Keenen Ivory Wayans surprises model daughter at her runway debut

Clear the runway!

Model Nala Wayans got a big surprise at the Sherri Hill runway show when she saw her famous father Keenen sitting in the front row, next to actor Jamie Foxx, whose daughter Corinne Fox was also a model in the show.

“Keenen didn’t tell his daughter (he) was flying out and surprised her with a bouquet of red roses,” according to one attendee. “He wanted to sit second row not to distract her, but he ran into buddy Jamie Foxx so they ended up sitting together front row.”

We’re also told that Keenen snuck backstage after the show and told his catwalking kid he was very proud.

One jet-setter behind the scenes tells us that “Corine shared (how) her dad has opened many doors for her, but sometimes it’s harder to pave your own way when you have a famous dad.”

This wasn’t the frist go around for 23-year-old Foxx. She made her runway debut in Kanye West’s 2016 fashion show, which apparently didn’t discourage her from staying in the business.

Noticeably not present at the show was actress and fashionista Katie Holmes, to whom Foxx has been romantically linked for four years through rumors, which finally appear to have been confimed last week when photos surfaced of Holmes and Foxx holding hands while strolling together on an otherwise empty beach. Corinne’s mom is Connie Kline, whom Foxx reportedly dated “briefly” in the ’90s.

Nala’s mom is actress Daphne Wayans, to whom Keenen was married from 2001 to 2005.

Jamie and Keenen first bonded in 1991 when Foxx joined up with the cast of “In Living Color” for the sketch show’s third season.
