Jaleel White spent quality time at the beach and ball game with his daughter, Samaya, earlier this week. The actor shared pictures of their father-daughter adventure with Instagram fans.


“Some MCs get nervous on the mic / She real comfortable,” shared Jaleel with fans. The actor also uploaded a picture of him with Samaya at the beach. White pointed to his daughter as she enjoyed what appeared to be a tasty snack.

The star also shared pictures of Samaya during a midnight run with dad and at a friend’s pizza birthday bash. “Sometimes you gotta snatch em in their PJs for that bedtime dessert run,” said Jaleel of his and Samaya’s random trip to Pinkberry in the middle of the night. “Just to let her know, Daddy’s unpredictable,” added the star.

Jaleel is best known for his portrayal of the beloved Steve Urkel on ‘Family Matters.’ He recently made an appearance on ‘Drunk History,’ and had roles in The Preacher’s Son and The Choir Director as well. Although Jaleel is a Hollywood favorite, the star has admitted that his daughter is not fully aware of the magnitude of his career. “People ask all the time, ‘Does she know what you did?’ and I say, ‘No! You’re old, she’s young,'” joked the star during an interview with Access Hollywood.

Samaya is Jaleel White’s only child.
