Regina King Calls Late Son Ian Her “Guiding Light” in Touching Tribute

Regina King’s Son Ian Alexander Jr. Dead at 26

Regina King is honoring her late son Ian Alexander Jr.

One year after his passing, the Oscar winner shared a moving tribute to her only child on what would have been his 27th birthday.

“January 19th is Ian’s Worthday,” Regina wrote on Instagram. “As we still process his physical absence, we celebrate his presence. We are all in different places on the planet…so is Ian. His spirit is the thread that connects us.” 

In the first, her first since his death, the actress shared a video of a sky lantern burning bright as it floated through the night.

“Of course orange is your favorite color…Its the fire and the calm,” she continued. “I see you in everything I breath. My absolute favorite thing about myself is being ….Regina the mother of Ian the GodKing. Continue to shine bright, my guiding light.” 

Ian died by suicide shortly after his 26th birthday in January 2022.
