Comedic actor Mike Epps and his wife Kyra Robinson Epps welcomed their newborn baby on March 12 and awed their fans and contemporaries with the first adorable video of the infant, Indiana Rose Epps.
“Allow us to introduce to you our newest addition to the family,” Epps penned for his six million Instagram video on Sunday, Mar. 22.
Epps, 49, catapulted to fame via HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” and especially through his iconic role as “Day Day” in Next Friday and Friday After Next. He’s also had star appearances in a number of blockbuster films including Girls Trip, Hangover, Dr. Doolittle and Dolemite is My Name. He is already the father of four daughters from previous relationships, and this makes the first child for Mike and Kyra Epps, who were married in June 2019.
Kyra Epps also commemorated her monumental moment with a caption for her 100K IG fans: “9 pounds 12 ounces on 3/12,” said the NAACP Image Award-winning television producer saying, “Mommy loves you beyond what I can even understand.”
A bevy of celebrity pals quickly offered congratulations to Epps, especially from his comedic pals.
