Upon arrival, Mike took to Instagram to introduce his daughter to the world, and from what is obvious, the little princess brought a lot of joy and happiness into the couple’s life. Considering that she is a toddler, there are yet not many facts about Indiana, including the names of the schools she attends. We are yet to see what the future holds for her.
In March 2022, during her 2nd birthday, her parents individually posted her photos on Instagram and showered her with a lot of good wishes.

Kyra shared the good news of their son’s arrival alongside a photo of herself snuggling with the new baby. “Son, we prayed for you!!! You have officially rocked our world”, she captioned the post.
While speaking to PEOPLE back in 2016, Mike Epps said “I wish I had a son“. He said this after revealing that his mother had eight sons and only one girl. “I think the gene pool switched up. I had all the girls that she wanted!”, he jokingly added. While announcing her second pregnancy, Kyra mentioned that it was important for her to give baby Indy a baby sister/brother she could be close to and grow up with just as she was close with her own siblings.
Meanwhile, Epps had earlier announced his wife’s pregnancy in June with a photo of her growing baby bump. “God bless My beautiful wife 💝 we prayin’ 4 a son”, he captioned the photo. Mike Jr. is still just a baby and still has much growing up to do.

Mariah Epps is the third daughter of the famous stand-up comedian born to him by his ex-wife Mechelle McCain. She was born in 2007 and is now 19 years old. Mariah has only one biological sister Maddie and three half-sisters Bria, Makayla, and Indiana Rose.
From what we can see, Mariah had a close bond with her father while she was younger as she is described as the daddy’s girl. She was mostly seen with her father either on a short trip, hanging out, or just spending time together. Mariah is cute and has a beautiful smile, and in fact, everyone in her family is fond of her and not only her father.
It is somewhat difficult to stay up with the latest in Mariah’s life because she is not found anywhere on social media. However, we guess that she might still be receiving her high school education or has already gained entrance into a university. Whichever one, it is apparent that Mike Epp’s third daughter is not caught up with social media life for now.

Mechelle who didn’t walk away from the marriage without drama stated that they actually separated in February 2016 while Mike in his filing stated that they had been apart since June 2015. In any way, the two officially got the divorce papers in June 2017 and went their separate ways.
McCain demanded spousal support and full legal custody of their two daughters but that was not granted by the court. On the heels of their divorce, Mechelle McCain severally called out Epps on social media for some reasons including cutting out her access to funds to make her accept a lower settlement. However, it seemed the two has settled their scores and moved on with their lives peacefully.

The couple has remained together ever since then and living happily.
