Hill Harper is giving us good vibes with a recent candid of him with his son, Pierce Hill Harper. The actor shared the photo with his Instagram fans earlier this week to the excitement of thousands of his fans.
The candid of Hill and Pierce was quite simple. The celebrity father was photographed while carrying his son along what appeared to be a shoreline. “Let us voraciously protect each other— Be there for each other,” Hill captioned underneath the picture. “Hold each other up,” the actor admonished. “Protect our men, young men, and boys. We are all in this together.”
Dozens responded to Hill Harper’s candid and words. “Thanks for being a prime example of the caliber of men we should raise our boys to emulate,” one fan wrote online. Another of Hill Harper’s social media followers wrote, “One of the few true role models left in the entertainment business. An example for men to follow. Much respect, brother.”
It was nearly two years ago that Hill delved into his decision to adopt his son. “[Adopting Pierce] was the greatest decision I’ve ever made and I’ve never been happier,” Harper said. “For years, I always wanted to be a parent,” the actor added. “I thought, you know, you get married, you have kids.”
Hill Harper’s perspective began to change in 2015. The actor decided to adopt a newborn after his attorney alerted him of the opportunity to become a parent. “I really felt like it was God telling me to do it,” Hill revealed. “I’m so glad that he chose me, and [Pierce’s mom] and God and the universe chose me.”
