Have you wondered what ever happened to the three adorable child actors who played Bernie Mac's precocious nieces and nephew on The Bernie Mac Show? Wait until you see what they look like now!

The sitcom aired on Fox TV for five seasons from November 14, 2001, to April 14, 2006. The series featured Bernie as himself raising his fictional wife Wanda's sister's three kids: Jordan (Jeremy Suarez), Bryana (Dee Dee Davis), and Vanessa (Camille Winbush). Wanda was played by Kellita Smith.

The series was inspired by a skit in Bernie's standup comedy routine about his sister's children. In real life, Mac was married with one daughter.

Sadly, Bernie "Mac" McCullough died of a respiratory illness in 2008 at age 50.

According to Camilla's Instagram page, the three young actors are "Up to something." She didn't specify what they have in store for their fans.

Camilla, 29, has earned her three Image Awards and a Young Artist Award, and she currently plays Lauren Treacy, a recurring character in The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Jeremy, 28, who is Black and Puerto Rican, voices characters in animated films. He got married in November 2017 to his wife Maria.

Dee Dee, 23, recently graduated from Prairie State College in Chicago Heights.

    Correction: They were raising Bernie’s sister’s three kids.

  • xenaD

    Still Look the same and babygirl looks just like this girl I used to know

  • Yoni7

    They all "grewed" up now. I thought Dee-Dee (baby girl) had a baby herself.I
    I always thought Kelita Smith was fly asf in that show. I've always been a fan of Bernie! I was sad when he died. Sarcoidosis. I think Tisha Martin-Campbell has it as well, if I can remember correctly.

  • Yardgirl

    Awww my favorite “back in the day show” The kids have grown up to be so lovely, Camille is gorgeous!! RIP Bernie!

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Loved Bernie but I just didn’t care for this show.

  • BingBangBoom

    This use to be my show.. So funny..

  • KLo

    love y'all

  • justlooking

    This awesome! This is a great and warm story. I'm sure they reflect on wise words of their TV dad.

    Congrats to them all!

  • Soon2BWife

    Dee Dee grew up in the same suburb I did and she graduated from the college I used to work at! She is truly a homegirl!

  • xxxgracious

    I miss Bernie...I just watched "Guess Who" the other day with Ashton Kutcher fine ass and was rolling ??? I love the part when they asked Ashton to tell black jokes at the dinner table. Granddaddy look like he wasnt having it lmao.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Does anyone know if Camille Winbush and Kevin Williams (The Chi) are related?

  • Renee26

    Awwe this is an awesome update!! Made me smile ?

  • Guest

    I think Dee-Dee did have a baby recently. I think it was on MTO.

  • Marlika

    They still look the same! God they’re all doing well!!?

  • Vegas1989

    Yeah that Sarcoidosis is no joke, My friend husband died of Sarcoidosis. It was so quick. He had stop smoking then he was working with a company and they sprayed something and then he ended up at the hospital. I got the call and I was like okay what do you need me to do. He was talking and then couldn't talk no more then fell in a coma and the died like three days later...It was sad..

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    glad they are doing so well

  • ???TheRider???

    Thank you! I thought so.

  • Connie

    Still is one of my faves. Miss Bernie so much!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Glad to see that they are doing well... It doesn't even seem that long since Bernie passed...

  • the guest

    Beautiful children who've grown up to be beautiful adults. Congratulations on all their successes and more to come.

  • DroneRivers

    Awww they still all look the same. Glad to hear they're all doing well!

  • T Willis

    I’d rather have a Where Are They Now post on My Wife & Kids... ?... loved Bernie but I just couldn’t get into this show.

  • Chicagowise

    Dee Dee is wearing a Star of David. She's either Jewish or a gangster disciple, which is a prominent gang in Chicago. Either way, that necklace could spell trouble.

  • Kimocha

    It's good to hear that these former child actors are doing good!... I used to love the show & to be honest, I always thought Camilla Winbush was Angela Winbush & Ron Isley's daughter bc she looks just like BOTH of them to me & couldn't NOBODY tell me different back in the day until I found out she wasn't on my own... And I STILL think she favors them both!.. But I guess that's just me, Lol!... And I never woulda guessed that Jeremy was part Puerto Rican at all!... RIP Mr. Mac, you are surely missed!

  • Ghost

    OT- Sandra can we get a post on Nipseys sister filing for guardianship of his oldest child. Says mother can’t take care of her...find this very interesting after his death.. she lived with her for 10 years! What’s up now?

  • therealashland

    Bernie raised them lil crack babies right..

    I’m kidding but Bernie did want to make sure they did well in life.

    I miss Bernie so much

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That's awesome! They all look exactly the same!

