Tracee Ellis Ross Shares Several Throwback Pics with Her Mom & Sisters

Tracee Ellis Ross is taking a trip down memory lane, complete with meme-worthy pics and snaps of her mother, Diana Ross.

On her Instagram Stories, the Black-ish actress shared a series of rare throwback photos that were originally posted by Mother Tongue Magazine. And among them was an iconic Ebony magazine cover from 1973, featuring a pic of Diana in swimwear as she holds Tracee and her sister, Rhonda. Tracee captioned the pic, "Yup that's a teeny ME!"

The cover also features an iconic quote on parenting from the proud mom, who said, "If loving them means spoiling them, that's just too bad."

Tracee then shared another snap of herself looking skeptical as her mother, who's rocking a full suit, entertains the audience with her three daughters around her. The 49-year-old star wrote, "...And a very suspect little me." (BTW, if it looks familiar, that's because Tracee also posted a variation of this pic on her own page, where she encouraged followers to come up with funny captions.)

Additionally, the Pattern founder shared vintage shots of her mom's best moments with her daughters, including one black-and-white photo of Diana spending quality time with her little girls backstage. Baby Chudney sports a wide grin on her mom's lap while Rhonda talks to her mom. Meanwhile, little Tracee is amused as she looks straight into the camera.

Another standout pic reveals all three girls and their mom posing in front of a portrait of Diana, and it looks worthy of a Christmas card.

Tracee's throwbacks come only a few days after she shared an iconic Oscars pic with her mom. At the time, the duo attended the 1990 Oscars, where Tracee wore a red Moschino dress and Diana wore a trendy black gown. The actress wrote, "I think this might have been baby’s first #Oscars, this was 1990! I’m wearing a @moschino “Olive Oyl” set and @maisonalaia shoes."

Keep these awesome throwbacks coming, Tracee.
