little toddler was wearing nothing but her diaper, and dad seemed to be close to matching in his underwear and a long-sleeved maroon shirt. He sand along to the tune playing as he danced with her.
Within just a day, the post had already received over 112,000 views, and more than 22,000 likes.
"Our livingroom is no stranger to mommy-daddy-daughter dance parties. Top picks are Itsy Bitsy Spider by Go Fish (Party Like A Preschooler, that joint goes hard) and Mi Gente by @jbalvin(gotta feed that boriqua blood)," he wrote in the caption.
He continued, sharing that they had all just woken up from a nap, and while he had wanted to do some cleaning, his little girl just wanted attention.
"She wanted to be held in a low key whiney 14 month old way. For a brief moment I felt myself getting low key frustrated. But then I stopped what I was doing bc she didn't care about a messy kitchen. All she wanted was for her daddy to hold her. Something that simple makes my daughter happy. Something THAT simple. And it was a moment I didn't want to take for granted," he continued.
The actor has kept his private life very private since the highly publicized death of his girlfriend Michelle Thomas in 1998, and has not shared the name of his baby girl or her mother, but has stated that they are very much in love.
He also hasn't shared photos or videos of the little girl's face, giving her the best chance of some privacy from the prying public eyes.
At 47 years old, this is Warner's first child after a string of failed celebrity relationships. Despite being a bit of a late bloomer, Warner adores being a father, and loves his little girl endlessly.
