Many of us have gotten to know Baron Vaughn on Grace and Frankie, and tonight at 9p on Fusion you will see a whole different side of him in his documentary Fatherless.
The actor/comedian never met his father because he walked out on his pregnant mother when she was just 19 years old. Now, 35 years later, he wants to get to know the man who abandoned him before he was ever born. Tonight’s special will follow his search for his father, and a look at his life being Fatherless.
He had a good life and a good mother, but there was something missing. Tonight, he will contact a private investigator and very quickly, that PI will find Vaughn’s father. The good news doesn’t stop there, his father wants to speak him. Vaughn calls his dad, but gets his voicemail. Then his father calls him back and gets his son voicemail.
Eventually the two of them will meet, he will finally see if he looks like him and what similarities they have. He will also hear his father’s side of the story, which causes them to take a DNA test to prove that they are in deed related.
Vaughn will get a lot of answers tonight, more than just who is father is. He will also learn who he is in this interesting documentary that shows us what one in four American kids go through being raised by a single parent. Wanting to get to know who their other parent is, even though they love, respect and honor the person who not only gave them life but also the person who made them who they are.
