In my mind, there’s a perpetual youthfulness to Kel Mitchell. After all, many of us feel like we grew up with him. To acknowledge the fact that he’s no longer a teenager, would also say something about our own fleeting youth.
Which is why it was a shock to the system to learn that Mitchell took his middle child, his daughter Allure, to college this past week.
To be fair, Mitchell got a bit of an early start. At 40-years-old, he has a 20-year-old son named Lyric, the 18-year-old college freshman and a 2-year-old daughter named Wisdom.
Mitchell shared the news of his daughter’s first day on his Instagram page.
Earlier this year, Mitchell shared photos and video from Allure’s high school graduation.
The rest of the day, Mitchell shared highlights from Allure’s first day, including setting up her dorm room and meeting her new roommate.
While Allure is starting a new chapter in college, Mitchell is embarking on a new journey of his own as a competitor on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” He’ll join Mary Wilson from “The Supremes,” Karamo Brown from “Queer Eye” and most controversially, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer. The new season will premiere on September 16.
In the meantime, check out the images of Mitchell’s children over the years.