  • hottlanta

    Fab show. I look at it everyday. My fav scene was when bernie was afraid of getting older n that old man was sitting in the chair with a stop watch on the side of the bed while he tried 2 make love 2 wanda.????????

  • Chicagowise

    I'm the opposite. I love The Bernie Mac Show, I can't stand My Wife and Kids. The lead actor... whose name escapes me, is obnoxious.

  • Soda

    Damon Wayans? For me, it was Tisha--- couldn't stand her on Martin.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Say what? The daughter was living with the sister for 10 yrs? where the hell was the mother besides being social media taunting my baby Lauren? Or did I read this wrong?

  • Chicagowise

    Yes! I don't know why I couldn't think of his name!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I love that show. It had real life issues and was funny as hell! Damon Wayans is my favorite Wayans.

  • Soda

    I never watched My Wife & Kids but can tell you that Damon is in poor health and Tisha is in the poor house.

  • Yoni7

    Oh no! How old was he?

  • Alextra Ballard

    This finna be real interesting

  • Chicagowise

    Really?! What's wrong with him?

  • Tlowe89

    Auntie, they were his fictional sister’s three kids not the wife’s sister

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Hmmm is that why he is leaving Lethal Weapon? Do you know what's wrong with him? And you wrong for talking bout Tisha lol she stays working tho.

  • Soda

    He quit the tv show Lethal Weapon saying he is diabetic and old.

  • Chicagowise

    I liked the cute one with the curl. He had a show with another Wayans brother, but I can't think of his name.

  • Chicagowise

    Wow! Not a fan, but I am sorry to hear he isn't doing well. After all, he is part of the legacy of In Living Color, which was a groundbreaking show!

  • Kimocha

    From my understanding the girls mother, Tanisha is strung out on drugs and alcohol... Especially after Nipsey's been murdered bc she was supposedly still in love with him and was hoping that they would get back together eventually, I guess... I also heard she used to be real cool with Nipsey's killer, Eric Holder too...Allegedly, lol!

  • Soda

    Did you know that one of Donna Summer's daughters was on the show?

  • Tlowe89

    I couldn’t stand Martin.... sorry correction. I was talking about Duane Martin

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Oh yeah damn can't remember his name either. he played in White Chicks?

  • Soda

    I hated the way he acted like Pam was less than Gina.

  • Chicagowise

    Really?! No. I had no idea! What's her name? I LOVED Donna! Her death really hit me hard.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Whatt! Martin was the funniest show! I love him in Bad Boys too can't wait for Bad Boys 3 but other than that he is Meh I wouldn't pay to see him in standup.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Hmm. I honestly never wondered where they was, nice to know they alright tho.

  • Chicagowise

    Yes! With his fine @$$! ?

  • Soda

    Her name is Brooklyn Sudano.

  • Tlowe89

    Oh my bad I was talking about Duane Martin, Tisha husband. I loved Martin though

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I think he banged both of them that's why Pam kept her mouth shut through all that mess he and Gina went through even though they were best friends. that mess was the demise of the show.

  • Chicagowise

    I loved Martin! I had a huge crush on Cole!

  • Karen Brady

    Juicy.. I have to look this up. Be nice if they find a way to keep the kids under one roof though.

  • Karen Brady

    THIS!

  • Chicagowise

    Ok. Sorry. You're talking about Tisha's hubby.

  • Karen Brady

    I hear you. I watched it in syndication on BOUNCE. It wasn't the bomb at all but I had some good laughs here and there. I thought the nephew was the funniest. Now a show that I couldn't get into was My Wife & Kids. And while we're on the topic.. lol.. couldn't get into Everybody Hates Chris which I watch some mornings now while getting dressed. There is a Kwanzaa episode though that makes me HOLLER!!! :-)

  • Soda

    Maybe it was the stress of long work hours. He said he's returning to stand up comedy.

  • Tlowe89

    Apparently Gina wanted out of the show contract because she wanted to pursue a music career and when that wasn’t allowed she created a fib to cause controversy to get out

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Oh you talking bout Will Smiths side piece? lmao I honestly only remember him from what's the name of that show Husbands of Hollywood or something with Kevin hart? yeah he was kinda funny on that show.

  • Chicagowise

    That kid deserved an Emmy! He was hilarious!

  • Tlowe89

    He was on Will Smith’s show All of Us with Lisa Ray

  • T Willis

    Lmao! Aw man.... I meant the kids.... Junior, Claire, Katie... and Katie’s little boyfriend, Franklin lol....

