Malcolm-Jamal Warner Just Became a Dad

We're still trying to find out who the mother is.

Published June 14, 2017

Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who played Theo Huxtable on the Cosby Show, is a father!

“I am elated over Malcolm's new child,” friend Phynjuar Thomas says. “I love him,” she added, also mentioning that the baby is about a week old. “I hope they name the baby after me. Phynjuar is a beautiful name."

The name of the mother is unknown, however a source told the New York Daily News that she’s an attorney from Bridgeport, Connecticut, and that she and Warner are “very much in love.”

This is Warner’s first child. Previously, he was in a relationship with Michelle Thomas, the daughter of Phynjuar, who was an actress on the Cosby Show and passed away from cancer in 1998. Subsequently, he dated Karen Malina White (also of the Cosby Show) for nearly eight years before spending two years with Emmy winner Regina King.

Congrats, Malcolm!
