Actress Tracee Ellis Ross brought a whole lot of sexy to the timeline on Sunday, Aug. 2. The 47-year-old had her Instagram comments section jumping after she shared two photos of herself enjoying the sunny weather in a sexy two-piece bathing suit.
The “Black-ish” star was spotted lounging on a picnic bench in a string black bikini and Nike Air Jordan sneakers with her hair styled in a bun. “Pool party! Except I don’t have a pool. And I’m too scared to have a party,” the actress captioned the snap. “Siri play “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.”
Fans and friends flocked to the comments section of the post that has already gained over 800,000 likes, including comedian Robin Thede who wrote, “MAAM I NEED A POOL TO COOL OFF AFTER SEEING THESE PICS.”
“I tried to like this twice,” a second fan wrote before adding, “Aunty slays.” Meanwhile, a third user jokingly wrote, “Lord I have seen what you done for others.”
A fourth fan left a sweet message to the actress stating, “AMEN BEAUTIFUL TRUTHS EXACTLY. I AGREE MY QUEEN COUSIN TRACEEELISROSS YOUR MIND BODY SOUL IS A TEMPLE. THE BODY IS RIGHT AND RITE YEEEEES INDEEDY SWEETIE EXTRAORDINARY SMART INTELLIGENT MULTITALENTED WOMAN ALWAYS AT ALL TIMES.”
Another fan teased the star calling her a “showoff.” They added, “Just kidding … we luv you. Inspiration for everything you are, & your out fits & humble. Be safe during this time of crises in covid-19 virus.”
Though many may know Ross for her acting chops and being the famous daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross, the “Girlfriends” star revealed during an interview with host Willie Geist in 2017 that she initially wanted to be a model. “I wanted to model when I was young, mostly because of the clothes,” she explained. “Going into the modeling thing was actually the first place I started to find myself strangely. I was styling my own shoots and learning that whole industry.” The Brown University alum eventually found her true calling in acting and most recently received her fourth Emmy nomination for her role as Dr. Rainbow Johnson in the ABC-TV series “Black-ish.”
