Marlon Wayans Talks Fatherhood and the Time His Son Made Him Cry (VIDEO)
Few families are as all-around hilarious as the Wayans clan. Honestly, have you ever Wikipediaed their family tree? Every branch seems to have another well-known star attached!
So no wonder then that one of the littlest Wayans has already proven himself capable of tugging on heartstrings. The tyke’s dad, Marlon (aka one of the Wayans responsible for Scary Movie and White Chicks as well as a star in A Haunted House and The Heat) recently chatted up HuffPost Live. When a viewer beamed in to ask what’s been the 41-year-old’s most humbling experience thus far in life, he had an answer at the ready (we’re still trying to figure out what we would’ve said).
“It happens every day, man … You look at the smallest things,” Marlon says. “One of the things that humbled me recently was my son on Father’s Day.”
Lil’ Shawn Howell Wayans wrote his pops a card in which, as his Dad explains, he “expressed how much he appreciated all that I do as a father, just how much work I put in and how great I am and how I teach him to be a man.”
Obviously moved by the sweet card, Marlon says he cried upon seeing how his son “appreciates the small things” even with the many privileges he’s been granted.
Anybody else tearing up because y’all, we be bawlin'.
