Tracee Ellis Ross’s Dad Sees Her on Magazine Cover & Buys Every Copy in New Instagram Video

Tracee Ellis Ross has been in the spotlight for quite some time now. As the daughter of superstar singer Diana Ross, the 49-year-old actress was making appearances on television even as a young kid. Then, with lead roles on hit comedy series like Girlfriends and Black-ish, Ross has been a mainstay on American TV screens, while also appearing in Hollywood films and even a few music videos along the way.

So, you might assume that the excitement of Ross's fame would have worn off a little bit, but that's certainly not the case for her father, Robert Ellis Silberstein.

In a new video that Ross shared to her Instagram account, we see her father excitedly come across the newest edition of Harper's Bazaar, where his oldest daughter is on the cover. Upon finding the magazines in a Barnes & Noble, Silberstein quickly sweeps them up and runs to purchase them all. Ross captioned the video, “Dad and I spy…. with our little eyes…. my @harpersbazaarus cover issue! And mayhem ensues! Oh how I love my father @bobellis333.”

The editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar, Samira Nasr, commented on the video and said, “I can’t stop laughing!!” Meanwhile, Ross's sister, Rhonda, wrote, “This is SO GREAT!!!!!!!” and “Love you both so much!!!!” Kerry Washington comically added, “OMG obsessed with this. Also your dad and my dad need a play date.”

Silberstein showed his excitement on his own Instagram account, where he was seen holding up a copy of the magazine and smiling with Ross for a selfie.

Leading up to the magazine's release, the Black-ish actress had shared a few behind-the-scenes selfies that she took while shooting for the Harper's spread. In the pics, she posed while sporting a giant black Balenciaga coat.

If there's one thing we love more than Ross's fashion, it's her relationship with her family.
