The promising actor is most well-known for the titular role in the 1998 Marvel Studios’ movie titled Blade.

However, people won’t stop questioning Wesley’s son Jelani Asar Snipes’ lifestyle, whereabouts, career, age, Instagram, and many more. So, to answer all those queries we have come up with a write-up, answering all the queries you might have about Jelani.

So, let’s begin!

Jelani Asar Snipes Has Mostly Spent His Early Life With His Mother: Info On His Age, Bio

Jelani Asar Snipes was born in 1988, in the USA, to his father Wesley Snipes, and mother April Dubios. As of 2023, the star kid is 34 years old.

However, the truth is something else. Apparently, his dad bought a home nearby so that he could see his boy whenever he was in town. Sometimes, the actor recalls how his dad, Jelani’s grandpa, left him and wasn’t there for most of his growing-up years. So, he tries his best to be a present dad. But, Wesley, on the other hand, also admits to feeling regret that he has been a less-than-ideal father.

Hence, he made a mindset that, he will not let the same thing happen to his son Jelani. The Blade star said,

“I absolutely make it a point to see him whenever I can. The most important thing I can teach him is knowledge of self-to know who he is.”

The actor further adds,

“I know that as long as I take advantage of the opportunities I have to be with him, he’ll want to be with me. That’s what’s important to me.”

Jelani Belongs To Mixed Descent
