Mike Epps and his son, Mike Epps Jr., are taking over the Internet. The comedian recently shared a cute candid that featured him with his “mini-me” with Instagram fans.
Both big and little Mike wore matching attire as the celebrity father rocked a white t-shirt while his son wore a onesie. Little and big Mike smiled for the photographer in a moment that was simply precious. “Daddy’s Boy Lil Mike Do whatcha like,” Mike Epps Sr. captioned underneath the candid. “So cute,” Stephanie Mills said. “How y’all keep having the same d*mn baby,” another fan asked in reference to Mike Jr. having physical features similar to his older sister, Indiana Rose.
Mike and his wife, Kyra Epps, welcomed their son last year. Mike Jr. arrived just a little over a year after his older sister. “Son, we prayed for you,” Kyra wrote to her and Mike’s son after giving birth. “You have officially rocked our world,” she added. “Mama loves you so much.”
Mike Sr., who has four more daughters in addition to Indiana Rose, was also excited for a son. The comedian expressed his desire to have a boy child years before Indiana made him a father for the fifth time.
“I wish I had a son,” Mike told PEOPLE at the time. “My mother had eight sons and one girl,” he added. “My mother cried every day,” Mike admitted. ‘A woman can’t control a little boy that much. You think they can, but it’s like dealing with a little man.”
It seemed Mike Epps would have the reverse effect of having all girls at one point. Then, he and Kyra conceived their son. “My first year of motherhood has been nothing short of amazing,” Kyra told her social media fans several months ago. “It was important for me to give baby Indy a baby sister or brother that she could grow up with and be just as close as I was with my siblings,” Mrs. Epps said.
Mike Epps Jr. celebrates his first birthday in October.
