Regina King has made her way back to social media to pay tribute to her late son, Ian King on his birthday. 

We reported that on January 21st, 2022, Ian has passed away at 26 years old by an apparent suicide. Ian was the actress’ only son and to honor him, she posted a touching video on her Instagram. 

“January 19th is Ian’s Worthday. As we still process his physical absence, we celebrate his presence. We are all in different places on the planet…so is Ian,” King wrote. “His spirit is the thread that connects us. Of course, orange is your favorite color… It’s the fire and the calm. I see you in everything I breathe. My absolute favorite thing about myself is being… Regina the mother of Ian the GodKing. Continue to shine bright, my guiding light.” 

We will continue to keep Regina King in our thoughts and prayers.