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I believe it. smdh Well even though her music career never took off she stayed working because I would think nobody would fuk with her after that but I honestly could not see anyone else playing that role on my wife and kids but her. The chemistry was insane. they seem like a real dysfunctional family. lol

  • Karen Brady

    Ugh.. even when I flip channels now and see that show I can't flip past it fast enough..lol

  • T Willis

    I think I remember him saying he had diabetes/high blood pressure... or something like that... he mentioned wanting to spend more quality time with his family

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Oooooh yeah he sure was. I actually liked that show.

  • Karen Brady

    :-)

  • T Willis

    Lmao! Damon Wayans? Noooooo I love him! ?... but yeah it had it’s ridiculous moments, but they had a really great chemistry ...

  • Alextra Ballard

    Omg....cdfu....this shidt is sad and funny at the same time

  • Karen Brady

    Brooklyn...I believe is her name (could be wrong). Pretty girl.. AND YES to DONNA!!!!! A true legend and beauty!

  • T Willis

    I hope that’s not true. Tisha could sang but she never had a future in music.... but then again I used to think that about Jamie Foxx and he found success in music, despite his comedic background.

  • Yardgirl

    I never watched either.

  • Tlowe89

    Yeah that’s why Tachina stayed cool with both Martin and Tisha. If you know your good girlfriend was sexually harassed or assaulted by one of your close male friends, why would you still be friends with him????? Bcus it never happened. She wanted out of her contract or have lesser screen time bcus she wanted her music career and when production and legal said no ma’am she created drama so she could get it. And Tachina was probably like ????? I don’t have nothing to do with this tomfoolery

  • T Willis

    They had great chemistry. All of them - Tisha/Damon & the kids - it really worked well.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I always thought he quit the show because he saw the ratings tank after they fired the other dude and he was basically jumping off a sinking ship sorta speak. I hope he gets well because he is definitely my favorite Wayans.

  • T Willis

    Yep! That’s exactly my suspicion too ? cause it happened too conveniently after his costar caused all that drama

  • Logan Roberts

    Glad to see their not coked out & whored out.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I love lethal weapon,one of my fav shows

  • Jordan’s Memory

    My thing is why wasn't she living with her dad if the mom was having issues.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Like them old folks usta say,he got the suga diabetes

  • Li-Wright

    They're "normal", thank god. :)

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Yes when the old guy was on there. I do not like the new guy, but apparently the old guy was just as crazy in real life as he plays on TV so he had to be fired.

  • Chicagowise

    Just saying. If you're black and from Chicago, that necklace means something sinister. If the wrong person sees that hanging around her neck....

  • Jordan’s Memory

    right as soon as he got fired he announced he was leaving.

  • Tell the truth

    They still look the same ?

  • NewNew

    Damñ ?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I think everybidy was funny on Mart’n

  • Karen Brady

    OH every good question!!!!!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Cole was hilarious

  • deidre martin

    i thought in the show they were Bernie's sisters kids not Wanda's?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile neither has anybidy else

  • Jordan’s Memory

    One of my favorite episodes was when they all was hungry but it was a snow storm outside and they had Cole go get some pizza and when he took a long time to return they started to go look for him and when they open the door he was frozen stuff as he was about to knock on the door. lol that shyt was hilarious!

  • Yardgirl

    You are correct, the write up is not.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Yes, you are correct they were.

  • Andrea Williams

    You are right. Bernie and Wanda had no kids of their own.

  • Guest

    Interesting. What is also interesting is XXXtenaccion's mother blocking the paternity test (according to MTO)his baby mom's is trying to get for their child.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I guess I’m the only one here who didn’t think “Mac” was funny. He did that Apollo stand up routine that was sorta kinna funny and folks ran wid it.. I guess it’s an individual taste

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Smdh money really brings the devil out of people. I mean whether she may think that girl was a gold-digger or not she has his son and she has in my opinion more right to that money than she does.

  • Guest

    It seems like she was living with her father. The sister said she has been raising her with Nipsey. Don't really know what the truth is though.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I don't think he was funny on the show. He was clearly trying to please the bosses if you know what I mean, but in movies like how to be a playa and some stand up he is funny as hell. sometimes he don't even have to say anything the expression on his face had me in tears. lol He is definitely missed.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Hmmm that's weird they have a like a million photos of him and Lauren with his and her kids but never his daughter. just an observation. It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds.

  • Sha

    They were.

  • facingrealit1

    I was under the impression that the girl lived with Nipsey.

  • hottlanta

    Dont take it personally. It is all good n folks do like différent things. I loved the lion king g n when one of my friends went 2 c it she said it was the worst thing ever the lion king is making stacks. Had she been a théâtre reviewer it would have never made it out of the gate .

  • leapyearpisces

    All I know babygirl was the worst child actor EVER...her and that non-acting child that played Candace child on the Haves and Have Nots.

  • hottlanta

    Everybody hate chris was the ish. Miss it soooo much.

