Last night’s episode of ‘Mary Mary’ was definitely sentimental as it shed light on Warryn Campbell’s 40th birthday. The music producer had his wife and kids beside him as he celebrated a milestone in his life’s story.
Instead of being the guest of honor at the celebration, Warryn honored family members and friends who have impacted his life over the years. Tyrese Gibson and Shanice Wilson were two of many attendees at the celebration. Tyrese commented on Warryn’s decision to give, instead of receive, on his special day.
“The reason I love this so much is because normally when you hear great things being said about people that we love, it’s normally at a funeral,” he said. “It’s just beautiful and selfless of Warryn to say, ‘On my fortieth I want to honor everybody else instead of people honoring me.'”
It was just the episode prior to this week’s showing that revealed Warryn’s health struggles that resulted in him being rushed to emergency. Erica walked into the house and found her husband sitting on the kitchen floor in pain. Apparently the pressure to produce another Mary Mary album, coupled with poor dieting, was overwhelming. All in all, Warryn was able to recover after surgery and enjoyed a marvelous celebration for his fortieth birthday. The celebrity dad even shed a tear when his wife and oldest daughter, Krista, performed an original song.
