Jasmine Cephas Jones has followed in the footsteps of her actor father, Ron Cephas Jones, and in the process made some Emmys history.
They became the first father-daughter pair to win Emmys in the same year.
She won for outstanding actress in a short form comedy or drama series for her performance in the Quibi series "#FreeRayshawn" while he won for his guest starring role on "This Is Us."
It was the first Emmy for the "Hamilton" actress and the second for her dad via his "This Is Us" work.
“As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment," Deadline reported Ron Cephas Jones saying after his win. "Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.”
In an interview with CNN prior to her win, Jasmine Cephas Jones spoke with pride about her father.
"One of the reasons why I'm acting is because of him and he's taught me a lot," she said. "He's a great dad, but he's also a great mentor and to be able to have this moment it's like full circle for me."
