Remember back in 2009 when the now-model Paris Jackson was thrown into the spotlight at the age of 11, after the sudden death of her father and megastar, Michael Jackson?
Well, it’s nearly been a decade since that fateful day, so it should come as no surprise to you that Paris – the beautiful daughter of one of the most successful and talented artists to ever step foot on the planet – is now 19 and that her career in the fashion industry has been going from strength to strength.
If you’ve been following news updates on her life, you’ll know that Paris has grown up to be a very bold and outspoken young woman who has no qualms about spreading powerful messages.
Indeed, she is no stranger to flashing a bit of armpit hair in her Instagram photos and rightly believes she shouldn’t be shamed for it.
Paris Jackson has now given her millions of adoring fans a never-before-seen look at a family home video from when she was a little girl.
Paris, who is now 19 years old, uploaded the video of herself and her brother, Prince, playing around in pure joy and happiness to her Instagram page.
The footage provided fans with a sweet and very rare glimpse into what it was like being the children to the doting father and gloal superstar. Check it out below:
The video, which is currently undated, was filmed by Michael and it features both children excitedly trying to get the most attention in front of the camera.
The late King Of Pop, being the passionate performer that he always was, encourages his kids to pull their best dance moves out of the bag, saying “Let me see you dance”.
Prince obliges with some energetic dancing, much to Paris’s delight.
Prince does as he is told and shows off his best dance moves and Paris is clearly impressed by her brother’s repertoire.
Paris shared the touching video in celebration of Prince’s 21st birthday and the message she left for her brother in the caption just goes to show how close they really are:
“My dearest brother. I could fly to the moon and back a thousand times and the distance still wouldn’t amount to how much I adore you. I’ve always looked up to you, and to this day you’re still the greatest role model I could ever hope for. “You’ve always been my best friend in the whole wide universe and I’m so lucky to have you in my life.”
“I couldn’t have wished for our friendship to turn out any better. We may not have our water guns and crash bandicoot, but we have so much more. you’re the most fun, genuine, determined and hilarious person I know.”
“And it makes ma soul happy to know dat i can always count on you, and no matter where we are in the world and in life, my home is with you and the little guy. “I love you so much, gooko. i’m so proud of you. Happy birthday.”
Michael passed away back in June of 2009 when Paris was just 11 years old, her eldest brother, Prince was 12 and her younger brother, Blanket was seven.
Their father Michael was married to nurse Debbie from 1996 to 1999 and the couple had both Prince and Paris.
When the pair divorced, Michael was given full custody of Paris and Prince and the ‘Thriller’ star ultimately went on to have a third child, Blanket. Blanket is now 15 and was conceived using a surrogate mother who has always been anonymous.
Clearly, the family are a very tight-knit bunch, and considering all the drama that has been thrown their way in recent years, it’s pretty spectacular that they have managed to retain their unconditional love for each other.
We wish everyone in Jackson family well and hope their careers in the industry continue to flourish.
