Marlon Wayans is a very funny guy, but he takes his most important role—fatherhood—seriously.

Yesterday on WhoSay, Marlon shared a heartfelt happy birthday message to his twelve-year-old son, saying: “To have the gift of you as a son really lets me know there is a God and he is wonderful and generous. What an amazing child you are. Handsome, sweet, loving, funny, kind, caring, intelligent, adventurous, athletic and so many other things wrapped up in that little body. You are a light dub, when u walk in a room your presence is quietly felt (unlike my loud ass where it’s definitely just heard.)”

Shawn was born on Super Bowl Sunday in 2002, so the two celebrated the occasion by hanging out at Super Bowl XLVIII.