  • leapyearpisces

    based on the few things I have seen about her here and there, i'm gonna put my money on the Gangster Disciple narrative.

  • leapyearpisces

    That's how I feel about KeKe Palmer....ion care she got her parents..they adopted her because I just KNOW she is Angela Bassett's and Laurence Fishburne's biological daughter, and AINT NOBODY gonna make me feel different. I think she was created in that sex scene in What's Love Got to DO With It...ion care, ion care, ion care, ion care, what NOBODY says. LOLOLOLOLOL

  • Karen Brady

    He IS funny!!!!!

  • jujumanji

    Secret Life of the American Teenager went off the air in 2013.... so there's no currently there. I dont think many people were wondering where they were though. I'm just praying a reboot of the kids as adults isnt in the works. I'm over reboots!

  • Chicagowise

    Really?! That's disappointing.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Bernie(r.i.p.)(whom I worked with a few times & first met on this very show) was the most nicest, humble man. I was actually scared to meet him. I thought he would be mean and standoffish in person(like some people say about his use to be friend)But he came up to me and introduced himself in the most friendliest way.

    This show had the best food U can imagine. One of the cast members is unrecognizable before the make up room.

  • dontgetblocked

    Glad to see they're doing well.

  • mzwhang90210

    Kcool I was fortunate enough to meet Bernie when I worked at a radio station in Houston. THE most down to earth, HUMBLE & genuine man you'd ever want to meet.
    He is sorely missed.

  • mzwhang90210

    LOL LYP....you sound like my late uncle, complaining about how Jimmy JJ Walker couldn't act his way out of a brown paper bag on Good Times. ??

  • mzwhang90210

    Good to see them all doing so well!!
    At least none of them were arrested for murder, like the actor that played DL Hughleys son on his sitcom.
    A former child star from “The Hughleys” sitcom was acquitted Friday of murder and gang charges stemming from the 2011 stabbing of a 26-year-old man outside a Stockton nightclub.
    Dorjan “Dee Jay” Daniels, 24, of Fontana played the son of comedian D.L. Hughley on the 1990s sitcom.

  • currvalicious

    Would that be "Wanda"??

  • currvalicious

    Really?? She doesn't want to give up control over his estate. And rightfully so, to some woman he was laying up w/for less than a year?? These young black guys must really protect their future (sperm). Be more careful & selective in whom they chose to procreate with.

  • currvalicious

    According to TMZ, Nipsey was "caring" for his daughter until death. However, the article also stated Samantha helped care for Emani for the past 8 years. My thing is, why didn't Nipsey ever go for full custody? These side arrangements are always fine & dandy until some shyt hits the fan. Now they want to keep Tanisha's hands out of the money pot.

  • currvalicious

    True. I hardly believe Lauren was playing step mom like that. Was he & Lauren living together?

  • currvalicious

    Ooh Lordt, this is too much. I heard she's allegedly a gang member as well. When procreating w/the wrong person goes all the way wrong....

  • currvalicious

    What's going on w/Damon? Knew about Tisha & Duane for years.

  • currvalicious

    Camille has beautiful skin, hair & teeth. Luv her.

  • Tammie Reed

    I LOVED the little boy Jeremy, he cracked me up on the show! I truly miss Bernie Mac!

  • Jethro

    Always knew Camille would be a beautiful woman.

  • ALLMINE?

    Camil is bad ?

  • QueDawg6

    Doesn't matter where they are, you are still a hoe ass nigga!

  • leapyearpisces

    girl.....they need to do a behind the scenes movie on good times...DRAMA! both Esther Rolle and John Amos could not stand Jimmy Walker, and John Amos didn't want Esther to be his wife because she was significantly older than him. I think it would make a great TV-1, or BET HER movie.

  • SpiceGirl

    Looking good! Miss ya Bernard

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    Sorry but Puerto Rican is not a race it is a ethnicity or nationality. It is a culture or group of people that you share commonaliites with or culture it has nothing to do with genetics. He is black point blank period. Part of his family may be from Puerto Rico but that does not define their race bacause you can be white, black or any other race and be from Puerto Rico the same as in America. When someone ask you your race you dont say American. What does that mean?????

  • Real_Nigga_101

    You are absolutely right but blame it on the American Public School System... A lot of people still think Puerto-Rican is a race, those are the same stupid ass ignorant people who don't know the difference between Spanish and Hispanic.

  • Real_Nigga_101

    Sorry but she's too dark, I don't do dark butts.

  • Real_Nigga_101

    You must have a terrible and miserable sense of humor.

  • Judge Mental Will

    ?????.

    I love that show.. Jordan ass...lol Rest in power Bernie Mac?
