Mitchell — who’s also dad to daughter Wisdom, 2, and son Lyric, 20 — is selective about posting photos of his children on social media. But like many a proud parent, he can’t resist showing off their hard-earned achievements!

In May, the All That executive producer shared a photo slideshow from the 17-year-old’s high-school graduation in addition to a video of the moment she got her diploma. The graduate was dressed in her white cap and gown as she walked across the stage amid jubilant cheers from her loved ones.

“She did it!! 👩🏽‍🎓 Congratulations @alluremariah So proud of all your accomplishments and you have a blessed, bright beautiful future ahead!” Mitchell captioned the post. “I love you so much! And I am very proud of you!”
