Morris Chestnut’s Daughter, Paige Is A Model And She Has His Entire Face

As it turns out, the most beautiful man has passed his genes directly to his daughter.

OK so, Morris Chestnut. Morris Lamonttttt Chestnut. The most perfectly created being walking the face of this earth. He's carefully crafted, and damnit, he should be scientifically studied for replication. Like, seriously. I need for he and his wife Pam, to get back in the lab and spawn, because the world needs more Chestnuts; we deserve it.

And all the while, while we were drooling over his movies (Under Seige, The Best Man franchise, Boyz n the Hood) the 52-year-old has maintained his image of a proud husband, uplifting the culture, and bringing healthy black love to the forefront for over 25 years (he and his wife married in 1995).

Chestnut once credited their longevity to respect and love, and using their understanding of who each of them are in the relationship as a guide.

"I let my wife be the woman. You know? I let her be the woman…And she, in turn, when it comes down to it, she lets me be the man."

Whew.

And since, the two have been holding down the family goals hashtag, with dad being the face of the brand, and mom protecting home.

Additionally, our favorite chiseled icon is the proud father of two children: son, Grant, and daughter, Paige, who are each in their 20's and emerging as the next generation of Chestnuts. Primarily Paige, who is a commercial, print, and runway model signed to Wunder Management. And sis has been taking on the industry her way, all while she rocks her dad's entire face.

Most recently, pre-pandemic, she made her runway debut in the Matt Sarafa fashion show during New York Fashion Week, with her dad posting on his Instagram:

"There's a saying, "A daughter may outgrow your lap, but will never outgrow your heart." That...is very true.
#prouddad #nyfw"

She added:

"I had a wonderful time working with his incredible team and models. this was my first time walking in Nyfw and I'm so glad I got to experience it with such a talented, fun, and down to earth group of people. check out Matt's new collection it's [fire emoji]!!"

Paige is splitting her time between school and the modeling world, and she surely has her parents support as she makes her way into the entertainment industry, following the steps of her famous dad. On her journey into modeling and adulthood, Chestnut let Wendy Williams in on what he and Pam have learned to embrace most:

"We realize as parents they're going to make mistakes and you just have to be there for them when they do. [But you know that with] certain values and beliefs in them, they're going to go out and do the right thing."

We are so excited to see Paige navigate her way through the industry and make a name for herself. *Cough* Rihanna, Fenty, give our girl a call! *Cough*

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
