Wendy Williams Celebrates Dad’s 91st Birthday On Instagram
Following a hiatus from social media, TV personality Wendy Williams returned to Instagram this week, sharing intimate moments with family after a series of concerning news stories.
In the latest, Williams, 57, sat hand-in-hand with her father, Thomas Williams, Sr. in an image posted Friday (Feb. 18). The two sat across each other in separate chairs and the two appeared to be in high spirits as they appeared to chat.
“Daddy’s 91st birthday!,” she said on IG. “Enjoying it in the most relaxing way possible.”
Thomas is a retired English teacher and school principal.
According to PEOPLE, the IG account was launched earlier this week. Before her dedication post to her beloved father, Wendy posted a five-minute video on Thursday (Feb. 17). Filmed by her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., Wendy talked about her day-to-day routine in Florida and enjoying the change in pace from her traditional New York lifestyle.
Wendy’s digital offering was a welcomed message from her fanbase. One Instagram follower stated that he has been watching old clips of the talk show host and is eager to “just to get my WENDY fix in!!”
Strolling the Florida beach, she continued to speak about her lifestyle change, including her diet and exercise regimen.
"I love [it] here in Florida as much as I do New York, but they are two very different things and people. But New York is my heart, and Florida is a beautiful place — beautiful, regular. Sometimes weird in a good way. Aren't we all weird in a good way?"
"Excuse me, I am going back stronger. At 56 years old, there are things that happen to people," Wendy said in response to her son asking about the rumors circulating around her health status. Wendy misstates her age. She turned 57 in 2021.
