Kids grow up so fast!

That’s what Code Black actor Boris Kodjoe must have been thinking when he shared a sweet father-daughter moment on Instagram Friday. He was watching his daughter Sophie prep for her first school dance.

The actor shared three photos of his 11-year-old daughter with Nicole Ari Parker. In the pictures, Sophie, with a fresh ‘do and nails, is all dressed up and ready to go in a sleek black dress.

“Seems like moments ago when I was rocking her to sleep,” he wrote. “Now she’s a beautiful little lady.”

Sophie is the inspiration behind the couple’s foundation, Sophie’s Voice, which aims to raise awareness about spina bifida. Spina bifida is a neural birth defect that can cause leg, bladder and bowel damage in infants and children.
