Blackish star Yara Shahid, is drop dead gorgeous and is such a positive role model to young girls everywhere. Not only is she on a hit ABC show but Yara did get former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, to write a college letter of recommendation for her. That is beyond dope!
We all can see that she is absolutely stunning but did you know she comes from a beautiful family as well? The Blackish star shared some family portraits with Glamor Magazine and had readers gushing over her Iranian father. Her “Baba” and how he met her African American mother in the story.
“Baba” is Yara’s father, Afshin Shahidi, who left Iran for the U.S. when he was eight years old. In 1992, while working in Minneapolis as a director of photography, he spotted grad student Keri Salter at a local lounge. “She ended up stalking me,” Afshin, now 47, jokes. His wife confirms: “Did he tell you I stalked him? Because I stalked him.”
She has a beautiful family. Check out some of their family pictures below!
