Jaleel with daughter and parents.

Jaleel White and daughter Samaya share a tender moment on the set of a yet-to-be disclosed movie. While taking a break from filming, the actor shared in a bit of one-on-one conversation with his sweet. “[Samaya]: Daddy if ur the police that means you can put people in jail? [Jaleel]: Any boy who bothers you baby, yes, I will be putting him in jail,” tweeted the star.


White has expressed nothing but delight in Samaya since her birth in 2009. He recently told Access that she understands what he does for a living and demands her movie time with him. “She’s old enough to understand that Daddy goes to work, she is old enough to understand that Daddy’s work puts him on the TV,” said the actor. “She will come hit me over the head with the ‘Judy Moody’ DVD and say, ‘Put Daddy in!’ and I think that’s really awesome.”

Samaya is Jaleel’s only child.
