Recently, Michael made a surprising comeback as Killmonger in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and is now revisiting another of his iconic film roles in Creed.
One of the remarkable aspects of Michael’s acting career is his unwavering intensity in every role he portrays. Additionally, his bond with his parents is another constant in his life.
Michael B Jordan’s Parents
Michael B Jordan was born on Feb. 9, 1987, in Santa Ana, Calif., to Donna Jordan and Michael A. Jordan. Although Michael A. Jordan’s profession is unclear.
The Jordan family has a tradition of naming their sons Michael, but with different middle initials, which explains the “B” in Michael B. Jordan.
Despite the tradition, Michael B. Jordan expressed his desire to break it with his first son during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
He explained that he felt pressure to live up to his father’s name and did not want to place that same burden on his child.
Michael’s Mom Supports Her Son’s Acting Career
Michael’s mom supports her son’s acting career and admits she can’t bear to watch him die on screen.
Despite Michael no longer living with his parents, he remains extremely close to them. He purchased his parents’ dream home when he achieved a certain level of success around 2018.
The bond he shares with his parents is palpable, and he even went for a pedicure with Donna before the premiere of Creed III.
Furthermore, Michael is a devoted ambassador for Lupus LA, a cause close to his heart since his mother was diagnosed with the disease in 2000.
The actor’s parents and other family members were also present when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
As the release of Creed III approaches, fans eagerly anticipate Michael’s return to the big screen.
While it’s unclear if Creed will emerge victorious in the upcoming film, one thing is for sure – any actor who maintains a loving and supportive relationship with their parents is a winner in our books.
