Ian Jr. was his mother’s world. The two would oftentimes be seen together at red carpet events and such, just as they were when Ian referred to his mom as “super mom” before the 2019 Golden Globe Awards. See the video below…
For her 50th birthday in 2021, Ian shared this touching message about his mom on Instagram:
“Happy birthday to my co, so extremely proud of you and inspired by your love, artistry and gangsta. To be able to watch you take this lifetime by its neck and make it yours is something i will forever be grateful for. But to have you as my mother is the greatest gift I could ask for. To be all that you are while always having the time to be there, love and support me unconditionally is truly remarkable. The whole marvel universe ain’t got s*** on you, your the real superhero!”
Describing his mother, Ian once said, “She’s just a super mom. She doesn’t really let bad workdays or anything come back and ruin the time that we have. It’s really awesome to have a mother who I can enjoy spending time with.”
