Once all the chaos is over, he realizes his dream of having a normal American family came true a long time ago.
Wayans is the co-creator and executive producer of My Wife and Kids. The show also stars Tisha Campbell-Martin (from “Martin”) who plays Wayans’ wife, Janet. George O. Gore II who plays his son, Jr.; Jazz Raycole who plays his older daughter, Claire; and Parker McKenna Posey who plays Kady, his youngest daughter.
