Her dad was born with a club foot

Her dad is the fourth oldest of 10 children of his parents. He was born with a club foot and had to go through corrective surgery. 

During the conversation with Good Day New York, he revealed being born with a club foot. 

He said since having been born with a club foot, he was able to get much love and affection and more time from his mother than any other siblings, and his brothers Keenen and Dwayne used to hate him for that. 

His oldest brother Dwayne is who his mother used to babysit Damon, would beat him up and hang him on the door hook.

He also talked about his plan for the Carolines to speak about his life and being a grandfather. 

Speaking in the context, he said he wishes he was a grandfather before a father because, as per him, it's the perfect way to love a child and that it's all the love without responsibility. 

He added he gets a chance to spoil them. He bought his granddaughter an electric drum set with 25,000 different sounds, filled it up with the candy, took her home, and told her it plays up for her mom. 

Damon also said he thinks he is a great father because he taught his kids how to be funny and if they were funny at school, they wouldn't get into trouble.

What holidays and get-togethers are like in the huge extended Wayans family

Wayans family is a huge extended family with more than 60 members. 

Damon Wayan Jr., while appearing on Ellen's show, talked about his huge family and what the holidays and get-togethers are like in their family. 

He said all his family members get together for special occasions like Christmas and Thanksgiving and humorously added, 

"You gotta get there early because there will be no food left." 

When Ellen asked if they all get along or if there are arguments on such days with so many people altogether, Damon said, "not really." 

Explaining that, he added, on the average thanksgiving day, Keenen would find the room to sit in and holds a court where everybody sits around him and listens to his old Hollywood days and funny stuff.

Damon Wayans Sr, “Comedy should always have its place”

Professionally, as mentioned, Damon serves as an actor and a comedian. The artist claimed that Comedy should always have its place as it totally breaks tensions. 

And that’s the thing every human needs right now. During the conversation, Damon also mentioned his family. 

He shared that the place of his family was like being always surrounded by laughs and jokes. He shared how they used to live in a small apartment back then. 

Also joking and laughing all the time loud, his parents never stopped them to lower their voices or just ordered him to keep quiet as they were instantly having fun, Damon added. 

When asked Damon, when did he realize or be aware that his comedy could be his career? Damon quickly responds after being thrown out by a high school thrice. 

Also, another thing is that he used to hang out with Keenen, and at that time, Keenen was doing stand-up. 

He shared that he would watch Keenen and also provide him with his jokes to try too. Damon replied his jokes worked. 

Doing so, Damon felt like, why doesn’t he also do it? Damon recalls his conversation with his wife where one day, he constantly praised Keenen for how good he was at his comedy. 

Damon shared that his spouse told him to step up into the comedy field, and if he didn’t, she would go sleep with Keenen

Other than that, Damon claimed that having kids is a thankless job, but the grandchildren are the maker. 

Continuing, he also shared his wish that he wanted to go live with his son Damon Wayans Jr.
