Saifoulaye Freeman’s Father
Morgan Freeman is the most famous actor of his generation and has been dramatically acclaimed for more than six decades. He was born in Memphis on June 1st, 1937, to Mamie Edna (a teacher) and Morgan Porterfield Freeman, who was a barber.
Morgan’s first job involved working as a fighter pilot in the Air Force immediately after high school. However, he soon discovered this wasn’t what he wanted to do and started acting.
Morgan who has been in the film and television industry for many years, is one of the finest actors of Hollywood.
His career as an actor and musician began when he was only twelve years old when he was featured in the motion picture theatre production of “The Pawnbroker”. By the age of twenty-four, Morgan had made his feature film debut with a role in “Who Says I Can’t Ride A Rainbow?”.
This led to significant roles in films like “The Electric Horseman” and “Jacob’s Ladder”. However, despite his fame and prominence, very few details about his family are available to the public.

Morgana Freeman, Saifoulaye’s half-sister, just like Alfonso, has taken into acting. She featured in the movie Prophet of Death alongside her father, Morgan Freeman, debuted in 1981.

Jeanette Adair Bradshaw was also a musician who is best known for her performances in the band Crave. She enjoyed moderate success as part of this group, but it has been all but forgotten by most since it broke up in 1996.
Morgan and Jeanette Adair Bradshaw tied the knot in 1967. Jeanette, who was in another relationship, had a daughter Deena who Morgan adopted as her own. Deena Freeman joined the entertainment industry, not as an actor but rather as a hairstylist. One of her major projects was a stand-up comedy called The Magic of Belle Isle in 2012. She also served as a stylist in her father’s projects The Nutcracker, and The Four Realms which were released in 2018.
Deena was once married to Edward Hines, a relationship that led to them welcoming a daughter, E’Dena. However, the two were separated and their daughter was taken by Deena’s father Morgan and his second wife Myrna Colley-Lee. After this relationship, Deena has kept her love life private away from the public.
In 1996, E’Dena debuted on the big screen with Moll Flanders. She also worked as a production assistant in 2009, in the film Thick As Thieves, where Morgan starred as Ripley.
